To get started
The first step to starting a career as an HGV driver is to get your provisional Category C (also known as a Class 2) licence, which allows you to drive rigid goods vehicles with a gross weight in excess of 7.5 tons while accompanied by an Instructor or Supervising Driver.
Before you apply, please ensure that you
- hold a full Category B (car) driving licence
- are at least 18 years old*
- can pass a driver medical check
To apply for your provisional Category C licence, you will need to submit two forms to the DVLA – D2 and D4.
