Is This The Training For You?
This course is for individuals beginning their career as a professional driver of a Minibus in the Transport and Logistics industry. Before starting driving lessons, trainees must pass the Category D Bus Driver Theory Test, have a bus learner permit and pass the CPC case study test. At ISM we have a special offer of 7 hours of training with one of our RSA Approved Driving Instructors. Trainees will have access to the newest Ford Transit Minibuses and our dedicated off-road practice reversing bay to ensure their best chance of passing the test first time. Trainees will learn the practical skills to pass their test but will provide guidance through the procedures for permit applications, calculating laden weights and using tachographs. We support professional drivers throughout their career by providing CPC Modular Training to renew their certification and a CPC Transport Manager course for drivers seeking career progression.
