Each day on this course consists of a 4 hour lesson and, on the day of your test, you will have at least one hour training before taking your test. Your minibus training in Dorset will consist of verbal and practical training to improve your general driving skills, ensuring they’re up to DVSA standard.

Additionally, we will teach you situations and manoeuvres that are likely to be on your test along with the ‘show me/tell me’ questions asked at the beginning. Our aim with our Dorset minibus training is to provide a comprehensive course to ensure you are fully prepared for your test and completely safe on the road.

Application Process

There are 3 main points to focus on when beginning this course with Dorset Driver Training. First, you must pass a PCV/LGV medical exam which consists of a brief health check on your eyesight, any existing illnesses, and more. You can either do this with your GP or we can arrange the medical exam with our practitioner, where we can also provide a D4 medical application form.

After passing the medical exam, the D4 medical form must be sent along with an application for a provisional C1 licence and your current driving licence to DVLA. While you are waiting for your licence to be returned, it is recommended that you start studying for the theory test.

With minibus training, Dorset students will find the theory test consists of two parts, theoretical questions and hazard perception. We can help by offering you a range of materials because, as with any test, practice makes perfect.
