What is Driver CPC Training?

The transport industry has recently undergone a number of major changes in its governing legislation. One of the most significant of those is the introduction of the requirement for all professional drivers of buses, coaches and lorries exceeding 3.5 tons to undertake to complete a minimum of 35 hours of professionally accredited and recognised driver training to gain their Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) qualification before September 2013 for PSV and September 2014 for HGV and LGV drivers.

So what exactly is the Driver CPC training? Well the answer is very simply training in five modules undertaken over 35 hours that are essential skills and competencies for professional drivers including:

· Drivers Hours and Tachograph including Working Time Directive

· Vehicle & Load Handling Systems

· Health & Safety, Loading/Unloading, PPE, Risk Assessments

· Principles of Safe Economic & Defensive Driving (Fuel Economy Training)

· Maintenance, Daily Checks, Speed Limits, Driving Regulations, Signs and Restrictions
