PCV refers to passenger carrying vehicle such as minibuses, buses, coaches, D+E vehicles and so on. If a person wishes to become a PCV driver, then he or she must have the PCV licence in order to so. The licence is obtained by a period of training. There are many driving schools in the whole of U\k to provide this type of training. PCV Training hails for a short period but is mandatory to be undertaken by the applicant.
There are some necessary aspects so as to complete the procedure of being a professional PCV or PSV driver. Some provisional entitlements need to be added like the following-
- medical examination
- the theory and hazard perception test
- theory test training
- category D test training
Medical examination and a D4 medical exam form followed by a D2 are compulsory to be filled and cleared by your doctor. Only then you would be returned your licence. A driver should be medically fit, that is, both physically and mentally capable. The medical examination is thus an essential prerequisite.
The next condition is the multiple choice theory and hazard perception tests. Generally in the UK , only DSA publications are preferred as the study material for the tests per se. These tests are easily available for booking at any time and at reasonable price. The drivers of the large vehicles need to go for this test. The PCV Training theory test is one part. The next part requires you to clear the practical driver training test for the category of D.
Or you have an excellent choice of going the other way round. Instead of going here and there for the various procedures listed and explained above, it is advisable to avail a package of a mere amount of £225 and get all this done with. The feature of the package includes the following-
