Whats the difference between HGV and LGV?

Absolutely NOTHING! Its just a name change. We don't actually know why they changed the name, but it was changed in 1992. LGV is the new name for HGV, instead of Heavy Goods Vehicles they are now named Large Goods Vehicles. HGV Class 1 (Artics); is now called LGV Category C+E, HGV Classes 2 & 3 (Rigids); is now called LGV Category C. 7.5 Tonne lorry; is now called Category C1 (Minimum age 18 years)

Question? If I am over 18 years of age do I need to take a Category C1 (7.5 tonner) test before taking a Category C (Class II) test?

Answer. No. If you are 18 or over you can skip Category CI (7.5 Tonner) and go directly to Category C (Class II), the course costs and difficulty levels are the same and you will end up with two licence categories for the price of one.
