There is plenty of work for truck drivers, and it will not diminish in the coming years.
A truck, lorry or truck is a vehicle weighing more than 3,500 kg. To drive the vehicle, you need truck license C.
For an RV of the same weight, you also need driver’s license C.
Truck driving license = C driving license = truck driving license = C driving license = major driving license
A truck driver’s license is also called a “major driver’s license. But the license for a light truck (C1 driver’s license) or bus (D driver’s license) also fall under the heading of “major driving license.
The truck C license exists in two versions:
C driving license with code 95: for truck drivers
C driving license without code 95: for people who only use the truck privately
Code 95 is the same as professional competence. In special cases, exemption from Code 95 is possible.
Different truck, different driver’s license
In addition to driver’s license C, there are other licenses for trucks:
driving license CE: for a truck combination between 3,500 and 50,000 kg, where the trailer weighs more than 750 kg.
The CE driver’s license builds on the C driver’s license.
LHV certificate: for long heavy vehicles (LHV, max. 25.5 meters long).
The cerficate is an addition to driving license CE with code 95.
C1 driving license: for light trucks and most motor homes, weighing between 3500 and 7500 kg
C1E driving license: for a light truck combination of up to 12000 kg
The CBR provides more information on the different truck driving licenses.
What are you allowed to do with a truck C license?
With a truck license C, you may drive:
a truck over 3500 kg without a trailer
a truck with a trailer weighing up to 750 kg.
a motorhome over 3500 kg without a trailer
a light truck: you automatically get driving license C1 as well
A tractor: you automatically get driver’s license T as well
You are not allowed to drive a heavy truck combination with it. For that, you need driving license CE or C1E (lighter combinations).
Driving license CE builds on driving license C.
Get C driving license with code 95
To get your C driver’s license with Code 95, you must be at least 18 years old and have your B driver’s license.
If you are taking an MBO driver education course, you may be exempt from this.
As a future professional driver, you must take six exams for the truck driver’s license:
Theory exam RVM1-C: for this we have the truck theory course
Theory exam VM2-C: for this we have the truck theory course
Theory exam VM3-C: for this we have the truck theory course
practical exam C: part of the truck driving lessons package
practical test of professional competence: practical test
practical test of professional competence: confined terrain test
A good result on the exams is not enough to apply for your driver’s license.
You must also fill out health statements and undergo a medical examination.
The medical examination for a large driver’s license is more stringent than that for other licenses.
