    What are the types of licence code?

The licence code refers to the type of driver's licence that you wish to obtain. It defines what type of motor vehicle you will be allowed to drive.

Unfortunately, both old and new licence codes are still in use, so to simply things a little, we've listed the most commonly used types of licence code below:

  • Licence Code A / code 1: motor cycle 
  • Licence Code B / code 2 / code 8: light motor vehicle (car, minibus, bus or goods vehicle not exceeding 3500 kgs) 
  • Licence Code C/E / code 3 / code 10 / code 14: heavy motor vehicle (truck, bus etc exceeding 3500 kgs)
