PCV (Passenger Carrying Vehicle) was formerly known as PSV (Passenger Service Vehicle). The Bus PCV Category D licence allow drivers who pass the PCV Category D Bus licence to drive any kind of bus or coach including single decker's, double decker buses and also bendi buses.
Once you pass the PCV category D test, you will then obtain a category D entitlement on your driving licence, and will be able to drive any automatic bus. You will also receive Category D1 (Minibus Licence) as PCV Category D supersedes the Category D1 minibus licence.
If you have a manual Category B licence (car licence), then you will only be required to take the test in an automatic vehicle, but will will be still be awarded a manual PCV Category D licence. You can still choose to take your PCV bus test in a manual vehicle or coach if you choose, but we believe all this does it make the test mor challenging and difficult for no reason.
