This thread is for those that have done their Bus (or lorry!) licence privately and have a training school to recommend.
I'll start the ball rolling:
The Scania Driver Experience - Purfleet, Essex. Bookings taken at a central booking line and they recommend an assessment drive at a cost of £72 which is refunded when a course is booked. I did my HGV here but their training staff are very good and very patient. Bus training is done in a manual coach.

I realise this is an old thread, but thought I’d add to the list. I recently gained my Cat D licence and DQC following a week with EP Training. Their Module 3 practical driving lessons are done out of a yard near Addlestone (just a couple of minutes from J11 of the M25), with the test done at Guildford test centre. The Module 4 CPC practical demonstration is done by in-house examiners at their Bookham office (near Leatherhead). I did my medical and Modules 1/2 myself, however EP can also facilitate these as part of a package deal. Training is done on a 2:1 basis, 0700-1530, using a 2008 MCV eVolution-bodied MAN. Their website is: www.eptraining.co.uk
Appreciate that we're in what was originally a London based and centred forum, but for those in Scotland, one of my staff was recently put through his test by Ritchies in Glasgow. An alternative and also another good training provider in the area is GTG
