The field of public transportation has become, within a relatively short time, a rapidly developing and growing field with enormous possibilities. The program is varied and designed to train professionals in a wide range of subjects, designed to meet the needs and growing requirements of public transportation. Upon completion of all course requirements students will be eligible to a Driver’s license type D and D1 for public transportation vehicles, including taxis and buses.

How does the registration process work?

  1. Students should go to the nearest camera store and ask for a Driver’s License application for taxi or bus, and have their photo taken.
  2. Use this Application Form to perform an eye-examination by an optometrist and an eye-check up at the family doctor and have them sign the application form.
  3. At the Motor Licensing Office (DMV), request to apply for a public transport driver’s license. (please fill three of their forms and sign each one separately).
  4. Arrive at the College registration office with all forms, Green and DMV, a valid driver’s license, an identity card with your address information, a school certificate or other equivalent document relating to your school education, and a registration fee for the amount of NIS 200.

The DMV College in Haifa will be responsible for processing your forms and summon you to a professional diagnostic check at the Milo Institute in Haifa. Allow for three months for processing your results. The college will contact you once you have successfully completed the process!

That same interest

Students can register for driving lessons with a private teacher only after they have successfully passed theory examinations by the DMV. The exam for public transportation credentials by the Ministry of Industry can be taken upon completion of the college program.
