Ambulance Driver Training Scotland

Pass your C1 7.5 Tonne test with confidence!

Our patient instructors are fully trained to provide LGV training.

We also offer advanced driving courses for those who passed prior to 1997 and already hold C1 entitlement but might have never actually driven a large vehicle, or simply need guidance.

We can also provide corporate fleet training and assessments for company vehicle drivers.

Please be aware that most candidates who are unsuccessful at the C1 test fail due to their general forward driving, not the reverse exercise. The standard of driving required is much higher than that of the standard learner car test.

Training is available 7 days per week from 0700 to 2200 subject to day light.
