Driver CPC Periodic Training

Suitable for -

All drivers of LGV vehicles

The aim of the course is -

Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) is an initiative that aims to promote safety among drivers by making regular training a mandatory requirement.

All drivers of LGV vehicles are required to undertake 35 hours of training every five years to ensure that their Driver CPC remains valid. This is applicable to any professional driver who drives vehicles over 3.5 tonnes. The minimum length of a training course that contributes to the Periodic Training requirement is 7 hours.

Failure to complete the periodic training is an offence on the part of the driver and their employer. Both parties also face being fined up to £1,000 the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has warned.

What is Periodic Training?

Periodic Training is continuing professional development for bus, coach and lorry drivers. It carries on throughout the professional driver’s career, no matter how infrequently they drive.

At ITS, we offer a range of JAUPT Approved courses, which can be used to fulfil your Driver CPC Periodic Training requirements.

This means that many beneficial courses can contribute towards Driver CPC. Combining Driver CPC Periodic Training with existing training requirements can reduce the time spent away from work.
