Additional Information

What vehicle can I drive with a D1+E category added to my licence?

First you will need to obtain the D1 category on your licence.  Once you have this you can then apply for the D1+E licence meaning you can drive D1 category vehicles with a trailer over 750kg MAM (maximum authorised mass). The combined MAM of both cannot exceed 12,000kg.?

How do I obtain my D1+E licence?

If you passed your category B licence after January 1997 you would need to follow the steps below to obtain your category D1+E licence:

Apply for the provisional entitlement using form D2, we can supply this to you, or you can get one online from the DVSA here: Order DVLA forms – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

Apply for and attend a medical using the form D4, again we can help you to book this part of the process and help you with the forms.

Attend and pass the theory tests required.  There are 2 if you wish to drive a D1+E vehicle privately.  If you want to drive a D1+E vehicle (minibus & trailer) for hire and reward you will need to complete a third theory test which is the CPC Module 2 case study theory test.

Once you have passed your theory you are ready for your practical driver training. You will be taught by one of our highly skilled instructors.  You will learn how to drive the vehicle safely on the road and practice the manoeuvres such as coupling and uncoupling the trailer.

When you are ready you will then sit your DVSA practical driving test.

If you pass your D1+E practical test and you wish you drive a minibus for hire and reward then you will need to take a further practical test which is the Module 4 CPC. This is a show me tell me practical where you are required to demonstrate your knowledge and ability on areas such as vehicle safety, securing loads and your ability to manage emergency situations.??

Where can I complete my training?

You can attend one of our fully equipped depots based in Portsmouth, Southampton, Worthing and Reading.

I done my CPC at the Worthing branch yesterday (23rd December 2020) and I am so pleased of the way the teaching was done. At age instructor was extremely helpful and did very well asking all students to know their knowledge on items before he talked about them. He also helped me when I made a simple silly mistake, he told me what I did wrong and showed me what how to do it correctly in my test. Which in total managed to get me to pass my MOD 4 CPC first time! I look forward to seeing you in February for my driving course and test
