Learn to Drive a Minibus

Our manual Minibus lessons are provided by our team of qualified instructors at our Finglas Training Centre and on the most popular test routes, 7 days a week. The lessons are suitable for drivers who wish to professionally drive minibuses in private, school, healthcare service, and community development settings or to upgrade their private licence enabling them to hire a minibus. With access to Dublin’s only off-road practice Reversing Bay, you will gain the confidence and skill to pass your D1 category driving test the first time. Our D1 vehicles are Ford Transit Minibuses – the newest training vehicles in Ireland.

Learning with ISM offers a natural path for professional drivers to permanent and temporary jobs within our own in-house Recruitment Agency, the largest Driver Recruitment Agency in Ireland within the Transport and Logistics sectors.
