The Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) for drivers came into effect on the 10th September 2009 for LGV drivers.
For drivers already holding an entitlement (Categories C1, C1+E, C, C+E) there is a requirement for 'periodic training'.
This periodic training will be recorded training of 35 hours completed every 5 years. The periodic training can be completed in blocks of at least 7 hours at anytime during the 5 years, so long as the total of 35 hours is completed prior to the 5 year expiry.
In order to retain the entitlement (Categories C1, C1+E, C, C+E) this training will have to be completed by all relevant drivers. Some of the areas that drivers will cover during this training will include:
The ability to optimise fuel consumption
Make drivers aware of the risks and accidents at work
Health & Safety
Drivers hours & records
Also note that if you attend an ADR training course this can count towards your Drivers CPC. It will also save you or your company money.
Drivers CPC Prices
£80.00 + £12.75 VAT per 7 hours.
(All prices are per person and include registration fees)
