Yes, paramedics drive the Ambulance. Paramedics both treat patients and drive the Ambulance. In general, paramedics take it in turns each day to treat or drive the Ambulance. Most paramedics enjoy their driving days because it makes an easier day for them in which they can rellax. Many paramedics argue that they only really work half the time (because all they have to do every second day is drive the Ambulance).
Can you be a paramedic and not drive the Ambulance? No, most Ambulance Services require the paramedic to be licenced and capable of driving the Ambulance. If a paramedic loses his or her licence they become unable to work and often lose their job. Many paramedics have lost their licence and consequently their job and the same time. This is why it is important to maintain a clean driving record if you want to become a paramedic.
