This package includes:
By obtaining a D1 category on your licence you will be able to drive a minibus. The DVSA define this as vehicles with:
Once you have applied for a provisional licence, completed a medical, sat and passed your theory tests and completed your practical driver training and test, you will be legally able to drive a minibus.
If you passed your category B car licence before 1st January 1997 you would benefit from acquired rights (also known as grandfather rights). This means that you will already have the D1 entitlement added to your licence. However, there is a restriction to this, called a 101 placed on the licence which means that you are not able to drive a D1 vehicle (minibus) for hire and reward (meaning for profit). You can drive a minibus of up to 17 seats for private use but if you wish to drive a minibus for hire and reward, meaning you will be paid to drive the vehicle you will need to sit and pass the D1 minibus tests.
If you passed your car (B+E) test after January 1997 you will need to take the relevant tests to obtain the category D1 on your licence.
If you passed your category B licence after January 1997 you would need to follow the steps below to obtain your category D1 licence:
If you intend to drive a D1 vehicle (minibus) for hire and reward, for instance a private taxi you will need to ensure that you sit both module 2 and module 4 CPC.
You can attend one of our fully equipped depots based in Portsmouth, Southampton, Worthing and Reading.
I have just completed my HGV Class 1 and John Hutchings did my final two days training. He is highly professional and knowledgeable. I am sure it was due to his training that I was successful . I would highly recommend John to anyone wishing to pass their training. I would also like to thank Jane from the Portsmouth branch for her excellent training that saw me through my HGV Class 2 back in September last year.
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
4 years ago. I passed my C1 with 2 Start. I had Robin as my instructor. He was very clear in his instruction and encouragement to help me achieve my pass certificate. Recently, I returned to 2 Start to obtain my C+E entitlement. I booked the training with Jack who was gracious enough to provide Robin as my instructor once again. Between Jack and Robin, They both made my training experience easy to apply myself to. So if you're looking for the Number 1 training provider, Look no further. Everyone on the 2 Start team are very friendly, professional and helpful. 10/10.
