Drive Time Project

We offer FREE Training through our Drive Time Project

Run in partnership with Campden Charities the project provides driver training to long-term unemployed individuals who would like to acquire a PCV vocational bus driving licence

You can join our Drive Time Project and take advantage of the training if you have a low income or you are unemployed and live in the Old Parish of Kensington (this criteria must be met before you can apply)

It is a really exciting project to be part of because of its innovative approach; participants have their training tailored to their needs and time constraints.

Vocational Driving Licences available through Drive Time are D1 (for minibuses with up to 17 seats) and D (for larger buses, generally available only to those candidates who have a higher driving standard)

A D1 holder can pursue driving as a professional career with companies like Westway CT, Dial-A-Ride, Patient Transport Services and School Transport providers. These organisations all use minibuses and are constantly on the look out for professionally trained drivers

The training is totally free of charge to people who meet the criteria and you can move through it at an individual pace. Campden Charities can, in some cases, also offer extra financial help to support candidates’ transition into work


We are pleased to announce that over 100 people have been accepted onto this scheme since April 2006 and we envisage much more being able to benefit from this fantastic opportunity.
