Our Dorset minibus training opportunities
The Category D1 licence is a requirement for everyone who wants to drive a minibus with up to 17 seats – including the driver’s seat – and earn an income from it. Our independent school offers the number one minibus training Dorset has available.
You will first need to pass a medical exam, which consists of a brief health check on your eyesight and history of any illnesses. This will then need to be sent to the DVLA along with your current licence. While you wait for it to be returned, you can start your minibus training in Dorset by studying for the theory test.
At Dorset Driver Training, you’ll get a tailor made learning experience that is based on your knowledge and unique needs. Our minibus training in Dorset is conducted on a one on one basis. Please note that you must have a manual car licence to book this course as the training is carried out on a manual vehicle.
The Dorset minibus training ends with the practical test. This will always be taken in the same vehicle that you have used during training. We recommend completing your training and taking your practical test on consecutive days. This helps to minimise the gaps and increase your success rate.
