This Silver 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.
It’s so nice In these difficult times to be able to go somewhere and feel welcome and not rushed or pushed away. Staff very friendly from first message about the course. Answered all questions quickly. My instructor had plenty of time to help me be test ready. Made the environment a happy place to be and easy to get on with while keeping it professional. Would highly recommend this company.
Both the office staff at original point of contact and the instructors at the Worthing depot have been faultless. From my initial contact through to my test and subsequent retest, everyone has been helpful and informative. The instructors were calm, collected, supportive and encouraging throughout, even after, through my own stupidity, I failed the test on my first try. I can thoroughly recommend 2 Start and I will definitely use them again.
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.
