Ambulance Training Worthing

At 2 Start Training Worthing, we offer Ambulance driver training and have helped a wide range of students to achieve their driving goals.

To become an Ambulance driver, you will be required to take a C1 driving test which will ensure you are safe and legal to drive an ambulance.

C1 Ambulance, Paramedic 7.5 Ton Application process:

Medical

You will need to complete a medical before your training begins, which we can arrange for you. A qualified doctor will deem whether you are safe to operate an ambulance by carrying out a series of tests. You will need to take a D4 medical form to your appointment. The doctor will complete this form and declare whether you are fit to drive.

Provisional Licence

Once you have passed the medical you will then need to fill in a (D2) licence application form. You will then need to send the D2 and D4 application forms, as well as your current drivers’ licence, to the DVLA. They will then return your licence with the provisional entitlement that you have applied for on it.

What are the requirements to be an ambulance driver in the UK?

Becoming a member of the ambulance service is a fulfilling yet challenging job. If you want to follow this path, there are several options to get there. Either attend University to become a paramedical technician or apply for an apprenticeship with your local Ambulance Service NHS Trust. Below is some further information.

If University isn’t for you, care assistant is another path you can take.  To do this you will need at least 3-4 GCSEs including English, maths and a science subject.
