Castle Driver Training a little bit of history

In developing our relationships with our schools, we were made aware of another area the schools were struggling with, and that was Driver Training for D1 and assessment days (also known as MiDAS). So in 2013, we formed Castle Driver Training. We set new standards in this area by having highly qualified ADI top grade Driver Trainers, in the latest model Ford Transit minibuses and very quickly, we were recording a pass rate that was near twice the national average.

We guide our candidates throughout the theory and practical tests which minimise the time the Bursar or School Business Manager previously had to spend with colleagues trying to coach them in an area they don't as standard have specialist knowledge of, and therefore the quality of coaching can be somewhat diminished. Because of the quality of our staff and service we are saving schools money on supply teachers costs as we train in half the time other companies take to deliver courses and because we are the only company to come to school to teach, this saves valuable time and cost for the candidates as well as twice the chance of passing first time! Today 1 in 10 people taking their D1 test is doing so with Castle, and we trained our 1,000th teacher in spring 2017.

The MCC one day courses will be held throughout the UK in 2018 and will cover the following topics:

The role and responsibilities of the School Transport Manager

Your driver, the vehicle and the journey

An over view of how to stay compliant with Minibus laws and regulations

The current legislation surrounding having a school minibus

Groups of people round tables and in discussion - Castle Minibuses
