This is course primarily for drivers with L.G.V. categories on their licence.
Drivers who only drive buses for a living please note that this is primarily a L.G.V. course (rather than PCV). However it will count towards your 35 hours of periodic training and some of the modules are very similar to those on the equivalent P.C.V. course.
For any bus drivers who have not completed their 35 hours, you can still come on our courses to obtain your DQC, however you must have a category 'C1' on your drivers license.
