  13. Michael

    Hi mate could you send me am email of the price for a rear articulated dumper course and if possible could you do it any cheaper if 2 of us was to do the course the same time? Also my mate is concerned about the theory part of it, is it a hard theory test or with a little bit of revision should it be quite easy? kind regards Michael

  14. Siôn Jones

    If there are group bookings I’ll happily look into a discount for you and your friend. Regarding the theory test, we make this as straight forward as possible. At the start of the course, we’ll go through all of the questions with you to ensure full understanding, you’ll then have a day or two to study up. Remember the theory test is a verbal test and not written, and the questions will be asked in plain English to ensure no mis-communication.
    Look forward to hearing from you.

  36. Siôn Jones

    Emma, thanks for your comment.

    I have sent you information regarding our next CPCS dumper & dumptruck courses via email.

    The theory test is very similar for both forward and rear tipping dumper/ dumptrucks. There are approx. 60 questions, that we will go over on the first day of the course. You will then have all the information you need to study for the test, which is a verbal test on the last day of the course.

    The CSCS test in included in the price of the course.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

  37. Russell

    Hi, do you still do the articulated rear tip dumper training courses? I’m looking for a career change and never drove one of these before but always wanted to so I’m a complete novice , where do the courses take place and how easy is it to find a
    Company that takes on red card holders? Thanks

  38. Siôn Jones


    Thanks for getting in touch.

    We run CPCS ADT courses for novices approx every 4 – 5 weeks.

    I don’t foresee you having trouble finding work with a red card on an articulated dumptruck. This is normally more of an issue when it comes to excavators and not dumpers so much – although always better to check with your employer/ agency first.

    Our courses take place here.

    I’ve sent you an email!

    Thanks again,

  39. Ian

  43. John douglas
