    Note that there are some specific restrictions, like age and what current licence you hold.

    Yes you must have a B licence first then sit the theory test for C and get a provisional licence, then do the driving test on C and when you pass it you can apply straight away for your EC (ARTIC) licence. There is no restriction on the time you must wait between taking the rigid and arctic driving tests just have some lessons and remember to include the CPC as part of the rigid test otherwise you wont be able to drive for a living. This cpc part is straightforward too. Good luck
