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.

2) Apply for your provisional PCV licence.

Send your D4 form and D2 license acquisition form along with your driving license to the DVLA to receive your provisional entitlement. Supply us with a postal address and we will send both forms to you.

3) Theory Tests.

Study and pass your Multiple Choice theory test and Hazard Perception test.

4) Practical training.

Complete the necessary number of hours training and take your D1 minibus reverse test & driving test. These are now two seperate tests and the reverse test must be passed before you can take the practical driving test.

5) Obtain D1 entitlement on license.

CPC initial tests can now be taken if required.
