LGV Category C Rigid Lorry Licence
Often called “LGV Class 2 licence” or “HGV Class 2 licence”,
LGV stands for Large Goods Vehicle and is often still referred to as HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle). Other than 7.5 tonne medium goods vehicle (category C1), this size vehicle is your first step to becoming a full size lorry driver.
You will first need to get category C provisional entitlement added to your licence which includes having a medical. You will also need to pass a Theory and Hazard perception test before taking a practical test.
Once you have this licence, you can also drive 7.5 tonne (C1) lorries and you will have provisional entitlement to drive articulated lorries (C+E) with no further theory test or medical to take.
At Kent and Medway LGV, the category C training vehicles are ex MoD training vehicles and are ideal for training purposes. As they are minimum vehicle requirements (length and weight) for test, they are among the easiest LGV vehicles on the road to learn in. They are in good condition, reliable and relatively low mileage as they have only been used for training from new.
