Tilston Training offer courses and tests for the following LGV categories:
- C Rigid lorry of any size (Class 2)
- C + E Artic. (Class 1)
- C1 7.5 tonne
- C1 + E 7.5 tonne and trailer
If you are training to be a Paramedic or you would like to drive a horsebox or Motorhome over 3500kgs up to 7500 kgs then the C1 course and licence is what you need. However if you wish to drive something even bigger then the Cat C (Class 2) course and test will be required. With category C you will be able to drive any size rigid lorry.
We also offer training for C+E Artic (Class 1) as of 2021 you can go straight to C+E Class 1 from a car licence cat B. This will give you C1, C1 + E, C and C + E.
If you do not want to go as far as C+E then you can opt to skip C1 and go straight for C1 7.5 tonne and trailer towing category C1 + E. This will allow you a combination of up to 12 tonne combined weight. New laws passed in November 2021 now allow a post 1997 licence holder to go straight into category C1 + E without passing category C1 first. For people who passed their test prior to 1997 but who have the 107 restriction on their C1 + E licence which restricts them to a GTW of 8.250kgs then passing a C1 + E test will remove the 107 restriction allowing you a combination of up to 12 tonne.
We have our very own DVSA approved customer test centre so you can sit your category C or C1 7.5 tonne test in the very familiar area where you have been trained as the Examiner comes out to our training facility to conduct the test. This takes a lot of the stress away and makes it feel far less test like giving us fantastic first time pass results.
We are also DVSA approved assessors now for the new Mod 3a off road tests. This means we sign off the reversing and un-couple, re-couple exercises here at our site. The DVSA Examiner then only assesses your 60 minute on road drive now.
We have years of experience in getting people through their various driving tests, so you can rely on us to get you through your category C, C + E or C1 7.5 tonne test quickly and at a high standard. We really do pride ourselves on our exceptional pass rates and the fact that we do endeavour to get you through successfully within the shortest time scale possible, saving you money on the course and also on time from work.
Our instructors are friendly, patient and very reliable. All training is overseen by grade A rated standards checked DVSA approved Instructors who are trained to the highest standard and are all fully qualified, CRB checked and registered Advanced Driving Instructors. In addition, they have years of experience in teaching people to driver larger vehicles and also to tow trailers and caravans behind them. We provide LGV lessons across Wrexham, Mold, Deeside, Cheshire, Shropshire, Flint, Holywell, Denbigh and the surrounding areas.
