PCV Training In East London
Our PCV Training / PSV training is based in East London. PCV (Public Carriage Vehicle) was formerly known as PSV (Public Service Vehicle), and anyone who passes a PCV Driving test, will be allowed to drive a PCV vehicle of that particular category for hire and reward. Our PSV / PCV trainining courses in East London are taught by qualified instructors, who have an enviable success record for people passing their PCV Bus, PCV Coach test & PCV minibus test first time.
In order to get an PCV Category D or Category D1 licence, you need to be at least 17 years of age and have a full driving licence with Category B.
Once you have obtained your Category B licence, you must then complete a PCV medical examination (unless you have already completed a medical for an LGV licence), and then apply to the DVSA to add provisional entitlements to your licence for you to learn to drive PCV's (Public Carriage Vehicle's). We suggest that when applying to the to add your PCV provisional entitlements (Category D & Category D1), that you also apply for provisional entitlement for LGV (Category C (Lorry) & Category C1), as it is simply a case of ticking the box on the application form, and like the PCV provisional entitlement, is completely free of charge to apply for, and once added as a provisional entitlement to your licence, will remain there should you require it in the future with no need to re-apply.
Once you have passed your PCV medical exam, and obtained your provisional licence, you will then need to sit and pass your PCV theory test. Once you have passed your PCV theory test, you can then book onto one of our PCV training courses, and look forward to receiving the best possible PCV training to help ensure you pass your PCV practical test first time.
Please follow our flowchart which explains exactly how you get your PCV lorry licence.
