This course is designed for those who wish to obtain the category D1 (usually applies to those that passed their test post-January 1997) which will enable them to drive a minibus over 3.5 tonnes.
Candidates will complete an initial 45-minute driving assessment which will determine how many days training the instructor thinks would be required before the candidate would be in a position to successfully complete their test.
This course is suited to those who are required to drive a minibus for schools and academies, etc. On successful completion of this course, drivers will no longer be restricted to the size/weight of minibus that they are able to drive and will also be able to drive a minibus abroad.
Once the category is obtained, we ask that revalidation training is undertaken every 3 years.
Duration: 3-5 days
Price: dependent upon assessment (includes the cost and booking administration of the D1 test with the DVLA)
Group size: Maximum of 2 people
Certification expiry: 3 years
