Personal Learning Accounts
Part Time Day
Transport and Logistics
In a nutshell
This course will allow you to drive LGV category C1 goods vehicles up to 7.5 Tonne in gross weight. This could be small goods delivery vehicles, or ambulances within the emergency services.
Upon completion, you may decide to later upgrade to an LGV C (Class 2) or CE (Class 1) licence.
This course is available as part of a Personal Learning Account (PLA). PLA is an initiative from the Welsh Government which offers people the chance to access free, part-time courses with flexible and convenient learning that fits around their existing lifestyle (subject to eligibility).
This course is for...
... those aged 19 +, living in Wales, employed, and earning less than £29,534 per year
... anyone that already holds a car driving licence. You do not need to have held this for a certain period of time
... competent drivers looking to upskill and pursue a career in the transport industry as goods vehicle drivers
... individuals who wish to join the emergency services and drive an ambulance
Practical driver training is typically completed on a 1-to-1 basis over one and a half days, including your practical test. During this time, you will learn how to defect check, drive and manoeuvre a C1 vehicle to the required standard.
The practical test is made up of two parts:
- an ‘S shaped’ reverse exercise into a loading bay
- a 60 minute on-the-road drive
You will return for an additional day to complete your Driver CPC Module 4 qualification, which you will require in order to use your C1 licence for work purposes.
Prior to practical training, you will need to:
- complete a medical assessment in order to apply for your provisional licence
- pass the relevant LGV theory tests
These elements will be arranged on your behalf.
All courses may be subject to change and cancelled if deemed not viable to run.
