Category B+E (Car & trailer license)
This is the most basic of licenses for anyone looking to transport horses, using a mobile horsebox or trailer, and car or van.
This horsebox licence allows you to transport horses that are owned by yourself and others competently and safely.
It can be completed in three days, and we supply all of the tools and equipment needed to pass this course – minus the horse!
Category C1 (7.5-tonne license)
The Cat C1 involves a larger but easier vehicle to train in than the B+E because the vehicle is a single unit and handles more like a car.
This license enables you to drive a fully loaded vehicle up to 7.5 tonnes, including horses of any ownership type and takes 5 days.
If you received your car license before ’97, you might have this license already, so may just need some practice before you get started.
Category C (Above 7.5-tonne license)
This is the largest, most popular horsebox licence from HGVTN, as it allows you to drive over 7.5T (more than the Cat C1).
The Cat C license gives drivers the ultimate flexibility – allowing you to carry more than one horse.
This option still only takes 5 days but futureproofs your career in equine transport – making it a better option for some.

Frequently Asked Questions
If I get a Cat C horsebox license, what else can I drive?
Holders of Cat C licences can legally drive any vehicles over 7.5 tonnes with a rigid base if they do not exceed 32 tonnes.
Can I get a quote for horsebox training before I start?
As horsebox training is bespoke, so HGVTN can’t give accurate quotes without extra information from the prospective horsebox license holder.
What car is best for towing a horse trailer?
SUVs, pick-ups, and estate cars will likely have a higher maximum towing weight – ideal for those looking to tow a horse trailer.
How long will horsebox training take?
Training time will depend on how much experience you have and, as such, can vary widely. It can take between 3 days and 5 days on average.
Will HGV Training Network finance options help me study?
HGVTN Finance options remove the worry of missed paychecks and let you focus on retraining and earning – saving you lots of stress.
