Why is Castle’s D1 minibus training pass rate so high?

- 27-Jul-2016 -

Because we’re that good! Ok, so we’re blowing our own trumpets a bit here, but we really do provide such an excellent minibus training scheme that our pass rate for the D1 test by far exceeds the national average.

How does Castle Minibus Driver Training do it?

Of course we care about our candidates, and if they do well, we look good, but here are some key points as to why Castle Driver Training is a world class service:


1) Our trainers are highly qualified Approved Driving Instructors (A.D.I`s)

Our trainers undergo rigorous training themselves to ensure their knowledge is top notch. But training alone does not a teacher make – personality goes a long way and all of our trainers have patient and calm manners, conducive to a relaxed D1 student:
“The minibus was spectacular and great to drive.
The communication and organisation fantastic.
The intense course allowed me to feel confident and prepared for the test.
But hats off to Cliff, he was professional, friendly and made me at ease the whole time.
He was an absolute pleasure to be around, he was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
So in my eyes a great asset to your team.
Thank you to everyone involved, it’s been a wonderful stress free experience.” – Charlotte Banks, Saint Benedict Catholic Voluntary Academy

2) All of our trainers are DBS checked and have to take regular stringent tests to keep their ADI status.

This is also a strict requirement of many of our candidates’ places of work and ensure safeguarding at all times.

3) The candidates are trained in the very latest Ford Transit Euro 6 minibuses:

  • Low emissions
  • Comfort, flexibility and space
  • Tinted glass and rear opening windows
  • Spacious and dependable
  • New standards in comfort and control
  • Easy to drive
  • Smart driver-oriented technology
  • Reclining seats and armrests, and so much more!

4) Our office based staff have a lot of experience in customer care and are fully trained in helping the candidates feel at ease

5) The candidates are in contact with their appointed trainer as soon as they send off their paperwork to the DVSA.

That personal touch means that our candidate’s dedicated trainers are in communication throughout the theory tests right up to passing their test

“Just a quick note to let you know ow much my colleagues enjoyed their training yesterday. Apparently Shane was great with them and very patient!! Many thanks again for all your help.” - Sue Swain, Nothill CofE School, Biggleswade

6) We only take the candidate out of school for 2 days which reduces the time and cost of having a supply teacher to cover.

We understand how much you invest in minibus driver training. Your teachers are vital assets that are missed form the school when they’re out, funds to cover the cost of the minibus itself are often raised through the efforts of the school and parent bodies and the children that are the ultimate ones to gain must be safeguarded at all times.

This is precisely why we invest so much in our trainers and why we only ever offer the very best for minibus driver training.
