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.

A great school with friendly and experienced staff. Good range of vehicles for HGV and FLT training. Nice rooms for classroom based training.
10/10. Absolutely amazing team at 2 Start from booking and information with Tim, to driver training with Mark at Worthing. Tailored lessons to suit any experience level. I Will be recommending to anyone that wants training. Thank you guys.
Brilliant Training school, from the moment I entered the building on Monday till the day I left Friday it felt very welcoming and friendly. what I love about 2 start Romsey is the friendliness and professionalism at the same time. you have a proper good laugh and also learn an awful lot at the same time! (which is a quality most instructors do not possess) I had Tim from Romsey who was super helpful and joyful all the time which made the whole experience very pleasurable. will defiantly come back to do HGV C+E. Thanks for the great week!!!!
