Driver CPC Training

Important information about CPC

Just holding an LGV driving licence is not sufficient for someone who wishes to drive Large Goods Vehicles for a living.

EU Directive 2003/59 requires all professional bus, coach and lorry drivers to hold a Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) in addition to their vocational driving licence. It came into force across all European Union member states on 10 September 2009 for lorry drivers.

In order to maintain your Driver CPC (and your job), all category C and D licence holders (including C, C1, C1E and D, D1, DE, D1E) must complete 35 hours Periodic Training every 5 years; without this periodic training, a driver cannot continue driving LGV’s. .

The main aim behind Driver CPC is to improve road safety; providing better qualified drivers to help reduce road casualties. Driver CPC should also bring an improved professional and positive image to the industry, attracting more people to drive buses, coaches and lorries for a living. It is aimed not only at improving the knowledge and skills of LGV and PCV drivers when they first start work, but also ensuring those skills are maintained and developed throughout the driver’s working life.

So the Driver CPC is here and the 1st 5-year anniversary is approaching fast!  Below is a number of examples  of 1 day (7 hour) courses to choose from:

  • Drivers Hours & Tachograph including Working Time Directive
  • Customer Service
  • Carriage of Dangerous Goods
  • Defensive Driving
  • First Aid for lorry drivers

Other subjects are being added all the time and courses are available for an all-inclusive cost of around £60, which includes refreshments, food and qualification uploads..

Call Alan McConville on 01706 719000 to find out more details and course information.
