Driver CPC Training in Bradford
A specialist provider of transport and logistics recruitment services, Driver Hire have a long-established reputation for supplying the very best staff to our customers throughout the UK.
We like to be sure that our drivers are fully up to date with their responsibilities and obligations. For many years we have provided them with training on the major issues of the day – from their working time or rest breaks obligations, to fuel efficient driving. Our customers know they can trust us to deliver.
The Driver CPC provides a great opportunity for us to offer our award-winning training services to a wider audience.
Driver CPC – What’s it all about?
The Driver CPC is for professional LGV and PCV drivers. It is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of drivers, whilst enhancing their safety on our roads, as a requirement of EU Directive 2003/59.
Existing LGV drivers benefit from ‘acquired rights’ and do not have to take a fresh driving test. However, they must undertake 35 hours’ periodic training before 10 September 2014 to keep their Driver CPC valid.
New drivers gaining a category C, C1, or C+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 over several years.

Driver CPC from the experts

We understand the challenges that face people working in this industry, so our service has been designed to make everything as simple as possible.
It’s not enough just to ‘meet your obligations’. We wanted to make sure that as well as helping drivers obtain their CPC training, their employers benefited too. So we have designed our courses to make sure that they are time well-invested for drivers and employers alike.
Our Fuel Efficient Driving course is a great example of this – with the potential to deliver significant savings in one of the most costly parts of your business.
If you haven’t used Driver Hire before, you may also be wondering how to keep your fleet moving while your drivers are training.
Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be delighted to supply high quality of drivers to cover for them.
We can make payment easy too, with a range of payment options available.
We won’t pin you down to a particular date or make your drivers travel miles for their training. We’ll work with you to find a date and venue that suits your business.
We can even come to you, if you have appropriate facilities. We also give you a choice of modules so you can choose the subjects that you think will be most useful.
