UK law now permits Category B driving licence holders to drive an alternatively-fuelled vehicle weighing up to 4.25 tonnes. The vehicle must not be driven outside of Great Britain. The driver must have completed a minimum of 5 hours training and it must be used for the transportation of goods with no trailer.
The AFV course is a legal requirement for van drivers who wish to take advantage of the legislation introduced in 2018. This allows holders of Category B driving licences normally restricted to vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes to drive vans of up to 4.25 tonnes if they operate by an alternative fuel as AFVs can have an increased kerb weight compared with their conventionally fuelled counterparts.
The rules cover vans powered by electricity, hydrogen, natural gas, biogas, or a combination of hydrogen and electricity.

Why Choose Us
"Pleasure to do my C1 lessons with David. It was good to learn in a truck from a very knowledgeable and down to earth instructor that made me feel at ease. Also very affordable prices and local to me in Glasgow so would highly recommend to anyone needing to learn their C1 or any other Class Licence. Even better that I passed my test first time. Thank you David for all your help."
