Our patient instructors are fully qualified to provide minibus training.


We also offer advanced driving courses for those who passed prior to 1997 and already hold D1 entitlement but might have never actually driven a minibus, or simply need guidance.

If you currently hold a pre 1997 D1 101 licence and wish to remove the 101 restriction you must apply for provisional vocational D1 entitlement  in the same way as a post 1997 licence holder, you need to pass all the tests to obtain your vocational D1 licence.

We can also provide corporate fleet training and assessments for company vehicle drivers.

Please be aware that most candidates who are unsuccessful at the D1 test fail due to their general forward driving, not the reverse exercise. The standard of driving required is much higher than that of the standard learner car test.

Training is available 7 days per week from 0700 to 2200 subject to day light.

Qualifying process for category D1 entitlement.

To obtain a vocational D1 licence you must pass a medical and apply for provisional entitlement to drive a bus.  D D1 D1E
