Paramedic Driver Training  

Paramedic Driver Training  

Did you know paramedic drivers now need a C1 licence? 
 
If you're considering a career as a paramedic and passed your driving test after January 1997, then you'll need to acquire a category C1 licence due to a change in legislation. 
 
To acquire your C1 licence you will need to pass a medical and apply for the C1 provisional entitlement on your licence. To do this you require forms D2 and D4. The provisional entitlement is free but you will have to pay for the Medical Examination Report which you need to accompany the licence application. GP fees can vary from as little as £35 to over £100. You do not have to use your own GP and we can recommend a doctor in the West Midlands who charges £35. 
Once you are in receipt of your provisional C1 licence we can book your theory and hazard perception tests at a test centre of your choice, on a date and time to suit you. We can also provide the revision materials required for these tests. 
Our Category C1 Paramedic Package includes: 
Pack containing forms required for medical examination and licence application 
Assistance in arranging a medical examination 
Theory & Hazard Perception Tests 
Revision Materials required for Theory & Hazard Perception Test (deposit required) 
1 to 1 practical training with a qualified instructor in a similar size vehicle to an ambulance 
DSA Practical test 
 
"Training will be on a 1 to 1 basis with one of our qualified instructors and will take place over 3 consecutive days" 
On successful completion of these tests, you are ready to begin your practical training. Here at A1 Training, we use a vehicle of similar size to an ambulance. Some training schools use full size C1 (7.5 tonnes) vehicles which are more difficult to handle and manoeuvre and pass rates are reduced. 
 
Training will be on a 1 to 1 basis with one of our qualified instructors and will take place over 3 consecutive days, with your practical test on the third day at a local DSA test centre.
