Drivers need to understand and must comply with legislation to help keep the transportation of dangerous goods safe. Legislation is in place to ensure drivers gain specialist knowledge and skills and understand the practical application of specific health and safety techniques.
Employers are responsible for making sure existing staff are fully qualified and that new staff have already or are willing to gain relevant qualifications.
Anyone new to the qualification will need an INITIAL course. Existing ADR holders can take REFRESHER courses. Certificates are valid for 5 years. In the final year prior to expiration, a short re-certification course re-qualifies the driver for a further 5 years. CALL 020 8453 3440 for next available dates and cost of training

At the end of training, as a successful operator you are issued with a ITSSAR Certificate and photocard which is recognised across the UK.

Whatever Passenger Carrying Vehicle driving job you are aiming for, we can help you obtain the licence you need. All types of PCV training vehicles are based at Wembley which is easily assessible by public transport and free parking is also available as well as Croydon and Enfield for our Automatic Bus Training
We recommend all our customers to take a DRIVING ASSESSMENT LESSON. Visit our school, meet our instructors and try our vehicles. During the lesson our instructor will evaluate your current driving skills, relevant experience and establish training needs, then provide training recommendations and we will quote you based on those findings.
When you pass a PCV test on a manual gearbox coach, you have passed the top PCV licence and you can drive any Passenger Carrying Vehicle regardless of the number of seats or the type of body, i.e. single or double-decker, service bus or saloon coach body, automatic gear box or manual, and minibuses.
It's good to have the top PCV licence for a wider range of job opportunities.
However, if you are planning to work with one of the local bus companies you may find it easier to get your Automatic PCV licence which will save you money too!.
Wallace School of Transport's Manual Coach and Minibus is based at Wembley and our Automatic Bus training is available at Wembley, Enfield and Croydon
If you are an experienced coach driver and want to enhance your driving credentials and touring opportunities, maybe driving on the continent, consider the flexibility of obtaining D+E.
Our Manaul Coach is fitted with a towing facility so we can provide training for you to obtain PCV D+E to drive a Coach and Trailer across UK and Europe.
If you obtained your UK car Licence before January 1997, you may hold restricted D1 entitlement to drive a minibus for Social and Pleasure but not for paid work (Hire and Reward). However, for starting a job driving a Minibus (or a Limousine with more than 8 passengers) you’ll need to pass a PCV D1 driving test.
Although there are some exceptions, e.g. for volunteers age 21 or over driving small minibuses for Not for Profit organisations, but in most instances DVLA consider that if a minibus is used for public transportation, drivers of these vehicles must conform to the same legislation as a driver seeking employment with the licence.
If you need to carry more baggage or equipment like canoes, kayaks, camp gear and tents then towing a trailer may be the answer for you.
Indeed, drivers and tour guides working at holiday companies, or youth workers and scout/guide leaders often re-approach us having passed their minibus test when they need to upgrade their D1 entitlement for trailer entitlment.
If your minibus is full of passengers and there is no space left for luggage and equipment, the obvious solution is to house it all in a trailer and tow it behind the vehicle as it continues along to your site or holiday destination
Holding a Certificate of Professional Competence is an essential qualification required by law for anyone wishing to operate vehicles. Obtaining this qualification demonstrates the professional competence of the owner operator or transport manager responsible for the control of goods vehicles or of anyone applying for an Operator's Licence
To gain the CPC qualification candidates must sit formal examinations which are held four times a year (March, June, September and December) and successfully complete a case study as part of the examination process. Examinations are administered by OCR on behalf of the Department for Transport.
If you obtained your car licence after January 1997 you will need to take trailer training and sit a DSA driving test to acquire B+E entitlement as new drivers may drive a vehicle up to 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight (GVW) with a 750kgs GVW trailer which may not be big enough for your purpose.
Many people choose an Automatic Bus Licence because driving a vehicle fitted with an automatic gear box is quicker and easier to learn to drive than a manual gear box.
There are plenty of opportunities for working as a bus driver. For example, all London's Red Buses are automatics.
The licence is not affected by the number of seats or the type of body (i.e. single decker or saloon coach body) and passing on a single deck vehicle will still give you a licence to drive a double decker.
Our various locations for training suit clients with a need for local training. Our flexible timetable means we can usually ensure driver training times suit your schedule and events by offering either intensive courses or single days of training to a timetable
With developments in luxuriously equipped RV’s, clients often contact us once they find the weight and size of the vehicle is more than their car licence will allow them to drive.
Many of the bigger American and some British and European Touring Motor Homes are over 3.5 tonnes so you must have Category C1 to drive them which can be a problem for anyone who obtained their UK licence after January 1997.
