According to the RTA criteria, a Heavy Bus is a vehicle having a capacity of over 36 passengers.
As you will be transporting passengers, it is essential to add to the skills you already have as a driver of car. Our Heavy Bus driving licence course caters to students planning to qualify for a licence to drive passenger buses. You will need to pass the RTA driving test to get your Dubai Driving Licence Category 6.
While this course is similar to our other courses in terms of the technical aspects, the added emphasis is on passenger care and safety. Not only will you need to master driving a larger vehicle and dealing with pedestrians and other road users unaware of the challenges of driving a large bus, you will also be responsible for the safety and comfort of numerous passengers. In particular, you will need to ensure children are seated properly and that other safety measures like holding handrails are constantly observed. Moreover, a bus driver must always know what to do in case there is an emergency or how to handle other incidents like a fire or a traffic accident.
As well as driving your vehicle safely, you’ll also need to deliver your passengers safely, courteously, efficiently and on time to their destination.
Good driving isn’t just about learning the rules of the road: your skill and attitude as a driver are vital too, and you’ll keep learning and developing these over the years.
As a professional driver, you should set an example to other road users by showing the right attitude to your driving and a good knowledge of safe, modern driving techniques.
All our carefully chosen instructors have been specially tutored to motivate and guide you to learn how to stay alert, expertly navigate the roads and maintain precise control regardless of the environment or driving conditions. You will learn how to be patient with other drivers and anticipate what could happen around you.
Our driving instructors are not only devoted to observing and maintaining safety at all times, they are exceptionally trained with years of driving experience. All our instructors are professional tutors with the requisite teaching licence endorsed by the RTA. To enhance their skills, they frequently undergo training and briefings on the latest safety procedures and driving technology. By regularly liaising with RTA traffic officials, they also keep themselves updated on new road and highway routes and additional safety measures.
Once you have registered with us, you can choose from our different training course options according to your preference.
