PCV D1+E Course (Minibus & Trailer)

PCV D1+E Training Courses


The PCV D1+E licence is for drivers of vehicles with 9 to 16 passenger seats, such as a minibus, who wish to drive the vehicle and tow a large trailer.

The PCV D1+E licence is for drivers who already have the PCV D1 entitlement but wish to use this to tow. Minibus and trailer training takes 2-5 days depending on your level of experience and ability. Our PCV D1+E training fleet are modified with reversing cameras and additional mirrors, for easy training.



Minibus towing training is available at all of our sites using our equipment. Courses are available six days a week (Monday to Saturday) at our Hampshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire driver training centres. Training takes place at one of our locations in our vehicles that are to DVSA standard.


Course Aim

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


Elements Covered

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

Upon Completion

Once you’ve passed your minibus driving test, the DVSA will send you an updated driver’s licence with the D1+E 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 if you haven’t already. CPC courses are also available at Trailer Training UK centres.
