PCV LICENCE TYPE D PREPARATION
Want to get behind the wheel of a large passenger carrying vehicle (PCV) such as a bus or coach? Then you will need to qualify for a PCV D licence.
This is the ideal next step if you already have a PCV D1 licence and want to expand your driving horizons beyond minibuses. Once qualified you will be able to drive vehicles weighing up to 10.2 tonnes, which includes single and double decker buses, giving you the ability to pursue this time-honoured career in any part of the UK.
What will PCV D training prepare me for?
If you train with HGV PCV Training then you will be prepared to take both the theory test and the practical exam. You will need to pass both in order to get your PCV D licence.
You will also need to complete a basic medical examination to be eligible, and must hold a Public Service Vehicle (PSV) operator licence, which is a legal requirement for anyone who wants to drive a passenger carrying vehicle in return for payment of any kind in the UK.
We will even be able to help you apply for your provisional licence, meaning that you can start your training with all of the administration under control.
Why should I train for a PCV D licence?
Simply put, the best reason to get a PCV D licence is that once you are qualified, you will be able to apply for driving jobs with a huge range of organisations nationwide.
Starting salaries for professional bus and coach drivers are impressive and you will be able to enter a rewarding career with a consistently strong demand from employers.
