D1+E Licence

D1+E Training Vehicle

What is the D1+E Licence

The D1+E Licence will allow you to drive D1+E vehicles with a trailer over 750kg MAM.

The combined MAM of both cannot exceed 12,000kg.

Typically the driver will be looking to add the category D1+E to their licence so they can transport group outings like Boy Scouts or Girl Guides for example.

Absolutely amazing, dedicated and knowledgable trainers! Zack, Dawn & a big thank you to Dean for preparing me and taking me through to passing!! Utterly brilliant and thoroughly recommend!! Thank you!!
