A PCV Licence or to put it simply, a bus licence, entitles you to drive a bus / coach or minibus. Job opportunities in this are great, with many firms offering over £550 a week to drive city-based buses. To gain your PCV Licence, you’ll need one of the following qualifications, which are based on the type and load capacity of the vehicle you want to drive:

Category ‘D1’ PCV Licence –the ‘D1’ licence is required to drive a minibus with a maximum of 16 seats on board. If you gained your car licence before 1997 you may have acquired rights to drive a D1 minibus – BUT you may be restricted to driving for non-profit only. This means that if your job requires you to drive a minibus (teacher, health worker etc), you will need to take your licence and test. Call us now for independent expert advice on the matter.

Category ‘D’ PCV Licence – the ‘D’ Licence is required to drive a full-size bus or coach that has over 16 seats. If you’re looking to become a full-time coach or bus driver, you’ll need to get the full ‘D’ Category on your licence. Once you gain your Cat ‘D’ PCV, you’ll also gain your ‘D1’ PCV too – this means you’ll be fully qualified to drive any type of bus / coach on the road!

The HGV Training Centre specialise in PCV Training, we have contracts with some of the largest training providers in the UK – and our bulk-booking powers mean that we can arrange training and testing at short notice and at several locations across the country. PCV drivers are becoming more sought after as less and less people chose to drive their cars. There are now more buses and coaches on Britain’s roads – and salaries are getting higher and higher.
