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.
I have just finished my 5 day CPC course with 2 Start Training. The trainer, Nicky Hanson was excellent, fully engaged the whole class and was very knowledgeable, informative and helped make the week fly by. I have nothing but praise for Nicky and 2 Start as a company. From my initial enquiry with Jack at their Portsmouth office to today, they have been excellent, helpful and very professional. Great job guys!
I can’t thank 2 Start enough. The counterbalance course was quick and easy to find via the website and the training provided at the Portsmouth branch was spot on. The team are very friendly and helpful throughout
Enjoyed my 5 day Lgv class 2 driving course at Romsey, my instructor was Tim, he makes you feel relaxed and gives you confidence, with a good sense of humor very professional, I passed my driving test first time because of this, many thanks Tim ?
