Class 1 HGV 17.5 hour Course - CPC (Class 1 LGV/HGV Courses)
Drivers can operate class C+E vehicles, which are articulated trucks weighing 7.5 tonnes or more and having detachable cabs and trailers that can frequently transport weights up to 44 tonnes, with the aid of the Class 1 HGV 17.5 hour course. Class 1 drivers, who frequently make more money than Class 2 drivers, are able to travel long distances.

Certificate of Professional Competence
Driver CPC, sometimes referred to as the Certificate of Professional Competence, mandates that you carry your CPC card with you whenever you drive an HGV or LGV on public property. Many will charge you if you are operating a vehicle on the road without the CPC certification with you.
Therefore, always keep your CPC card with you. It is imperative that you update your CPC card at least once every five years. In addition, you can verify the CPC card's expiration date and find out about the card's updating criteria by finishing the first 35 hours of the course.
The two exams that make up the CPC course are the CPC Theory Test and the CPC Practical Test. You will read more about the CPC Theory Test Practice and these two exams.
