Emergency Response Driver Training
If your company or organisation has the legal right to use the exemptions to allow you to drive using Blue lights and Sirens we can provide or formulate a course that meets your operational needs. We can deliver training at your location or you can come to our base. The emergency response driver training courses are in-line with:
Section 19 of the UK Road Safety Act
The UK High Speed Driver Training (HSDT) codes of practice
We also visit a motor vehicle race track for actual drive at speed training
The vocational licence:
C1 Licence – 7.5T Ambulance Driver Training C1 is not required by Drivers who passed their Category B (car licence) test before 1st January 1997 they benefit from acquired rights (also referred to as grandfathering rights). This means that these group of drivers already have the C1 entitlement on their driving licence, and will not need to take any additional tests. For other drivers our HGV courses can be taken from the age of 18 years onwards.
The 7.5T is the larger type vehicle used by ambulance services this is the same course as the LGV – except ambulance services are exempt from the driver CPC because they are emergency service vehicles.
Every course is individually tailored so that your training is specific to you,The intensive course is 2 days long with the test on the 2nd day. The test is marked at a considerable higher standard than the regular practical driving test. It is not just about reversing with a larger vehicle, it is also about improving your own driving skills and being aware of the limitations and size of the new vehicle you are in control of.
The training is carried out by our driving instructor who has extensive experience in training in this category of vehicle. By learning to drive in our ‘Ambulance’ (which meets the minimum test standard) you will find the controls and operation of the vehicle similar to majority of cars, making the training course easier for you.
