With both courses, we have a large reversing area so you have as much practice as necessary with all aspects of the vehicle. Both these courses also have the option of refresher courses. Whether you have been driving all your life and just want to be updated on the course or you have not driven for several years, these refresher courses are the perfect option to maintain the standard of your skills.
These courses will allow you to drive vehicles over 3,500kg with a trailer over 750kg and vehicles over 3.5 tonnes and up to 32 tonnes. Coaches & Mini Bus
We have our own coach and mini bus that can be used for all our courses including class [D] Coach training and mini bus and trailer courses [Category D1 + E]. Before using our mini bus you must have your provisional D1 and also have completed your Hazard Perception and question test about buses.
