Find out more about our bus and coach driver training.
Basic Automobile License (Class / category D) may be issued to a person 18 years of age and older for all types of passenger carrying vehicles.
There is no difference you will receive the licence category D, once passed. The only difference is the vehicle; buses are generally used on local routes with coaches being used for long distances.
You can drive any bus / coach with more than 8 passenger seats (with a trailer up to 750kg). If you pass your test in a category D vehicle you will automatically get the D1 licence to drive minibuses.
The main elements you would need to complete are: Medical, hazard perception theory test, multiple choice theory test and practical driving test. To then drive commercially you would also need to complete the Module 2 Initial CPC theory test and Module 4 Practical CPC test.
If you successfully pass each of the stages first time the duration is between 6 – 8 weeks. The practical aspect of your training will be over 5 days, Monday – Friday. Your practical module 4 can also be booked within this week as long as you have passed your module 2 initial CPC.
Category D1 is for minibuses up to 16 passenger seats. A category D licence is for bus and coaches. If you pass your test in a category D vehicle you will automatically get the D1 licence as well.
