Driver CPC Training
What is Driver CPC?
The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) is a qualification that ALL vocational LGV drivers will need to hold in addition to their driving licence.
Existing LGV licence holders will be required to undertake 35 hours of Periodic Driver CPC training in every 5 year period.
All new LGV drivers will need to undertake Driver CPC before they can drive vocationally.
Drivers who passed their B licence (car) before January 1997 can choose to undertake Periodic CPC or Initial CPC.
Drivers who passed their B licence (car) after January 1997 do not have the choice, they must undertake Initial Driver CPC.
Periodic Driver CPC
Periodic CPC is classroom based and is broken down into individual 7 hour modules relating to all aspects of LGV. This is attendance based training which we carry out at our training centre.
Our seven hours JAUPT approved courses are:
- Drivers Hours and Working Time Directive
- Safety in the Transport Workplace
- Eco Safe Driving
- Safe Loading of Vehicles
- Driver Responsibilities
- Vehicle Roadworthiness
- Transporting Dangerous Goods 1,2 & 3
- First Aid (coming soon)
Also you can attend our ADR (Carriage of Dangerous Goods) course which can qualify you for 21hrs of your CPC.
Initial Driver CPC
Initial CPC is made up of 2 elements, a theory test and a practical test (much like the LGV licence).
The Driver CPC Case Study Test (MODULE 2)
This will test your knowledge by presenting a series of practical scenarios that you may meet in your work and then asks questions to test your understanding. The case study testing method is described in section four of the Official DSA Guide to Driver CPC (ISBN 978-0-11-553001-2)
The Driver CPC Practical Demonstration Test (MODULE 4)
This will test your knowledge of your vehicle and how it should be operated safely and efficiently. The test will be conducted using the vehicle you present for the test. You will be asked questions in order to demonstrate to the examiner:
- What must be done before the vehicle leaves the depot to make sure that the journey is safe
- That your driving complies with all the relevant regulations
- That your driving is carried out in an eco-efficient and environmentally-aware way. The Practical Demonstration test is in section five of the official DSA guide to Driver CPC.
