C1 driving lessons London

I am sure with the current shortage of drivers you’re looking at passing C1 driving test soon. Maybe we can give you some tips and advice.

Remember if you pass the 7.5-tonne C1 test, then you become entitled to drive C1 rigid vehicles up to 7.5, plus a 750kg trailer.

You might have noticed that when you pass your Cat C driving test, then you are able to drive a rigid vehicle up to 20 Tons, as well as a C1 category vehicle. 

If you find yourself confused about C and C1, then call us on 07818 408 336 or 07984 493798.

So what other advice would we give you?

Our first bit of advice is every time you speak to a company about training ensure it is them providing the training because there are some agencies out there acting as middlemen. Remember if you book through an agency, you will have to pay agency fees on top. They will not guarantee the quality of the training provided so your C1 training course could fall short.

Sooner or later you will realize that passing the C1 driving test really is based on the quality of the training. 

So call us today. Tel. 07818 408336 or 07984 493798
