Student Paramedic - Ambulance -Cat C1
Cat C1 goods vehicles have a GVW up to 7500kg. If you passed your car test before 1st January 1997 you probably already have the C1 on acquired rights. If you passed your car test after 1st January 1997 you will need to take a DVSA test to drive this vehicle type. Ambulance drivers usually need a C1 and the majority of mid-size delivery lorries and horse-boxes require a C1 licence. If you are going to drive an ambulance or training to become a student paramedic you will need a Cat C1. You can jump straight on to a Cat C (HGV Class 2) and do not have to do the C1 first. The Cat C allows you to drive rigid vehicles up to and over 7500kg.
Our experienced team will guide you through every aspect of the training, from licencing requirements, paperwork, training options, and testing.
- Must be 18 years or more
- Must have a Valid UK driving licence
Who should train? Why should I train?
Cat C1 vehicles are commonly used for horse boxes, mid-size delivery vehicles and ambulances. We will help you to understand the licence requirements for driving these types of vehicles and guide you through the application, training, and qualification processes.
If you have a standard car licence you can jump straight on to the bigger Cat C Class 2. The Cat C is a very similar process to the C1 but will allow you to drive bigger vehicles.
If you are looking for employment options we recommend doing the Cat C because there are more opportunities, increased flexibility, and better salary prospects.
Many UK ambulance services request you to get the Cat C1 before applying for a role.
We can arrange a flexible training course to work around you.
We will book your theory tests and set you up to revise!
