Getting Started

you are considering a career as an Ambulance Driver, ISM’s Ambulance Driver Training Course will give you the knowledge and skills necessary to get your career off to a flying start.

We have been providing professional driving lessons since 1961. We are the market leaders and provide the most modern and newest Ambulances for tuition and guarantee the most competitive prices. ISM’s training courses will ensure that you are well placed to pass your Ambulance Driving Test (C1 category) the first time you take it as ISM Instructors boast a 90% Test Pass Rate.

Our courses will give you not only the practical skills to pass your test but will guide you through the procedures for permit-applications, calculating laden weights etc. We also specialise in both the Initial and the Periodic Drivers CPC Training Courses.

Our Vehicles

Our Ambulances’ are Mercedes Sprinters. They are fully commissioned Box Body Ambulances, with lights, sirens and fully kitted out for paramedics. These vehicles will ensure you pass your category C1 licence. We also provide qualified ESDS trainers upon request.

We are the only driving school in Ireland that owns a Vehicle Reversing Bay. Our Purpose-Built Training Centre is conveniently located next to the RSA Finglas Driving Test Centre and provides a safe and secure environment to practise off-side and near-side reversing.

We have designed our Reversing Bay the same as the Road Safety, so you can reach the Driving Test standard in a professional manner. All other Driving Schools have to use public street corners which is not at all safe for other road users. Also, all our Training Vehicles are fitted with Air Brake Dual-Controls and are fully insured.

Your ADI ISM Driving Instructor will always be in control of the vehicle, so your safety and the safety of other road users will never be compromised. For more information or to make a booking call us now at 01 864 1790 or email us your details to and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

ISM is the leading provider of systematic training programs to the Irish passenger carrying industry. Our client-base of trucking companies have found that they quickly recover the cost of our Training Courses in savings derived from greater fuel efficiency, reduced machine wear and improved safety.
