Hi All,

I am looking at potentially doing my Cat C LGV and I have a few questions about it.

1) Will I need a CPC? I won't be driving commercially, its just so I can hire a horsebox or eventually buy my own without the weight restrictions as I am on a B Licence at the moment.

2) Will I be able to tow a trailer with my car on it?

3) Was it really expensive? I am looking at getting a few quotes near me but I don't want to just yet incase they don't leave me alone! (I need to save up for this).

Any other Info greatly appriciated :D

My Knowledge is based on my son doing it a couple of years ago:
1) No CPC required if not driving commercially.
2) No you won't be able to tow a trailer.
3) It cost about £1000 including the medical etc and 4 days training with test on 5th day.

Thank you! That was very helpful :D

I so want to be able to drive a wagon.. Is that bad? (Its a height thing, I am only 5ft 3!)
