C1 practical training is a popular choice of course for both professional and recreational purposes. Our C1 courses are ideal for those wanting to drive a horsebox or those looking to begin a career with a Medium Goods Vehicle (MGV) licence requirement (a paramedic, for example).

EP Training’s C1 practical training courses are conducted using a modern VW Crafter panel van which can be coupled with a trailer weighing over 750kg to achieve C1E (trailer) entitlement.

We’ve been delivering C1 practical training courses for over 35 years. Our staff are on hand to help answer questions and queries on any element of the training course. We can arrange medicals and assist with filling in DVLA forms.

What is C1 training?

A category C1 vehicle refers to a truck or van MGV that has a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of over 3.5 tonnes but not more than 7.5 tonnes.

During the course, EP Training’s DVSA approved instructors will ensure students receive plenty of experience and quality one-to-one tuition out on local roads ahead of the practical driving test in Guildford.

For C1E trailer licence acquisition we have access to off road facilities to practice manoeuvres and coupling/uncoupling.

C1 entitlement and Driver CPC courses

Gaining a category B (car) licence prior to 1st January 1997 may mean that C1 entitlement has already be granted under grandfather rights.

We strongly recommend that existing licences are checked before booking a course. If in doubt, contact us for help regarding entitlements and grandfather rights.

The same rules for Driver CPC apply for MGVs as they do for LGVs. In order to drive professionally, for hire and reward, an Initial Driver CPC course will need to be completed in order to receive a Driver Qualification Card (DQC). Periodic Driver CPC will then be required every five years in order to maintain the DQC.

EP Training runs C1 courses with or without Driver CPC.

Option 1 C1 and Driver CPC Training Course

£1,549.00


Anyone wanting to drive a category C1 vehicle professionally will need to pass Driver CPC as well as C1. Having one without the other makes no sense.  Anyone without both will not be able to source employment.

EP Trainings' experienced team can guide and manage the entire Driver CPC and C1 acquisition from medical to final practical test. With 5 tests in total, why not let EP Training manage the whole process?

Price includes:

  • A medical with our GP (arranged at EP Training's premises in Bookham, Surrey)
  • Assistance with applying for your provisional C licence
  • The official theory training material
  • All 3 theory tests booked (multi choice, hazard perception and Driver CPC case study)
  • A 3 day practical driving course
  • 1 day Module 4 CPC course and exam.

There are NO hidden extras and the price includes vat and all test fees.
