Another New Training Bus on the Road 17/02/2023

We are proud to announce that we now have another new bus in our group training fleet.

This one is a little bit special though as Preston Bus has been given a little mention.

Our Training School is based in Bolton but covers the uk for all our sister companies.

Our Driver Academy

Rotala’s New Training Academy is here!

Diamond Bus North West and its parent company Rotala have great pleasure in introducing our rebranded Training Academy.  

Rotala started its training department in 2017. It then transferred from Preston to Bolton in 2019 when our North West Business increased following the purchase of Bolton depot. 

In our Training Academy, we have our own Delegated Examiner who can facilitate all levels of the PCV test requirements in house with our trainee drivers. 

We have a number of experienced trainers with over 90 years experience in teaching and instructing between them, so our trainee drivers are in safe hands. 

We strive to ensure all trainee drivers who join our business feel part of the team from day one, this then shines through in the pass rates we deliver that is higher than the industry standard.  

Our Training Academy doesn’t just support our trainee drivers, it also supports every new member of our team when they join the business to ensure they are up to speed with our processes.  

We deliver Driver CPC internally for all our workforce to keep our existing drivers up to date and compliant. We also support our engineering colleagues with training on site to keep up with the latest technology. The Training Academy supports each depot with collision reduction initiatives to ensure the service we deliver is as safe as possible.
