C1 Driver Training (3 days including C1 Practical test) (DVSA)

Intended Audience:

The 3 day C1 Driver Training is specifically designed for those who have minimal to no experience in driving a C1 category vehicle. The course is ideal for those who require some additional guidance and training in preparation for the C1 practical test.


During the 3 days, the learner will practice driving a category 1 vehicle, manoeuvring of the vehicle, vehicle safety and preparing for the C1 driving test. On day 3, the learner undertakes the DVSA C1 driving test with a DVSA examiner at a chosen centre (centre to be agreed on booking).

Please note that the C1 driving test booking dates, are subject to the DVSA availability.

Additionally, if you feel that you require a training package that is more suited for your specific requirements, please contact us to discuss.

Course Duration

3 Days

Entry Requirements:

In order to undertake a C1 driving course, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age and have a manual car (Cat B) licence.
  • Be able to read a new style number plate from a distance of 20 metres (the use of glasses or vision correction such as contact lenses is allowed).

Assuming that the learner already has a category B driving licence, you must complete the following steps prior to the C1 practical driving test:

Step 1: LGV medical test. To complete your LGV medical test, you must first
download the D4 medical form which can be downloaded from the website. The form must be taken with you to your medical, and a Doctor will complete the form accordingly. You can try your own GP practice to start, however private practices can offer driver medical checks. We recommend shopping around for the best price. This must then be sent to the DVLA in order to receive a provisional.

Step 2: Provisional C1 licence. Once you have completed your LGV medical, you must complete the D2 application form which can be obtained from your local post office or ordered from the DVLA online.

Step 3: The final step is to complete a LGV theory test which can be booked on the DVSA website or by calling the DVSA booking line on 0300 200 1122.
