CPC – a legal requirement

Have your drivers met their CPC requirements? All professional drivers are required by law to undertake 35 hours of training every five years – this works out at seven hours of training every year.

Our Driver CPC is for truck and bus drivers who drive professionally throughout the UK. It has been developed as a requirement of the EU Directive 2003/59, which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional LGV drivers throughout their working life.

What this CPC course will give you:

  • Provides individuals with an insight into the underlying causes of road accidents
  • Identifies areas where individuals are most at risk on the road
  • Provides a forum for individuals to discuss their own experiences and attitude to risk taking behaviour
  • Provides details relating to economic driving
