The Ultimate package includes the following:
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 used 2 Start Training in Worthing to complete my Cat C (Class 2) license. Clint and Mark were my instructors and were extremely professional, very knowledgeable and always willing to help and answer questions. They went above and beyond in all aspects and made sure that I was happy with everything before moving on to learn new things and completing my practical. Thank you 2 Start Training and a huge thank you to Clint and Mark??
I have just completed my CPC renewal and must say the course was fantastic! I prefer courses where you are in the classroom as they are easier to interact with coursemates on, however, that said, I could not fault the lesson delivery. I am exceptionally pleased that I chose this company to renew my CPC and I will be back in 5 years for my next renewal, unless I get chance to do further training in the meantime. I can not recommend 2Start training highly enough. Nothing was a problem and all the staff I had the pleasure of dealing with showed the exceptional professionalism of this company. 5 stars is all I can give but would definitely give more if there was the option. Thanks again for this week. Adam Paley
Derek was fantastic and training was exactly as required
