Premium 7.5 Tonne Driver Training in Surrey
EP Training pioneers C1, 7.5 tonne driver training in Surrey. With thousands of successful graduates, we provide superior training at locations in Addlestone, Guildford, Leatherhead, and Cranleigh, West Sussex.
Our trainees enjoy top-notch training on new and well-maintained vehicles, ensuring your success in obtaining a C1 licence.
C1 Licence - Your Gateway to Medium Goods Vehicle Driving
A C1 licence enables you to operate goods vehicles from 3.5 to 7.5 tonnes. If you passed your car driving test before 1.1.1997, you already have C1 entitlement. The process to obtain a C1 licence, despite not being an HGV or LGV category, includes undergoing a medical, applying for the provisional licence, clearing a few theories, and passing the C1 driving test.
Comprehensive Support for C1 Licence Acquisition
EP Training assists you every step of the way:
- Arrange your medical at our Great Bookham centre
- Supply, check and send all provisional licence application forms to DVLA
- Provide theory tuition and book all theory tests (Module 1)
- Deliver high-quality driver training (Module 3)
- Arrange your Driver CPC, Module 2 and 4 (if applicable)
Typically, the process duration from medical to final driving test is 8 weeks, subject to DVLA and theory test timings.
Choosing Between C1 and Cat C
While new industry entrants can choose between C1 or Cat C, we advise pursuing Cat C if your goal is to become a lorry driver. However, for roles like ambulance driving or operating a 7.5 tonne horsebox, the C1 licence is the appropriate and less challenging option.
Understanding Driver CPC
Driver CPC, both Initial and Periodic, applies to “professional” drivers of goods vehicles over 3.5 tonnes. If needed, it requires passing an additional theory and practical test (Module 2 and 4). Once Modules 2 and 4 have been passed, you will receive a Driver CPC card valid for 5 years, subject to periodic training.
Trustworthy C1 Licence Training
Whether you need end-to-end support from medical to driving test or just the driving part, EP Training is your ideal partner. Our stellar reviews speak for our commitment to excellence.
