WHAT DOES HEAVY GOODS VEHICLE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

heavy goods vehicle

Large goods vehicle

A large goods vehicle, is the European Union term for any truck with a gross combination mass of over 3,500 kilograms. Sub-category N2 is used for vehicles between 3,500 kilograms and 12,000 kilograms and N3 for all goods vehicles over 12,000 kilograms as defined in Directive 2001/116/EC. The term medium goods vehicle is used within parts of the UK government to refer to goods vehicles of between 3.5 and 7.5 tonnes which according to the EU are also 'large goods vehicles'. Commercial carrier vehicles of under 3,500 kilograms are referred to as Light commercial vehicles and come into category N1. Confusingly though, parts of the UK government refer to these as 'Light Goods Vehicles', with the term 'LGV' appearing on tax disks for these smaller vehicles. Tax discs use the term 'HGV' for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes.
