Other - Car 2 Van
If you hold a Cat B car licence you are able to drive goods vehicles up to 3500kg. This could include long, high, and heavy panel vans with reduced visibility and therefore with completely different driving characteristics to a normal car.
We have developed this course to help drivers to be more aware of the differences of driving larger vehicles and help them to drive them safely and with confidence.
You can provide the vehicle or we can supply the panel van. If you provide the same vehicle for the training course that will be driven afterwards we find that this offers more effective learning. Attendees will receive a certificate for completing this course.Start Now

Who should train? Why should I train?
Often when you are asked to drive a company van or hire a vehicle for moving, you may already be legally entitled for driving the vehicle with your standard UK licence. However, the vehicle could be three times longer and heavier than the car that you normally drive.
There can also be additional laws that you may not be aware of – for example, the UK has different speed limits on many roads for commercial vehicles, including even small vans. Stopping distance and corners can be drastically affected by the extra weight and additional vehicle safety checks should be made before driving the vehicle.
Our Car 2 Van course provides practical and theory training to help you to drive larger vehicles safely and with confidence.
The course covers:
- General driving
- Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving (SAFED)
- Daily vehicle safety checks
- Driving with extra weight
- Manoeuvring and parking safely
- Awareness and planning
