Vehicles used for driver training

This gives you a full manual licence if you already have a (Cat B) manual car licence.  Training is one to one and is charged on a daily rate subject to your experience and ability rather than a set course.  Spread over a few days you have a chance to learn where you are going and work on your bad habits.   This is why we have a high first time pass rate.  Used for basic lorry driver training.  Cat C gives you a licence to drive up to 32 tonnes rigid. If you want a C1 licence which is rigid upto 7.49t, you are better off by doing the Cat C, it is the same test and theory and costs the same.  This means that for the ambulance service you can drive the super ambulances as they come on line.
