The new CPC legislation came into play in September 2009, and is regulated by Jaupt on behalf of the DVSA & DVA.
All drivers of goods vehicles (both LGV & PSV) must hold a drivers certificate of professional competence qualification. Once the Drivers CPC Training has been completed the driver will receive a driver qualification card, the driver will be required to have this on them at all times whilst driving an LGV or PSV. CPCtraining.com works with training and test centres all across the UK in over 40 locations, to deliver any Driver CPC training requirements.
HGV & PSV drivers who passed their car test prior to January 1997 will have ‘acquired rights’, this means they do not need to undertake the initial Drivers CPC Training. These drivers can simply move on to the next phase – Periodic CPC Training.
For HGV and PSV drivers who have ‘acquired rights’ or who have completed the initial Drivers CPC Training, they will need to complete 35 periodic CPC Training every 5 years. The 35 hours of periodic CPC training must be completed over 5 days. These 5 days periodic CPC training can be completed at any time throughout the 5 years, but must be 7 hours of training per day. CPCtraining.com works with training centres all across the UK and can deliver many different modules of CPC Training.
