Minibus (D1) and Minibus & Trailer (D1+E)
We offer a driving assessment with a detailed debrief to give you an indication of how many training hours you are likely to need in advance of the DVSA Category D1/ D1+E Tests.
A minibus is between 9-16 passenger seats.
If you passed your car (B) driving test after 1st January 1997, then unless you have passed a further test you will more than likely need to do the D1 or D1+E test/s.
Rest assured, you can complete your training at your own pace and with complete confidence that you are being taught by an experienced professional.
In addition to your Part 1 theory test and Part 3 - practical driving test, professional drivers will be required to undertake the Part 2 test - case study and you can then go on to complete the Part 4 test - practical demonstration.
The Part 4 test involves the examiner asking you to perform daily walk round check, an immigration check and you will be asked 3 other knowledge questions.
With an on site reversing area, there is plenty of time and space to master the reverse at your own pace, without the need to travel, maximising your training time.
For further details go to the The Driving Test page.
Once you have completed your D1 - PCV test and received your licence, you are free to continue your training with a view to completing the D1+E test if you wish.
Here at Olly's Driver Training, the hours that we specify for training are exactly that, the time for test is in addition to the training hours, but included in your individual course fee.
So, a 10 hour course would be one to one training with the instructor for 10 hours and then the time on test, including return to base.
We are pleased to be able to offer discounts for all 999 / Emergency Services, NHS & Armed forces for all LGV/ HGV Courses. Please make sure you make it clear when booking.
