Under a European Union Directive, professional drivers of lorries over 3.5 tonnes or Passenger Carrying Vehicles (PCV) with 9 or more seats must get a Driver CPC in addition to a vocational driving licence.
New drivers get their Driver CPC by passing a series of initial qualification tests with both theory and practical sections.
Whether you’re a new driver or already qualified, we offer bespoke training within our in-house training facility at Coney Green Business centre, Chesterfield.
All drivers need to complete 35 hours of periodic training every five years on an ongoing basis to keep driving for a living. Drivers can check their Driver CPC periodic training record online to see how many hours they have done.
Periodic training attend courses over the five-year period for which their current Driver CPC is valid. There is no pass or fail element to these tests. The minimum length of a training course is seven hours, although they may be longer.
Driver CPC courses must be approved by JAUPT. The training provider will upload the driver’s completed training hours to the DVSA website.
Drivers of both PCV and LGV vehicles only need to do one set of periodic training every 5 years.
We work with the leading associations and accrediting bodies to ensure all our courses comply with the latest HSE legislation and industry best practice.
The training we provide is focused & designed around YOU, the customer, every decision we take is based on how it will affect our customers. This is what makes us different from our competitors.
