PCV stands for Passenger Carrying Vehicle, and the requirements for obtaining a PCV licence are broadly similar to those for goods vehicles.
There are two categories of PCV licence:
As with goods vehicle licences, the “+E” suffix indicates that you may tow a trailer weighting more than 750kg behind your vehicle.
There is always a high level of demand for qualified bus and coach drivers, so gaining a Category D licence is a great career move.
Up to £25,000 per annum (£14.88 per hour)
Anyone with a car licence (Category B) over the age of 18 who is medically fit to drive.

The length of your training course will depend on the licence you require and any previous experience, including driving goods vehicles. It is likely to be somewhere between 1 – 7 days. We will be happy to discuss your specific requirements with you.
Costs and finance:
Costs will vary depending on where you do your training. We can provide all this information when you call us or submit an enquiry form. Remember, you can spread the cost of licence acquisition training through our Finance offering.
Once you have your licence, you will need to undergo a medical examination every 5 years and undertake 35 hours’ periodic Driver CPC training in order to keep your DQC up to date. This is standard for any PCV driver. Find out more about Driver CPC.
