Training courses for professional drivers

Given the large size of trailers, the training courses for the C+E driving license have an adapted method that allows each enrolled student to have the necessary tools to pass both the theoretical framework tests and the practical tests on closed and open circuits.

Each student can also ensure that he/she has what is necessary to pass the evaluation tests by accessing the virtual learning space, where he/she can find different tests programmed to test his/her acquired theoretical skills.

In order for each student to find our C+E license training course fully beneficial, we try to know the previous experience of each student in the field of driving in order to avoid the repetition of contents.

In addition, our team divides the practices into two phases to ensure that each student has the necessary skills to qualify for the C+E driving license. On the one hand, the practices in a closed circuit are used to learn the maneuvers and the main actions that are carried out in the cab of the trailer. Passing them gives access to the open tests, where everything assimilated in previous classes is put into practice.
