D License

Hey all,
If this is the wrong place I apologize in advance. Looking to get my Bus license.
Can anyone who has passed it lately let me know the cost and how long it took.
Thanks

If your going to apply for the Dublin Bus jobs then you will need to do both your Theory and CPC Case Study tests. The Tests cost 75 euro each and have a month + waiting list times.

If you are getting paid to drive the bus you must complete the CPC exams anyway plus a practical on the day of the test.

Thanks for the reply Trucker.
There is no required lessons, just the test pass but unless you have experience with a large vehicle you are not going to pass without a number of lessons.

I am guessing Truckermal was already a trucker.

A scenario like shifting a drunk off the bus or a micra pulls out in front of you? That kind of thing?
