Heavy Bus (HVB)/ Light Vehicle Bus (LVB)

Course Details

Become A Professional Driver!

At Belhasa Driving Center, we offer specialized training courses for driving heavy and light buses. The course is designed after extensive research and touches on all basic and fine aspects of heavy bus driving. The main focus is on areas including an increase in safety margins, up gradation and improvement of customer service, reduction of vehicle running cost and improvement in passenger relations. We have amalgamated new and most modern defensive driving techniques into the course. The course also includes sessions on the modern and accepted coach driver practices.

The course prepares the students for the heavy bus driver exam. After successfully completing the course, they are able to pass the traffic police RTA driving test. The students can also obtain the Dubai Driving License under Category 6. The student can drive passenger buses in Dubai and UAE once he/she completes the course and passes the RTA bus driver road test.

The course structure has many of the same technical components that are found in other courses. The additions are in areas of passenger safety and care. Apart from driving the bus, the driver should also care for other aspects such as sitting arrangement of children, grabbing of the hand rails, handling of emergency situations like accident or fire, etc.
