Important Notice - New Legislation was introduced at the beginning of April 2010 regarding who can supervise learner drivers in Category C1-7.5 tonnes.Those holding pre-1997 licences on "grandfather rights" can no longer supervise learners

Only drivers who have passed the DSA C1 or C LGV test can now supervise learners in category C1 - 7.5 tonnes (7.5t), providing they passed the relevant test prior to the new legislation and only if grandfather rights were already held. If they passed the practical test after this date the standard three year qualifying period to act as a supervising driver for the relevant category applies.

Diamond Driver Training provide training and courses for the category C1 - 7.5 Tonne Licence (c1-7.5t).
For example horsebox, ambulance, motorhome.
Diamond Driver Training also provide C1+E - 7.5t & Trailer test courses for anyone wishing to tow with their C1 vehicle.

As with the B+E Entitlement, drivers passing their test from January 1997 (including re-tests) DO NOT have automatic entitlement to drive a vehicle over 3500kg. In order to gain this entitlement an additional C1 driving test and theory test must be taken and passed.

If you require the C1 - 7.5t licence for your work you may also require a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) in addition to the vocational licence. www.direct.gov.uk/en/Motoring/Drivingforaliving/Drivinglorriesbusesandcoaches/DG_171186

The route for potential candidates for the C1-7.5t test is as follows:
  • Have a Drivers Medical to prove that you are physically fit to drive a Category C1 vehicle, form D4 needs to be completed and can be obtained online www.dft.gov.uk/dvla/onlineservices/order_forms.aspx
  • Obtain your provisional entitlement on your licence by sending completed forms D2 and D4 with your licence to the DVLA. The licence will generally be returned within 2-4 weeks with the provisional entitlement added.
  • Take and pass the LGV Theory Test and Hazard Perception Test (please note these are two seperate tests).
  • Ring Diamond Driver Training to book your practical training for the C1 test - 7.5t.
