Union Approved Driver Application Form

Application Form to become an Union Approved Driver for a Student Group

Please complete this form to provide us here at the Students' Union with all the information we need to start the process for you to become an union approved driver.

The following outlines the process around taking a driving test with us:

  1. Check you meet the Driving a minibus requirements and have a read through the ‘Union Minibus Driver’s Pack’ ensuring that you understand the obligations and safety details around being a minibus driver.
  2. Complete the Union Approved Driver Application Form. You will need a completed Standard or Non-Standard Driver Declaration Form (classification criteria here), a DVLA check code and a PDF of your scanned drivers licence (front and back).
  3. Sit the paper assessment. We now have a online test for you to complete. You will have 30 minutes to complete the assessment. We recommend you read through the ‘Driver’s pack’ and ‘Road signs’ documents attached prior to this. If you fail the assessment you will have the opportunity to retake the assessment.
  4. Following on from this we’ll book a 2 hour practical assessment with our assessor.

The total cost is £35 which will be taken from your student group’s fundraising account for you, usually at the start of the following month.

If you have any queries please contact sutransport@leicester.ac.uk or pop into Union Reception.
