Absolutely NOTHING! Its just a name change. We don't actually know why they changed the name, but it was changed in 1992. LGV is the new name for HGV, instead of Heavy Goods Vehicles they are now named Large Goods Vehicles. HGV Class 1 (Artics); is now called LGV Category C+E. HGV Classes 2 & 3 (Rigids); is now called LGV Category C and 7.5 Ton lorry; is now called Category C1

Question? Is there a compulsory waiting period between taking a Category C (Class II) and a Category C+E (Class I)?
Answer. No! Providing you are aged 18 years or over, as soon as you have passed your Category C (Class II) course you will need to send your Provisional licence along with your pass certificate to DVLA, they will update your licence and return it, as soon as it is returned you can take your Category C+E (Class I).
