PCV BUS Driver Training

PCV PSV D Category Bus licence

Bus driver training and Coach driver training comes under PCV driver training. You will need this category to drive a passenger-carrying vehicle over 17 seats for hire or reward.

If you want to become a bus driver … you have come to the right place.

NDC train for major bus companies in London supplying hundreds of newly qualified drivers for London and Surrey and you can be one of them using our Dennis Dart automatic single-decker buses.

If you have the category D qualification then getting a job as a bus driver should be simple. There are always vacancies and we can put you in touch with the major companies that will offer you an interview (subject to their initial conditions).

If you want to drive a manual coach then you can still train on an automatic bus which, on passing, will allow you to drive a manual bus/coach provided that you originally passed your car test in a manual vehicle.


Your Initial CPC is now INCLUDED in your course saving you over £350!!
