  • Step 7 Driver CPC Practical Demo Mod 4 If you will be driving professionally we will arrange your practical demo training and test with your Cat D1 practical training course. 

We would advise you to use our free application pack because it includes everything you need and a step by step guide. It is designed to make the license acquisition process very quick, simple and an effective method to help gain your new license. 

The practical course is 1:1 and we usually recommend an intensive driver training course, we can be flexible operating in the evening and weekends to work around your busy schedule. We use brand new Ford Transit 14 seat Minibus training vehicles because they are very small, easy to drive and simple. They are all factory fitted with reversing cameras which aid you on the lessons and test. We have our own private test site meaning that we follow test routes and practice the manoeuvres from the same site that you will take your test. A lot of providers train you in one town but then test you in another which we disagree with, that is why we set up Shropshire's only private site. We have a lot of tests available at our site, this will keep your waiting time to a minimum and could speed up the process by 10 weeks. 

The Driver CPC will only be needed if you are driving professionally. If you need it we will add this to your training program and can also help you with a tachograph application. We will make sure everything is covered from your initial application to starting your new career. We are one of the only independent training providers in the UK with our own in-house DVSA Driver CPC Mod 4 examiner. We train you and test you at our site. Be aware of some providers who do this, if you are trained by the same person who tests you or does any other driver training with you before or after the Driver CPC this is not allowed and may have consequences. 

We will also help you with looking for your new job through out network of local employers and driving agencies.
