What you’ll achieve:

  • On completion of this course and you have passed the test, you will be licensed to drive a passenger carrying vehicle up to 16 passenger seats with a trailer up to 4.5 tonnes (Combined train weight of 12 tonnes).
  • You will also gain the B+E (Car & Trailer) licence, if you don’t already have it. This is due to the D1E test being greater or equal size to the other entitlements.
