Buses / Coaches - Cat D PCV


We will post you a free application pack, this includes everything you need to get started and the relevant DVLA application forms. The pack will help you to complete the medical, provisional application, and theory tests including an online learning portal.

We offer an optional 30 minute free driving assessment. Once you have completed the theory test we invite you to visit one of our sites and find out more about us, the course and have a go. This will help you decide which is the best course duration for you. 

We supply easy to drive new vehicles and we arrange the test for you. We have some standard set courses with excellent pass rates to choose from or you can arrange training lesson by lesson. 

We offer training courses and tests in Shrewsbury, Telford, Wrexham and Wolverhampton. Lessons are available weekdays or weekends and we have access to hundreds of tests at our own private DVSA testing sites. 

  • The 90 minute Cat D test will include road driving, reversing and some safety questions. The minimum age is 18 and you must hold a UK driving licence. 
  • 4 Day Standard Course - Recommended for most people, this is our most popular option. 

If you will be driving professionally you will need a Driver CPC Module 2 Case Studies Test scheduled at the same time as your theory tests and Module 4 Safety and Security Practical Training and Test, completed in-house with us and can be scheduled alongside the Cat D course.  

Low rate finance packages available to spread the costs. T&C's apply. 

If you would like us to post you a free application pack we will need your name and address. If you would like any more information or to discuss course or free assessment dates please confirm which location and duration of course you prefer or contact us on:
