You will be able to operate category C+E vehicles, which include articulated trucks with an average weight of 7.5 tonnes and one detachable trailer with a maximum weight of 44 tonnes, after completing this Class 1 HGV 17.5-hour course. Because they travel a greater distance than Class 2 drivers, Class 1 drivers make more money than Class 2 drivers.
As we previously stated, you must adhere to the correct standards, and you can only do this after completing the Class 1 HGV 17.5-hour course. So, without considering any other options, simply sign up for our GS Driver Training.
