How do I get a Bus and Coach licence?
We will help you with our 4 Easy Steps
From April 2014 the law changed Drivers with a Manual Car Licence can pass a driving test in a bus with Automatic gear box and get a Manual Gear Box Licence to driver buses and coaches.
How long will it take to get my licence?
We have a range of courses from 3 to 10 days depending on your existing licence, driving skill as rate of ability to learn. Take a 1 hour Assessment Lesson and our instructor can advise you which course is best for you. Overall, including the time that DVLA & DVSA take to issue appointments and return your licence, for car drivers to be ready to work as a paid bus and Coach Driver, it will take at least 13 weeks from start to finish.
