Interested in HGV training in Nottingham? Candidates who would like a future in the transport industry can begin their career as truck and lorry drivers. They will, however, need Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) or Large Goods Vehicle (LGV) training to prepare them for the challenges of this type of career. Training also boosts their confidence; therefore increasing the likelihood of passing the requried driving tests conducted by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency or DVLA.
HGV or LGV licences are sub-divided into four: Category C, C+E, C1 or C1+E. To drive vehicles with a minimum weight of 3,500 kg with or without a trailer which does not weigh more than 750 kg, you should get a Category C licence. The Category C+E licence is needed if the trailer is over 750 kg. However, you have to receive the Category C licence first as a prerequisite for the Category C+E. In order to drive vehicles weighing at least 3,500 kg and at most 7,500 kg and which may tow a trailer less than 750 kg in weight, a Category C1 licence is necessary. For C1 vehicles with a trailer heavier than 750 kg, drivers must have a Category C1+E licence. This is after he has earned the Category C1 licence and the total weight of the vehicle and trailer should not exceed 12,000 kg.
