The Course

Our category D1+E driver training course is completed on a 1-to-1 basis and will typically follow the format below:

  • Day 1: Practice reverse manouvre, uncoupling and recoupling procedure, with assessment
  • Day 2: On-the-road practical driver training
  • Day 3: On-road practical driving test

The practical driving test is made up of two parts:

Module 3A: an ‘S shaped’ reverse exercise into a loading bay. During your driver training course, you’ll practice this exercise at our private reversing area.

Module 3B: a 60-minute on-the-road drive. This will be conducted by a DVSA driving examiner at the end of your practical training course.

Driver CPC

If you intend to use your PCV licence professionally (i.e., use your licence for work purposes/to be paid as a driver), you will need to complete your PCV Driver CPC qualification.

For additional peace of mind, some customers wish to invest our Pass Protection insurance, priced at £395 including VAT.

This entitles you to 2 x Module 3A Retests (reverse exercise) and 2 x Module 3B Retests (on-road test), worth £878.
