Our Driver CPC courses are designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of professional drivers.
The Drivers Certificate of Professional Competence (DCPC) scheme has been developed to meet the requirements of the EU Directive 2003/59, which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional LGV drivers throughout their working life. All LGV drivers, new and existing, must undertake 35 hours of training every five years in order to maintain their Driver CPC.
All of our courses are run by our DSA approved Driver Development Manager in our training suite at our depot in Sittingbourne. The training is JAUPT (Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training) approved and accredited by the RTITB, so you can be assured of the highest standards.
