Are there any course restrictions?

You need to be over 21 and have held a full UK car licence for at least 2 years. The photocard licence (if held) must be in date. Old-style paper licences are still acceptable. If you have 6 points or more, or recent driving bans, please speak to us in advance or be prepared to wait for insurance company clearance before you drive. Some foreign (non-UK) licences are acceptable – please ask in advance.

If you wish to drive minibuses as a PAID JOB, you will need a category D1 on your licence. This can be with the restriction code, 101, if driving minibuses operated by non-profit organisations for pay.

If the minibus you tell us you wish to drive is over the WEIGHT LIMIT for your category B ONLY licence, we will not train you, as you would be driving illegally and not insured. Do contact us if you have any doubts.
