The Most Comprehensive Bus Driving Course Bournemouth Has to Offer

Here at Dorset Driver Training, we provide a comprehensive bus driving course in Bournemouth. If you’re thinking of driving a bus as a career, you won’t be able to do this on a Category B (standard driving) licence. You’ll need to become certified to handle larger vehicles, and this requires that you apply for a Category D licence.

To be eligible for this licence, applicants must demonstrate a sound knowledge of all related professional driving techniques. The candidate must have the right attitude and a genuine aptitude for handling a bus. Above all else, they must demonstrate a constant awareness of safe driving practices, as they’ll be routinely responsible for transporting other people. Our Bournemouth bus driving course equips you with all the skills you’ll need to succeed in this role.

Our Bus Driving Course in Bournemouth

In order to qualify, you’ll need to pass a medical examination performed by either your own GP or our practitioner in Bournemouth. Bus driving course stipulations require that you take a D2 medical application form with you, and you’ll be supplied with a set of D4 forms. Once you’ve passed your medical, you must apply for a provisional and pass your theory test to proceed.

You’ll receive a bespoke training plan with the hours spread across five days. Bus driving courses in Bournemouth are carried out Monday-Friday, and we can also offer Saturday sessions too. All courses include verbal and practical training which will cover a wide range of areas. From improving general driving skills to learning complex driving manoeuvres, everything you need to know will be covered.

Once you’ve completed the educational component of our Bournemouth driving course, you’ll take your practical test. The practical portion of the course entails vehicle safety questions, a reversing exercise, and 50-60 minutes of driving on a public road. Other areas will also be covered too, and you can find out more about these by clicking on our ‘Cat D’ page.
