Course Info

A category D1 minibus licence is required to drive a vehicle with between 9-16 passengers for hire or reward.

If you passed your test before 1st January 1997 you already hold the Category D1 entitlement but with the 101 restriction of ‘not for hire or reward’!

If you want the 101 restriction removed so that you can earn money driving a minibus then you will have to take a Category D1 driving test.

NOTE
Hire or reward encompasses any payment in cash or kind (or on behalf of) passengers which gives them a right to be carried.

If you passed your test after 1st January 1997 you do not have the Category D1 entitlement on your licence and you cannot drive a minibus with 9 passenger seats or more.

Are you a teacher?
If you are a teacher in the private sector at a non-charitable school, you will need a full ‘D1′ minibus licence.

If you are a teacher in the state sector and drive under the CBPS, the area can be very complex and grey.

If you drive during school hours it can be considered as for payment. This needs a full ‘D1′ licence.

If you drive out of school hours it may not, however you are still teaching/supervising/have care and control therefore acting as a teacher you may fall back to the previous ‘during school hours’. Claiming the concession will certainly bring you to the notice of the authorities, especially if an accident arose causing damage or injury with the obvious risk of prosecution.

Also, please check with your insurance company regarding the use of non – full ‘D1′ licence holders to see if cover will still be in force.
