H licence


Recommended Posts

Having just done a c license and my bike license, the h license was a joke. 20 mins of an examiner walking beside you,  turning left, right, stopping, reversing round a corner followed by 3 Highway Code questions. No wonder any can teach it

Yeah worth a try thanks. To be honest I would just like the equipment and I could teach myself I know what they do on the  test and what is expected. I spoke with a ex trainer few years back and said if your paying anymore then couple hundred pounds doing cat H and G tests your getting ripped off. He put a load of people through  using plant machinery which was road legal but stopped doing it and did try and persuade him to help but nothing as doing other stuff now.

Your problem will come getting insurance, you can be added to someone else's who owns and drives a class H, but as a learner you are unlikely to get insurance to drive on a public highway.
I taught a friend to drive my CVRT, from Europe as a learner on my insurance, cost about £50 for a week.

Yeah that's when your in a catch 22 and wouldn't have a problem paying any administration costs like that but alot of farmers don't want to risk their machines which I can understand to a point. Always keeping my eyes open and never know something may come up.

Yeah have tried this route with plant companys but is finding equipment that is road legal. I can rent equipment but none of  it road legal and they won't help you to make it legal  not interested but haven't given up just yet. 

it is exempt from being road legal for the test, as the H licence is legally required in certain instances, ie unloading and loading tracked plant where it involves crossing or travelling roadways

I have asked about this and was told it has to have a registration plate, insurance, and tax if applicable because you could go on the road. I know some people have stated they never went on a road but you can't guarantee that.

Just a slight off-set on this topic.  If someone is looking for a vehicle to start providing training for the H Licence, how about using on of these?

The website says that they can be road registered.

As the vehicle is 'steered by tracks',  does it matter whether that is by levers or 'motorcycle handlebars'.

I'm sure these would be legal.

When I did my h it was in an Argocat which had handlebars... but I know Nick told me they weren’t allowed to use it any more, so they sold it and brought a huge tractor thing

I thought as long as it had tracks it was OK
