LGV / PCV Categories

Hi Can someone help me!

I am filling out my application for a provisional licence for LGV / PCV.

What categories do i apply for. Can someone explain what each category stands for and then maybe from this i can decide which one i need.

Can i apply for both the LGV and PCV at the same time?

Many Thanks

Re: LGV / PCV Categories

Yes you can apply for both LGV and PCV provisionals.  Category C1 is for 3.5 to 7.5 tonne goods vehicles, whereas Category C is for over 7.5 tonnes.  Category D1 is for minibuses with 8 to 16 passenger seats and category D is for passenger carrying vehicles with more than 16 passenger seats.  Even if you do only require either C1 or D1 at the moment, you can still apply for C or D provisional (age permitting) and take a C1 or D1 test.  That way you already have the provisional licence for C and D should you want to upgrade later.

Hope that makes sense.

Thanks for your help.

Is it possible to apply direct for C and D category and then when you pass the test you also get C1 and D1? Or do you have to do them in order i.e C1 and then C?

Thanks

You can go straight for C or D as long as you within the required age range.  The ones that you have to do C or D first are C+E and D+E, which is lorry or bus with trailer.
