NB HPA recognised 4x4 emergency response driver entitlement: Please note that unless you specifically supply 4x4 training evidence or contact us to discuss 4x4 entitlement by default 4x4 will not be included on your HPA blue light drivers licence card. A certificate orsigned statement from a recognised NHS driver trainer stating that you have been specifically trained in a blue light scenario to operate the vehicle using four wheel drive on low friction surfaces such as snow, mud and off road must be supplied. *Being trained in normal conditions using a 4x4 capable vehicle does not qualify as specialist 4x4 emergency response driver training.
