Passengers when teaching PCV

Hi all

As I understand it from the Motor Vehicles (Driving Licences) Regulations  1999 it would appear to be an offence for a holder of a Provisional PCV to carry passengers when driving a bus, other than a supervising driver of course, even though the passenger may also be training for the PCV Licence.

Do I understand this correctly.

Re: Passengers when teaching PCV

8) The holder of a passenger-carrying vehicle drivers provisional licence shall not drive a vehicle which he is authorised to drive by that licence while carrying any passenger in the vehicle other than?

(a)the person specified in paragraph (2)(a), or
(b)a person who holds a passenger-carrying vehicle drivers licence and either is giving or receiving instruction in the driving of passenger-carrying vehicles, or has given or received or is to give or receive, such instruction.

The holder of a passenger-carrying vehicle drivers provisional licence shall not drive a vehicle which he is authorised to drive by that licence while carrying any passenger in the vehicle other than a person who holds a passenger-carrying vehicle drivers licence and either is giving or receiving instruction in the driving of passenger-carrying vehicles, or has given or received or is to give or receive, such instruction.

THey must hold a provisional licence to drive the vehicle and be learning to drive the vehicle. So you can carry additional students so long as they are to drive the vehicle themselves.

I did my PCV training with Lothian buses we had 3 or more students on a bus during training.

You cannot carry "passengers" ie the public on a bus service or private hire.

Re: Passengers when teaching PCV

Hi

Thanx for that.

When I did my training with Cardiff Bus we had 3-4 other trainee's on the bus, what is unclear to me is in the regulations 8b refers to "passenger-carrying vehicle drivers licence" not passenger-carrying vehicle drivers provisional licence, surely there is a distinction between the two there.

Re: Passengers when teaching PCV

It doesn't differentiate between:
full passenger-carrying vehicle drivers licence
provisional passenger-carrying vehicle drivers licence

If you read too many legal documents you will get a head ache!
