Background to Driver CPC 

If you hold a Cat. C1, D1, C, D, or C+E licence and you wish to continue driving for a living, you need to attend 35 hours of Driver CPC Periodic Training at an Approved Centre every five years. This means five days’ training, with each day lasting 7 hours. After each day’s training, your hours will be uploaded to the JAUPT and DVSA databases.

You can check with DVSA that your hours have been uploaded correctly

https://www.gov.uk/check-your-driver-cpc-periodic-training-hours

We recommend that you check your records 10 days after your training course

You can do one day a year or all five together and once you have completed your training the new card is sent automatically as your current expiry date approaches.

We advise you not to delay in starting your training. As the September 2019 deadline approaches and both drivers and employers begin to panic, it will become increasingly difficult to find available courses!

At Driver Hire Uxbridge, our aim is to provide training in an informal, participative but meaningful way, making the whole learning process as useful and enjoyable as possible.

We are happy to run Driver CPC training anywhere within UB postcode area. Uxbridge, Denham, Hillingdon, Hayes, Northolt, Greenford, Southall, Perivale, West Drayton and beyond if you have other sites that need courses.

Our team

Welcome to Driver Hire Uxbridge                                                      
     Ed Pockney took over Driver Hire Uxbridge November 2014 and suddenly it is his 4th year and the CPC deadline in 2019 is fast approaching.
A lot has happened in that time, we extended the original office in 2016 and outgrew it entirely last year. We moved to our new office in Uxbridge in late 2017 and built the CPC Training Room in January 2018.
    
     The business has continued to grow and we still specialise in HIAB work for a variety of Builders Merchants and niche companies. The number of HIAB drivers trained continues to rise and has now passed 50.
We work with ALLMI trainers now and find that the course is a good one for beginners (two days) and refreshers (one day). We are now upskilling more of our drivers than ever before on HIAB, Moffett & Forklift.
     We are also working with Heathrow focussed hauliers and take our drivers through the Cargo Operative (old Level D) qualification. This requires verified five year work history, CRB check and then training in Air Cargo. We are confident in our compliance regime and reference checking and see this as a growing part of the business in 2018 and beyond.
 
 
 
     Office Staff: 
     Arnika Ginda,  she is the Office Manager and has over five years experience with the office. She is one of our two Polish speakers. Her commitment and  excellence has been recognised widely  within the company and she won South East Consultant of the year in 2016. She is also in charge of Clients Relations and bookings. Arnika is currently on maternity leave until early 2019, but she will always be the heart and soul of this business. 
     Magdalena Ploch has been with Driver Hire Uxbridge for over three years now and runs our payroll and invoicing department.  She is our second Polish  speaker and she is very good at what she is doing, her lovely personality always shining through. 
 
     Roxana Marian has been with Driver Hire Uxbridge for two years and she is our Romanian speaker, recruitment is one of her passion and what  she studied at  University. She is focusing on compliance and recruitment. She is looking after all the Cargo Operative / Old Level D applications. She also runs special projects like Royal Mail for the branch.
 
     Ed Pockney , As I enter my fourth year running Driver Hire Uxbridge my original idea is becoming a reality and 2018 will see the new office come fully to life. We can now deliver high quality CPC training from our office or at our customers sites. Our core business will always be supplying drivers but CPC training will be a key part of 2018 & 2019. We will also grow the number of Cargo Operative qualified drivers we have and look to work with more air freight companies.
     The key focus for my business is meeting client and candidate expectations. That we are always accessible, innovative in our responses and committed to high standards. We have built some great relationships with clients and drivers over the past few years and will look to continue that in 2018. 

Resources

Frequently asked questions

How do I book CPC courses?

For drivers you can do one day or up to five days as you need. Just call on 0203-056-7590 or email uxbridge@driverhire.co.uk and you can see our upcoming courses here.

How do I register?

You can register online via this website. Alternatively if you prefer, you can give us a call or just pop in. Quality is at the heart of all we do so we take our candidate registration process very seriously. Before we can offer you work you will need to attend a face-to-face interview.

When you come in to see us, you will need to bring certain key information with you. You must provide your National Insurance number, bank details and another form of ID such as a passport or birth certificate. Where relevant you will need to provide proof of your right to work in the UK. For driving work we need to see your original driver’s licence (both parts if a photo card) and proof of any licence upgrades you hold.

We always take up references on every candidate so please also provide phone numbers of two work related referees.

What type of work can you offer me?

We can offer you a wide range of different jobs. As well as lots of driving work, across all licence categories, we are always recruiting for many non-driving roles. Whether you are looking for part time work, a contract role or a long term career, we can help. Check out our online jobs board, phone or call in to find out more.

Can you arrange CPC Training for our drivers?

Yes, we can arrange everything from a complete solution for a multi-site customer with 100+ drivers to a single days training to top up a driver’s CPC training. Call us on 0203-056-7590 or email to discuss exactly what you need.

Can you arrange other training such as HIAB, Moffett, Forklift or Cargo Operative (old Level D)?

Yes, we work with a number of local trainers and can arrange training at your site on your equipment or at a third party venue. We invest a lot in training and upskilling our drivers and are happy to help any client do the same.

Are all your drivers fully compliant with relevant legislation?

Nothing is more important to Driver Hire than safety and full regulatory compliance. All Driver Hire drivers have to take a 150-point competency test before they are allowed to work for us and we provide ongoing updates on new rules and regulations as they are introduced. We also have bespoke IT systems in place to monitor the work our staff do for us.

You can be confident that any member of staff you take on from Driver Hire has been fully briefed on any relevant legislation.

Can you help me out at short notice?

Absolutely. Some people say it’s what we do best. As the UK’s leading specialist supplier of transport and logistics staff, we have an extensive database of high quality candidates ready to step in and help you out. 

You can call us any time of the day or night, 365 days a year and speak to a real person on the other end of the line. We know the pressures you are likely to operate under, so will take down the details of the person you need and if we can’t tell you instantly who we have available, we will get back to you within 15 minutes with a definite answer either way.

Can you help me with non-driving roles?

Yes. Driver Hire is about much more than driving. We can help you find the ideal candidate for just about any role connected with the transport and logistics industry. That includes drivers of course, but also warehouse staff, operations and back office roles, plant operatives, managerial staff and much more. Check out ‘Looking for Staff’ for more information.

Do you just provide temps?

No. Our experience in the industry and our extensive candidate database means we are ideally placed to help you find long-term contract staff and of course, permanent employees. Our permanent recruitment service operates on a no success no fee basis and is backed up by generous guarantees.
