PCV D1 Course (Minibus)

PCV D1 Minibus Training Courses

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, so that they are able to drive vehicle of 9- 16 seats. Minibus training takes 2-5 days depending on your level
of experience and ability. Our PCV D1 training fleet are modified with reversing cameras and additional mirrors, for easy training. Before you are able to undertake any proactical driver training in this category you must first have
completed a medical assessment, provisional application and theory tests. These can all be arranged personally or we offer packages where we can book everything for you. Please see our packages for more details.

Availability

Minibus driver 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.

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
