PCV PSV Driver training - CAT D
Take your practical test at our own private test centre. Full driver cpc training available. Training on a Mercedes touring coach - not a clapped out old banger! FREE B+B in a local village pub for our customers travelling more than 70 miles.
PSV/PCV (CAT D) Before you can get on with your PCV bus driver training you will need to hold a provisional PCV (CAT D) licence. The first job is to have a medical. You can have your medical at our training centre on a Saturday morning at our Mansfield centre. The fee is £85 included in our Starter Pack. Please call to arrange. Peterborough candidates will use our local doctor. The forms you will need will be waiting for you when you arrive. If you are going to use your own doctor, order D2 pack from www.gov.uk/dvla/forms. Either way, the medical form, licence application and car licence will then go to Swansea for your provisional entitlement to be added. You will normally receive your CAT D provisional licence within a few days; you should then call us to arrange your PCV theory training and test. The theory training takes place in both our training centres and your theory test will be arranged at a DSA centre to suit you. The pass rate for those following this route is almost 100%. The "Starter Pack" includes your medical, online theory training, classroom theory training and both theory tests arranged at a DSA test centre local to you. Total cost of the whole package is £200 - a saving of £75. Your bus driver training course will normally be arranged to start a couple of weeks after your theory test. The course is normally 4 days duration with the test taken during the fifth day.
All our training is conducted on a 1 to 1 basis so you get individual tuition with no cab sharing as is the norm.
Practical PCV tests are taken at our own test centre at Mansfield Woodhouse. This was the very first private test centre in the UK; it has to be better to train and test here rather than a busy city. We have a large number of prebooked tests to minimise waiting time. Peterborough candidates will be tested at Peterborough test centre.
You have a choice of training vehicle. The first is a Mercedes Solera. It's 10 metres long - so it's big enough to be interesting without being too much of a handful! In common with all our vehicles, it's well maintained and easy to drive. We also offer a fully automatic bus - as used by Stagecoach - for training. You will be allocated the next available vehicle for your training unless you state a preference at the time of booking. Training and passing your test on an automatic still gives you a full manual bus licence provided you already hold a full manual car licence.
To drive professionally you will also need driver cpc.
