What is it?

Most drivers who wish to use their LGV or PCV vocational driving licence professionally are required by law to hold a valid Driver CPC qualification. Both drivers and the operators they work for are at risk of fines and other penalties for not holding the qualification when driving commercial vehicles.

Who should attend?

Holders of vocational lorry (category C1, C1E, C and CE) and/or bus (category D1, D1E, D and DE) licences are required by the regulations to complete 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years.

Our Driver CPC courses cover a wide range of subjects so that drivers can improve or add to their existing knowledge and skills, develop professionally and remain safe and legally compliant.  

A recommended best practise is to complete 1 day (7 hours) of training per year so that drivers may be regularly kept up to date.

Drivers who are unsure of how much training they have completed can find out here: www.gov.uk/checkdrivercpc

What does it cost?

Our Driver CPC courses cost as little as £66.00 per person per day. This price includes VAT and the DVSA upload fee so there are no hidden extras.

Initial Qualification Information

Drivers who gained their vocational licence after 9th September 2008 for PCV licences or 9th September 2009 for LGV licences may have had to pass the Driver CPC Initial Qualification in order to obtain their Drivers Qualification Card (DQC)*. If you have not gained the Initial Qualification, where required and do not have a valid DQC you cannot have any Driver CPC training hours uploaded to the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) driver database as part of the 35 hours of periodic training. Further information regarding this can be found here: www.gov.uk/become-lorry-bus-driver  

Driver CPC 4U cannot accept responsibility if you attend any Driver CPC training course and it is subsequently discovered that the training hours cannot be uploaded due to the lack of attaining the Initial Qualification. We kindly request that drivers bring their DQC (together with their Driving licence) with them when attending any Driver CPC training course at Driver CPC 4U. 

*Please note: drivers who gained their car licence before 1st Jan 1997 typically will have acquired rights for C1 and D1 licences and therefore do not have to gain the Initial Qualification.
