Which category of license is correct for you?
Category C1: is for a rigid goods vehicle weighing between 3.5 tonnes and 7.5 tonnes. Vehicles drawing trailers not over 750kg maximum authorised mass are included in this category. Drivers must have a minimum age of 18 years.
Category C: is also known as a Rigid. The licence required to drive a Category ‘C’ vehicle is also known as a ‘Class 2’. This category allows the holder to drive any rigid goods vehicle with more than 2 axles. Drivers must have a minimum age of 18 years.
Category C + E: is for an articulated lorry, often called Artic, also known as class 1. This category allows the holder to drive a vehicle weighing over 3.5 tonnes with a trailer over 750 kg maximum authorised mass. This licence can be obtained once the driver has their licence back with the full Category C on it. Drivers must have a minimum age of 18 years.
Category D: is any bus or coach with more than 8 passenger seats and a trailer weighing up to 750kg. Minimum age of driver is 18 years.

The Certificate of Professional Competence (also known as Driver CPC Qualifications) has been a mandatory part of any professional drivers’ qualifications since September 2009. Learn to Drive Me now offer classroom-based CPC courses in Bristol for all drivers of HGVs, LGV and PCVs. These drivers all now need a Driver CPC qualification to go with their licence which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional drivers of LGVs and PCVs throughout their careers.
Learn to Drive Me now offers CPC training in Bristol and the surrounding area for new drivers to complete the mandatory initial CPC qualification, and also the required 35 hours of Periodic Training over 5 years in sessions of 5 days each lasting 7hours to ensure your skills are kept up to date.

In 2 1/2 days I took and passed my CPC and practical driving test.
Mark is an absolutely superb trainer and I learned more form him in 2 1/2 days that the 3 weeks I was with a bus operator.
I certainly will not hesitate to recommend him.
Many thanks Mark and Rachel.

Training was efficient and well tailored to the test; I passed first time with one minor. Company may be a little rough around the edges but ultimately they know what they’re doing and they do it professionally enough, would recommend.

Mark Callaghan from Learntodriveme took me through my D Licence ( Bus – Coach ) training.
Mark was very good in putting over to me the skills I required in driving his training Bus through every street in Bristol to the standard required.
He brought me up to the level required quickly & it was my lack of Bus experience that led me taking the test 2 x to pass.
Thank you Mark for your training & would recommend others to use Learntodriveme for Bus or other training services Mark & Rachel offer.

Called a few companies regards passing my class 2 licence but could tell from the moment i spoke to mark this was the company i was gonna use. Mark suggested i could come and have a free 30 minutes of driving the truck before booking to make sure it was something I wanted to do as a career. Passed my class 2 and cpc with no faults to later return to pass my class one.
If your looking to do any of your licences I would certainly recomend using this company!
