PCV Driving Style
Driving a bus, coach or minibus is all about keeping the passenger safe and comfortable. We will teach you how to drive smoothly with passengers in mind, and at the same time keep your passengers, the vehicle and other road users safe.
This is the eco-friendly style now required in the practical driving test. Accelerating, braking, cornering all need to be smooth and controlled – in fact just elegant!
PCV with Trailer
On rare occasions, we are asked to help with a D + E candidate. In every case to date, the vehicle used has been their company’s own coach and trailer.
