Some rules about learning to drive an HGV and bus or coach changed on 15 November 2021. The changes affect:
You can now:
Learn to drive in an articulated lorry (category CE) if your provisional lorry licence was issued from 15 November 2021 (if you had a provisional licence before this date, you need to take extra steps to upgrade your provisional licence)
Take your test in a large articulated lorry without having to pass one in a large rigid lorry (category C) first
This course gives the driver the quickest route possible from Category B licence (Car) to C+E.
The combined course covers both the ‘C’ and ‘C+E’ licences allowing you to train to be a Cat C+E driver in as short a timeframe as possible.
