Category C1 Licence

You can drive vehicles between 3,500 and 7,500kg maximum authorised mass (with a trailer up to 750kg).

A C1 licence is a type of driving licence that permits you to drive vehicles with a maximum load weight of 3,500kg to 7,500kg.

In the UK, you can typically drive a vehicle weighing around 3,500kg with your standard driving licence (Category B).

There is an exception for any driver that passed their driving test (obtained their current licence) before 1 January 1997. They are not required to get a C1 licence. This is because a pre -97 car licence had the C1 entitlement listed. But keeping this licence means you need to pass the D4, a medical and vision assessment to ensure you can drive a vehicle safely.

There are lots of motorhomes that are under the weight category of 3,500kg. If you want to drive larger motorhomes, you need to get a C1 licence, which involves an additional driving test.

"Pleasure to do my C1 lessons with David. It was good to learn in a truck from a very knowledgeable and down to earth instructor that made me feel at ease. Also very affordable prices and local to me in Glasgow so would highly recommend to anyone needing to learn their C1 or any other Class Licence. Even better that I passed my test first time. Thank you David for all your help."
