What Licence do I need to Drive a Cement Mixer?
The first step in getting a licence to drive a cement mixer is to first pass the DVLA test to get a Car Licence also known as Category B.
Once you have this you can apply for the Category C 7500kg (7.5 tonne) LGV or Large Goods Vehicle (formerly known as HGV) licence. This type of licence is sufficient to drive the rigid body cement mixers most widely used by ready mix concrete suppliers. The Category C licence is known as Class I.
To drive a more specialized articulated cement mixer lorry, or artic cement mixer, you need the next category of licence in addition to the category B and C licences. This is known as category E and covers vehicles with a weight of over 7.5 tonnes. Combined the C and E category licence is commonly referred to as Class II.
Certain age restrictions apply. To drive a Class I cement mixer lorry you need to be at least 18 years old and at least 21 to a drive Class II C & E artic cement mixer truck.
Armed with a Class II LGV C+E cement mixer licence you are qualified to drive any cement mixer truck on the road.
Getting a licence to drive a cement mixer can be done via short LGV courses offered by authorised training providers. Its possible to train for both the C and E categories one after the other. For more details go to the Training page.
