Driver CPC Training London South East

Driver Hire is now the largest provider of Driver CPC in the UK. We aim to be the best and most cost effective solution for all of your Driver CPC training needs.

Driver CPC information

The Driver CPC is for professional LGV and PCV drivers. It is a requirement of EU Directive 2003/59, which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of drivers, and enhance safety on our roads.

All professional drivers, driving 'for hire and reward' (on licence categories C, C1, C+E or C1+E for goods vehicles) are now required to have completed their Driver CPC and must carry a Driver Qualification Card (DQC) at all times when driving professionally.

Driver CPC training is an ongoing requirement. The DQC is valid for five years, and having gained their card, all drivers must undertake 35 hours' periodic training during those five years, or they will not be permitted to renew their card. 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.

* There are a small number of exemptions but the Driver CPC has been compulsory for most professional drivers since 10th September 2014

Driver CPC courses

Driver Hire London South East are able to deliver CPC training courses in the London area. We also provide refreshments throughout the day on all our open driver CPC courses.

Alternatively, Driver Hire London South East can arrange driver CPC courses to be held at your premises. The courses can be tailored to your needs. (Minimum of 6 attendees are required).

*** We charge £75 for 7 hours of CPC training per person. This charge includes all training costs, materials, upload fees and VAT. ***
