What is a Class 1 Licence (Cat CE) and How Does it Compare to a Class 2 (Cat C)?

The distinction between Class 1 and Class 2 HGV licences is crucial for budding HGV drivers. Holding a Class 1 licence allows you to maneuver category C+E vehicles – articulated lorries or drawbar vehicles, with a combined weight of up to 44 tonnes.

Can I Skip the Class 2 Licence and Go Straight for Class 1?

Since November 2021, changes in regulation have enabled candidates to bypass the Class 2 licence directly for Class 1, streamlining the path to becoming a Class 1 driver. At 123HGV, our direct access course is a testament to our adaptability and success, boasting an impressive pass rate and popularity among our trainees.

How Much Can I Earn as an HGV Driver in Manchester?

In Manchester, the earning potential for HGV drivers is significant. Experienced Class 1 drivers can command salaries up to £50k annually, with opportunities to increase earnings through specialised work like tramping or obtaining qualifications for transporting hazardous goods.

Achieving your HGV licence in Manchester can be swift with 123HGV. Transitioning from a Cat C to a full licence could take as little as a week. New entrants should anticipate a 4-5 week period for direct access courses, including time for a D4 medical and provisional licence application.
