Driver Hire Blackburn
Driver CPC Training
The Driver CPC is for professional LGV and PCV drivers. It is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of drivers, and enhance safety on our roads, as a requirement of EU Directive 2003/59.
We can offer you and your drivers Periodic CPC training. On this we offer you the opportunity to put drivers on our open courses. This allows them to gain useful insights from other people on their course.
By spreading the training out over a number of years you are also showing an ongoing training schedule for your staff as well as ensuring that there is value in the training they are receiving as opposed to just ticking a box.
New LGV drivers gaining a category C, C1, C+E or C1+E licence now have to obtain the initial Driver CPC in addition to their licence to drive professionally. They must then undertake periodic training every 5 years to keep their Driver CPC valid. There are some exemptions but the Driver CPC is now compulsory for most professional drivers. Training must be undertaken in 7-hour blocks and the best way for any driver to meet their obligations is to spread their training across several years.
If you haven’t used Driver Hire before, you may also be wondering how to keep your fleet moving while your drivers are in training. Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be delighted to supply high quality drivers to cover for them.
