Mini Bus Driver Training Course

Learn how to drive a minibus in Bournemouth

The courses we offer are for:-

  • Drivers who passed their car test before 1 January 1997, with a category D1 on their licence
  • Drivers who passed their car test after 1 January 1997, with a category B on their licence who comply with the necessary exceptions as outlined by the DVLA.

You must be 21-70 years of age. If you are over 70, you can still drive a minibus, but only with a successful doctor's report.  

See Government Guidelines for further information.

During the course you will learn:

  • The difference between driving a minibus and driving a car
  • The rules and regulations of minibus driving
  • Practical minibus driving skills

Once you have passed, this is valid for 3 years. After 3 years, you will need to have a re-assessment. This assessment is 90 minutes in a minibus where the driver needs to:

  • Successfully answer minibus-related questions
  • Demonstrate that their driving has remained safe in the 3 years since their last minibus assessment
