PCV Category D1+E Minibus and Trailer Training
If you drive a minibus and are looking to carry extra luggage without losing passenger space than towing a trailer is the most practical option. The PCV Category D1+E licence entitlement also allows you to tow a horsebox or boat.
The current Category D1 Minibus Licence allows you to drive a minibus with up to 21 seats for commercial or business purposes.
PCV Category D1+E is an essential entitlement for anyone involved in driving minibuses for establishments such as schools, colleges and universities, youth clubs, guides, scouts, cadets, YMCA, churches or outdoor activity centres.
If your minibus is full of passengers there is often little room for luggage. A trailer solves this problem but you do need to take a training course and pass the category D1+E test before you can legally tow.
To qualify for D1+E training you are required to have passed the Category D test and have valid Category D1+E provisional entitlement stated on your paper licence.
Please be aware your provisional D1+E entitlement can expire. If you are aged 45 or over you will need to renew it with a medical after 5 years if you haven't passed your test.
If you need help or advice with licence entitlement, please call us on 01204 525454 and we'll be happy to assist.
The PCV Category D1+E test requires no theory test as you will have already taken this.
Training can be taken in our own executive Mercedes Sprinter and trailer or you can bring your own vehicle.
We offer fast track PCV Category D1+E training courses with first class tuition at the very best prices and highest pass rates.
