    The Best Minibus Training Dorset Has to Offer 

    If you’re interested in our minibus training in Dorset, give our training centre a call to request a slot for either yourself or members of your team. Each candidate will receive one-to-one tuition from one of our instructors, all of whom are fully accredited with the National Register of Instructors. They all hold current DBS certificates. Once D1 training is complete, candidates can take their course either at our Poole LGV/PCV test centre or our Southampton location. 

    Following the completion of our Dorset minibus training course, you’ll be qualified to drive a minibus with up to 17 seats driver’s seat included. This new licence will widen your career prospects and make you more flexible as a driver. You’ll be able to work professionally, and if you need to get your licence quickly before starting a new job, our intensive courses are certainly advantageous.  

    Before you apply, there are exceptions worth bearing in mind. If you obtained your standard driver’s (Cat B) licence before January 1st 1997, under Grandfathering Rights, your licence would already have the D1 certification. So, while you can drive a minibus privately, a 101-restriction code means you cannot drive it commercially. If you wish to drive a minibus commercially or passed your test after January 1st, you’ll need to embark on minibus training, Dorset customers. This will unlock your D1 licence or lift the restriction on an older Cat B licence. 

    Minibus + Trailer 

    If you’re planning on driving a minibus while towing a trailer, you cannot do this on a standard D1 licence. For this, you must have a D1+E (Minibus and Trailer) licence. At Wayside Transport, we can provide additional training and certification, teaching you the basics of operating a minibus with a trailer attached. We’ll teach you how to do this safely, and once certified, you’ll be able to tow a trailer with a gross weight of more than 750kg. 

    Other Available Courses 

    Besides minibus training, Dorset-based Wayside Transport also provides other course options, including: 

    • LGV Training  
    • LGV Instructor Training  
    • CPC Training  
    • PCV Training
