Do you already have a car licence?

Would you like to upgrade your driver’s licence so that you can drive a minibus, double-decker bus or coach?


Drive Time Project provides FREE PCV Training to individuals who would like to acquire a bus or coach driving licence.

This training includes the Initial Driver CPC Modules at no extra cost.

Join the Drive Time Project (run in partnership with Campden Charities) and take advantage of FREE PCV Training.

PCV Driving Licences available through the Drive Time Project are:

  • D1 (for minibuses with up to 17 seats)
  • D (for larger buses and coaches)

D1 LICENCE holders can pursue driving as a professional career with companies like Westway CT, Dial-A-Ride, Patient Transport Services and School Transport providers. These organisations all use minibuses and are always on the lookout for professionally trained drivers.

D LICENCE holders can drive larger vehicles such as Coaches and Double-decker Buses.

The training is free of charge to people who meet the criteria (listed above), and you can move through the training at an individual pace. Campden Charities can, in some cases, also offer extra financial help to support candidates’ transition into work.


We are pleased to announce that over 83 people have been accepted into this scheme and are in full-time employment and we envisage much more being able to benefit from this fantastic opportunity.
