What permits do I need to carry cranes
The cranes are lifting machines that are composed of a hole mounted on a rotating vertical axis and used to lift weights, distribute loads in space and take them from one point to another. As for the driving of any type of vehicle, in order to be able to carry cranes it is mandatory to obtain the appropriate driving permits . If you want to know specifically what permits you need to carry cranes, pay attention to the following article, where we explain it in detail.
Driving license type C1
The driving license type C1 is indicated to carry cars whose Maximum Authorized Mass (MMA) oscillates between 3, 5000 kg and 7, 500 kg . This type of vehicle must have a maximum of 9 seats, including that of the driver, and may carry a towed trailer with a maximum authorized mass not exceeding 750 kg.
As for the requirements to obtain the driver's license, we find:
- Be in possession of the class B permit in force.
- Be at least 18 years old
- Overcoming tests such as a specific theoretical exam, a maneuver test and a circulation test.
It is also important to take into account that obtaining the C1 permit implies the granting of the BTP authorization (carnet B Priority Transport) but not the granting of the A1 and A permits.
Driving license type C
The driving license type C, unlike the previous one, is indicated for driving cars whose Maximum Authorized Mass (MMA) exceeds the 3, 500 kg weight . On the other hand, it shares the characteristics that the vehicle must have a maximum of 9 seats, including that of the driver and the possibility of carrying a trailer of MMA up to 750 kg.
Likewise, it is essential to meet the following requirements to obtain the type C permit:
- Be in possession of type B permit in force.
- Be at least 21 years old
- Pass a specific theoretical exam, a maneuver test and a circulation test.
In this case, obtaining the C permit does not imply the granting of the A1 and A permits, but the granting of the C1 card and the BTP authorization.
Other requirements to obtain a driving license
In addition to the tests indicated above, in order to obtain the appropriate permit to carry cranes as well as to renew it, it will be strictly necessary to be in possession of a psychophysical aptitude report issued by an authorized Medical Center. In it, general medical tests must be passed, as well as an ophthalmological and auditory review and the corresponding psychological tests.
