What do I need before I start?

You must hold a valid UK driving licence and be at least 18.

What will I be doing? 

  • Pass a medical and apply for a Cat D provisional entitlement.
  • Prepare online and pass the Multiple Choice and Hazard Perception theory tests.
  • Driver training and practical test.
  • Driver CPC training and test if you will be driving professionally. 
Once you pass the theory tests we recommend arranging a free taster session. This is a perfect opportunity to visit one of our sites and find out more about the courses that we offer and try the equipment that we use.  It allows us to predict a suitable amount of lessons for you. 

Where will I do my course and test?

Our driving courses are available in Shrewsbury, Telford and Wrexham. We have hundreds of driving tests pre booked at these locations. Shrewsbury and Telford are private DVSA test sites used exclusively by Dulson Training for training and tests. We will arrange an intensive training course and test to fit in with your schedule available 7 days a week. We operate the only facility in Shrewsbury for Cat D driving tests. 

How does the training work?

We supply the equipment you need for the training and test. Our Cat D coach is an easy to drive automatic and easy to reverse. Your lessons will be in the same location as your test. Our experienced instructors will prepare you for the 90 minute test one to one. Covering the reversing exercise, safety questions and on road driving. 

Our most popular course is 16 hours including the test. This is usually completed over 4 days with the test on the 4th day.

The course is not fixed, we can arrange more or less training depending on your skill and experience. Our 16 hour course works very well for most people and produces an excellent pass rate more than double of the national average.  

Will I need a Driver CPC? 

If you will be driving professionally you will need a Driver CPC. To qualify you will need to pass the Mod 2 Case Studies and Mod 4 Practical Demo Tests. 

The Mod 4 Practical Demo training and test will be integrated with your Cat D course with our in-house DVSA assessors. 

On completion you will receive a Drivers Qualification Card valid for 5 years. To update this card you will need to complete 35 hours (5 days) periodic training within the 5 years. We hold periodic training courses every week. 

Can I pay monthly? 

We are able to spread the costs up to 5 years with variable or fixed APR rates. A credit check and T&C’s apply. You can complete the finance application in your name or someone can apply on your behalf. We can work out a monthly plan depending on your budget by adjusting the deposit and the duration of the credit. 

You can email us on info@dulsontraining.co.uk or contact our head office on 01952 770659 to discuss.
