The Training

The training is undertaken in an ambulance, and is not just for medical students but anyone requiring a 7.5 ton licence.

With a Experienced friendly instructor, and competitive prices with years of experience, we can also provide training for CPC MODULE 4 if it is something you require. This is not necessary for the ambulance / medical service, or if you are carrying your own goods.

Every day the various ambulance services around the UK provide life-saving transportation for those suffering from medical emergencies.

In addition, non-emergency services transport patients to and from medical appointments and healthcare facilities using specially-built ambulances and vans.

You could be part of this very noble calling by earning your licence to work as a professional.

The Specialist Training Services are offered by AS DRIVER TRAINING as one of only two training companies in Devon & Cornwall offering intensive ambulance driver training.

For purposes of clarification, there is a difference between an ambulance driver and a paramedic. You need to know this before you begin searching for work. If an ambulance service is looking to hire a driver who is also a paramedic, you will need to have completed the appropriate paramedic training prior to applying.

If an ambulance service is looking only for what is known as a patient transport service (PTS) driver, no paramedic training is needed.

Unfortunately there are no hard and fast rules that apply to ambulance service hiring practices. Some services hire paramedics exclusively to provide both patient care and transport; others hire separate drivers who do nothing but operate ambulances while paramedics provide care. You will need to carefully read job descriptions to know what a given ambulance service is after. If a job listing is not clear, do not be afraid to ask.

Most ambulances require a minimum Category C1 licence due to the weight and size of the vehicles in question. This licence allows you to drive vehicles between 3.5 and 7.5 ton MAM, without external trailers. Given that the average ambulance exceeds 3.5 ton of actual weight once you load in equipment and patients, the Category C1 is the standard licence for ambulance drivers.
