Category C1+E (7.5 tonne and trailer)

Category C1+E (7.5 Tonne and Trailer)

 

Introduction

This licence category will allow you to drive a 7.5 tonne vehicle towing a trailer that exceeds 750kgs.

If you passed your car driving test prior to January 1997 then you will have gained a C1+E licence but this will be restricted to trailers not weighing more than 750kgs (Total train weight of vehicle and trailer can not exceed 8250kgs). If you are required to tow trailers that exceed 750kgs then you will be required to take a C1+E course and test, on passing the test you will be able to tow trailers up to 4500kgs (Total train weight of vehicle and trailer can not exceed 12000kgs). Although you may have the Category C1+E on your current licence you will be required to have a medical to comply with current licensing legislation, apply for a provisional C1+E licence and take a theory test. Once your provisional licence has been approved and returned to you your theory test can be arranged, the theory test is made up of two parts; the multiple-choice part and the hazard perception part. The multiple choice part is delivered using a touch screen computer monitor and a mouse for the hazard perception part, the computer records your responses through the use of a computer mouse button.

You need to pass both parts to pass the theory test. If you pass one part and fail the other you will fail the whole test, and you will need to take both parts again.

If you passed your car driving test after January 1997 you will have to take a category C1 course and test before progressing on to category C1+E. In order to take a Category C1 course you will be required to undertake a medical examination to comply with the higher medical regulations that this licence category requires which we can arrange for you. Once you have had your medical you will need to apply for your provisional vocational licence.

Once your licence has been approved and returned to you your theory test can be arranged, the theory test is made up of two parts; the multiple-choice part and the hazard perception part. The multiple choice part is delivered using a touch screen computer monitor and a mouse for the hazard perception part, the computer records your responses through the use of a computer mouse button.

You need to pass both parts to pass the theory test. If you pass one part and fail the other you will fail the whole test, and you will need to take both parts again.
