The PCV D1 licence is for drivers of vehicles with 9 to 16 passenger seats, such as minibuses.

Having a PCV D1 licence is necessary for drivers who passed their car test after 1st January 1997, or need to get the 101 restriction removed. Minibus training takes 2 to 3 days depending on your experience. Our PCV D1 training fleet are modified with reversing cameras and additional mirrors, for easy training.

 

Availability

Minibus driver training is available at all of our sites using our equipment or on your site using your facilities and equipment. Courses are available six days a week (Monday to Saturday) at our Hampshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire driver training centres.

 

Course Aim

The aim is to provide you with the theoretical and practical knowledge to safely drive a minibus with passengers, and to qualify you for the PCV D1 licence.

 

Elements Covered

  • Safety Checks and Compliance
  • Passenger Carrying Requirements
  • Reversing and Manoeuvring Techniques
  • Driving in Varying Road Conditions, Traffic and on Motorways
  • Uphill, Downhill and Angled Starts

 

Upon Completion

Once you’ve passed your minibus driving test, the DVSA will send you an updated driver’s licence with the D1 entitlement. Before starting work as a professional driver for hire or reward, you’re also required to undertake a Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) course, which is also available at Trailer Training UK centres.
