Minibus Training in Surrey
Driving a minibus with 9-16 passenger seats requires a category D1 entitlement on your licence. If you plan to drive a minibus with a trailer exceeding 750kgs, you'll need a D1E entitlement. Furthermore, driving a minibus for hire and reward necessitates additional Driver CPC training. While this might seem daunting, EP Training is here to help.
We have many years of experience in delivering practical D1 training, and our instructors are DSA approved. All your training will take place at our modern, approved facilities in Great Bookham using our modern, well-maintained training vehicles. Here, you'll learn everything you need to know for your practical test, which will take place at the DSA test centre in Guildford.
Upon completion of your Initial Driver CPC (if required as part of your training), you'll receive a Driver Qualification Card valid for 5 years. After this, you'll need to undertake a further 35 hours of Periodic training. EP Training is a leading provider of both Initial and Periodic Driver CPC courses.
At EP Training, we provide comprehensive support to help you acquire your minibus licence. We can arrange your medical and/or your D1 practical driving test at no extra cost. We can also assist you in ordering additional training books and publications if needed.
If you need a minibus refresher course, we offer tailored courses to meet your specific requirements.
D1 Restriction Code 101
If you passed your category B (car) test before 1st January 1997, you might already have a D1 entitlement on your licence, which allows you to drive a minibus without additional training. However, if your licence carries a restriction code 101, this means that you'll need to undertake Driver CPC training to drive a minibus for hire or reward.
Whether you're just starting or need to refresh your skills, EP Training is here to guide you through the process. Contact us for more information, or book your training online today.
