The class ‘C+E’ licence replaced the older class I licence in 1997 and passing the ‘C+E’ test is a requirement for operating an articulated vehicle or a rigid vehicle towing a large trailer. Without the ‘C+E’ licence you are limited to towing a 750 Kg gross weight trailer.
While the ‘C+E’ licence allows the operation of both types of vehicle you may wish to note that haulage companies operating an articulated fleet may not wish to employ a person who passed the test on a rigid and drag (trailer), this is because the characteristics of the vehicles are some what different and inexperienced drivers moving onto an articulated vehicle have been identified as being at higher risk of accident until sufficiently experienced.
The provisional licence for a ‘C+E’ vehicle is an automatic entitlement on passing the ‘C’ licence. No further medical or theory test pass is required prior to training.
