Minibus

Get started on your journey today with Ian Markwick driver training Nottingham!

Train in our Ford Transit Category D1 minibus!

If you passed your car test before 01.01.1997:

You also got entitlement for PCV category D1 which allows you to drive a minibus for private use (voluntary groups or clubs) and you will have the restriction on code 101 on your licence to prove this. However, to drive commercially you will still need to complete your driver CPC.

If you passed your car test after 01.01.1997:

You will have the entitlement to drive vehicles with up to eight seats. If you wish to gain your PCV category D1 licence or need to lift the code 101 “Not for hire or reward” restriction, you will have to follow the same route to Obtaining your licence steps 1 – 9 as LGV drivers do but you can exclude step 5.

Ian carries out all training in his Ford Transit minibus to prepare you for driving in the future!

The training is carried out in a Ford Transit minibus, so you will be learning in a clean, passenger transport specification vehicle that will not only be driver friendly for your training and test but will also prepare you well for your minibus driving in the future. This course consists of two full days of training, with the test on the third day. The Driver CPC module 4 course and the test can run concurrently with the practical driver training course (or before or after), in just the same way as the LGV courses are conducted.

Medical icon

So, you want to be a PCV driver?

Step 1) You need a medical assessment before you can get behind the wheel

You need a D4 medical form completed by a doctor. You can go to any doctor for this but we recommend Cotswold Medicals, who charge less than most GPs and have locations up and down the country.

If you are local to Nottingham, then I can also recommend Dr M Clamp on 07802 850084, who is based in Colwick and is absolutely brilliant.

Send your completed medical form, together with your plastic driving license, to the DVLA at Swansea (it takes between 4 days - 4 weeks for your license to be processed – depending on how busy the DVLA are).

Now let's get you started on the road to success!
