From April 2014 it is possible to pass your driving test in an automatic category C+E type vehicle and gain a full manual HGV / LGV licence. As nearly all new trucks are fitted with automatic transmissions it makes sense to change the licence acquisition process to reflect this. At Bains! you can choose, C and C+E training on automatic or manual type lorries.

Once you start you C+E training course / Class 1 driver training, you’ll be given essential, practical experience and quality tuition from one of our DVSA Approved Instructors. We’ll tailor your training just for you, taking into account any towing experience you’ve had in the past.

We are one of the best truck driving schools in London. We’ll address your concerns, answer any questions you have and help you perfect towing manoeuvres. As part of your course, you’ll be shown how to couple and uncouple correctly and effectively, how to reverse and how to ensure and check your load is both legal and safe for travelling on the UK’s roads. C+E training courses / C+E driving lessons are held at our Hayes Middlesex office, near Heathrow Airport.

We have excellent off road facilities where manoeuvres can be carried out and practiced to perfection. In order to receive C+E entitlement on your licence, you will need to pass an official, practical test. This will take place at our local test centre in Yeading Middlesex. The test will last for approximately 90 minutes. You will be tested on and off the road. You will be asked questions by the examiner and be required to demonstrate towing procedures and methods. When you return at the test centre, you will be asked to complete a few more moves such as uncoupling/re-coupling the trailer, just as we've shown you during your training.
