LGV Training at its very best. We only train our students in ex-industry LGV vehicles, no shortend or cut down trucks at Parrot.
Category C + E
And now you wanna drive an even bigger truck? Well, this one’s about as big as they get. You’ll be needing the Category C+E licence for this one, or if you’re a bit old school we’ll call it Class 1.
Most students enroll on a four or five day course, with the test being taken on the last day. The course includes plenty of on the road practical experience, with some off road practice for the reverse manoeuvre and coupling/uncoupling exercise. All of our instructors are ex-industry, so know their stuff. We have our own on site private manoeuvring area for the reversing exercise and couple/uncouple.
The Training Vehicle
You will be driving a DAF CF curtainsided articulated truck. It’s also ex-industry and hasn’t been altered in any way, this reflects a more realistic driving experience (no chopped down, shortened minimum test requirement vehicles at Parrot). This truck is at maximum legal length, the full 16 metres and weighs around 22,500kgs gross so driving it will give you an excellent understanding of what it will be like in the real world when you have passed the test and driving a truck for a living.
We have full trainer booking facilities that allow us to book and manage your practical test. If you already hold the Category C (Class 2) entitlement then you’ll be delighted to know you won’t have to take another theory test.
