Please note the course includes the use of the Southend West SSP mini bus for both theory and practical session and costs £80.00


I am aware there has been conflicting advice regarding mini bus training. For this reason I have attached a copy of the 2002 DfES guidelines.

If your delegate passed their test after Jan 1997 they must be over 21 years of age and have held a license for a minimum of 2 years in order to participate.


The course has limited places available. Please go to to secure your booking as soon as possible. An invoice will be self generated by the website please send payment asap to confirm your place.
