D1 License Acquisition

The D1 minibus test is conducted by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) and you will have to complete a medical, theory tests and a practical test. Minibus Training and Safety Ltd will ensure you know all the aspects of up to date general driving skills and all the required manoeuvres. We know that everyone learns differently and as such adapt our courses to each individual.

The D1 Qualification Process;


1) Medical Examination.

Your doctor or a Medical centre will complete your D4 medical form.

It may be worth a phone call to find the best price in your area.

4) Practical training.

"Training was great, learnt loads. Made me more aware of my driving and how I could improve."

"I looked around for MIDAS Training for staff to be safe to drive our new minibus and also to accompany residents on outings. I luckily found this wonderful company on the internet and Chris was the only person to bother ringing me back. He arrived and put my staff at ease and he was an excellent teacher with years of experience and helped everyone ease their fears of doing a small driving test. Everyone passed and I would recommend this company. We are opening 4 more homes this year and we shall be using Chris - Thank you from a very satisfied customer"
