Why Minibus D1 Driver Training?
If you passed your driving test before January 1997, you will already have the D1 classification ‘grandfathered’ onto your driving licence. However, just because you are legally able to doesn’t mean you are ready to get behind the wheel of a minibus. Your nearest NxtGen approved driving instructor (ADI) can offer ad-hoc training even if you don’t need to pass an exam, giving you the confidence to get out on the open road.
Achieve your D1+E licence
It’s important to note that you cannot apply for your D1+E licence without passing the D1 test first.
Learning to drive a minibus and tow a trailer can take several days of training, depending on your level of driving experience. Once you obtain your D1+E licence you will be permitted to drive D1 category minibuses with a trailer of over 750kg maximum authorised mass (MAM). The combined MAM of both the minibus and the trailer cannot exceed 12,000kg.
