The deadline of the 9th September 2014 for completion of Driver CPC training for professional drivers of lorries exceeding 3.5 tons is now only 9 months away. It is therefore imperative that if you employ HGV or LGV drivers that you ensure that this training has been completed before this deadline to avoid hefty fines which can affect both your company and your drivers, and which VOSA have the power to enforce.
VOSA have warned that for those who do not comply with Driver CPC training that they will issue fixed penalty notices which may also be referred to the traffic commissioners. This action could result in the traffic commissioners suspending the driver’s vocational entitlement until Driver CPC training has been completed.
VOSA have also stated that they will contact the haulage operator who employs the non-compliant driver to ascertain why they have failed to provide Driver CPC training, with the possibility of the operator being taken to account at a public inquiry and action against their licence.
With this hard line being taken by VOSA and the traffic commissioners it is vital that you book your employees onto a Driver CPC training course as soon as possible and there is no better company to choose to provide this training than ACE Trainers of Basingstoke.
