  Learn How to Drive a Minibus!  

Many teachers and outdoor activity instructors will be asked to drive minibuses as part of their work.

Unfortunately all drivers who passed the car driving test after January 1997 can, legally, only drive small minibuses and cannot do so as part of their paid employment. In order to drive a larger minibus as part of their work drivers must pass the D1PCV Driving Test.

Why should you learn to drive a minibus now?

  • With education budgets being slashed many schools and colleges cannot afford to train their staff to drive minibuses.

  • Arriving for interview with the D1 PCV licence will make you more attractive to your prospective employer.

  • As soon as you start work you will be able to take your students on field trips, sports events and other outdoor activities.


What do you have to do?

  • You must be at least 21 years old and hold a full car licence.

  • You need to pass a vocational medical, apply for a provisional D1 licence, pass a theory test and a hazard perception test and train for and pass the practical test.

  • Contact us today on 01752 846600 or by email at info@trssl.co.uk and we will guide you through the complete process.


How much will it cost?

  • The complete process including medical, theory and hazard perception tests and practical training and test can be achieved for less than 1000.

  • It’s always worth asking your new employer if they would contribute towards the cost of your training.


How long will it take?

  • Passing the medical, theory and hazard perception tests is dependant on your personal motivation but should not take more than a few weeks.

  • The practical training and test is normally a four day course.
