Scheduling Your Course

Course Location

Courses can be run on your premises anywhere in the UK if you are able to provide a suitable training room that meets the basic JAUPT requirements, we will check the suitability of the room prior to the course. We can also provide all audio visual equipment.

We suggest that you provide refreshments during the day for courses delivered on your premises.


Course Timings & Structure

Our standard courses generally run between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. though we also accommodate earlier starts when requested by some of our clients. A full seven hour session must be completed in one day, however the seven hours can also be completed over two days providing that the second 3.5 hour session starts within 24 hours of the end of the first 3.5 hour session.

Our courses run during the normal working week and on Saturdays and can accommodate up to 20 delegates on one course.


Scheduling your Training & the 35 Hours Requirement

PCV drivers need to complete their 35 hours of training by September 2013. LGV drivers need to complete their 35 hours of training by September 2014.

The 35 hours can be phased over this period to suit you e.g. 7 hours per year for five years, or 35 hours in one year prior to the respective deadlines i.e. 2013 or 2014, or any combination so long at the 35 hours is completed before these deadline dates for PCV or LGV drivers.


Attendance & DSA Registration

Drivers must attend the full seven hours of training to qualify for having their seven hours attendance uploaded to the DSA register. Drivers failing to attend the full seven hours will not have their details registered with the DSA so even their partial attendance will not count. Late arrivals or early leavers will not be registered as having attended.

Drivers completing seven hours training will have their details uploaded to the DSA register.

Once a driver has completed 35 hours of training, the DSA will immediately issue a Driver Qualification Card (DQC) which is sent to the driver’s home address.


Driver licences

Please note that on the day of the course we will need proof of ID for every delegate. This can be a photo card licence plus the paper counterpart. Or it can be an old style paper licence plus a current passport. No other forms of ID are acceptable. If we are not able to verify identity by seeing either of these forms of ID on the day we will not be able to upload the 7 hours accreditation onto the DSA database.
