With so many workforces relying on skip lorries in their daily work, finding the right insurance for this necessity is essential. Your skip lorry may be seen as a niche vehicle to insure by most, but that doesn’t mean the right cover isn’t out there. 

At One Sure, we’ve been leading the way as a specialist insurance broker since we started over a decade ago. With our insurance know-how and team of experts, we’ll do all the hard work insuring your skip lorry, so you can focus on your job.

What licence do you need to drive a skip lorry?

To drive a skip you need a valid Category C or Category C+E driving licence, depending on the weight and size of the vehicle. The specific licence requirements vary depending on the type of skip lorry and its weight capacity. 

Category C Licence: A Category C licence allows you to drive rigid vehicles weighing over 3,500 kilograms (3.5 tonnes). This licence is generally required for smaller skip lorries. 

Category C+E Licence: If you plan to drive a skip lorry with a larger weight capacity or one that has a trailer attached, you would need a Category C+E licence. This licence covers vehicles over 3,500 kilograms (3.5 tonnes) with a trailer exceeding 750 kilograms. 

Additionally, you may also need a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) if you’re using the skip lorry for commercial purposes. The CPC is a qualification that ensures professional drivers meet specific standards for road safety and working hours.
