Eligibility Criteria: To kick-start your journey as a bus driver, you must meet certain eligibility criteria. This typically includes being at least 18 years old, holding a valid UK driving license (with minimal penalty points), and passing medical and eyesight tests. Additionally, you'll need to obtain a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) to legally drive a bus professionally.

Driver CPC Training: The Driver CPC is a legal requirement for all professional bus drivers in the UK. It ensures that drivers have the necessary skills and knowledge to safely operate a bus. At Craig Baker Driver Training, we offer comprehensive CPC training courses that cover topics such as vehicle safety, passenger awareness, and emergency procedures. Our expert instructors will guide you through the process, preparing you for both the theory and practical exams required to obtain your CPC.

Our practical training sessions are tailored to equip you with the skills needed to handle a variety of driving scenarios confidently. From mastering complex maneuvers to navigating diverse road conditions, our experienced instructors will support you every step of the way. With a fleet of modern training vehicles at your disposal, you'll gain invaluable hands-on experience in a safe and controlled environment.

Theory Test Preparation: In addition to practical skills, passing the theory test is essential for aspiring bus drivers. This exam evaluates your knowledge of road signs, traffic regulations, and hazard awareness. Our comprehensive theory test preparation ensures that you're fully equipped to ace the exam with flying colors. Through interactive learning materials and mock tests, we'll help you build the confidence and expertise needed to tackle the theory test with ease.

Licence Acquisition: Once you've successfully completed your training and passed both the theory and practical exams, you'll be ready to apply for your bus driving licence. With our guidance, navigating the licensing process will be a smooth and hassle-free experience. We'll provide you with all the necessary paperwork and support you throughout the application process, ensuring that you're fully compliant with UK driving regulations.
