Driver CPC Courses

Choosing the right courses for your business

Our Driver CPC courses are for LGV and PCV drivers who drive professionally throughout the UK and are delivered as 7 hour modules or two 3.5 hour modules, providing that the second 3.5 hour session starts within 24 hours of the end of the first 3.5 hour session. Our courses have been developed as a requirement of the EU Directive 2003/59 which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional LGV and PCV drivers throughout their working life.

You can combine two modules of your choice which are relevant to your operations to make up a seven hour course for example, Module A – Drivers Hours plus Module E Loading, Manual Handling.
All modules begin with an optional introduction of initial and periodic Driver CPC, and the Driver Qualification Card.
