What is Driver CPC Periodic Training?
All professional bus, coach and lorry working drivers must hold a valid Driver CPC Driver Qualification Card (DQC) or CPC Card as it’s also known as.
There are two types of Driver CPC Training:
- Driver CPC Periodic Training is for existing professional drivers who already have a DQC Card and drive a lorry, bus or coach. We provide this training.
- Driver CPC Initial Training is for new professional drivers who want to drive a lorry, bus or coach and do not already have a DQC Card. We do not provide Initial CPC Traning. There is more information about this type of CPC Training further down this page.
Existing Professional Drivers and those who already have a Driver Qualification Card (Driver CPC Card) must complete 35 hours of Periodic Driver CPC Training in 5-yearly cycles consistent with CPC renewal. This training must continue until such time that this person no longer wishes to drive category C or D vehicles professionally.
And which CPC Training is right for you?
If you already have a PCV licence and passed your test before Sep 2008, or if you have an LGV (aka HGV) licence and you passed your test before Sep 2009, or if you have a C1 category and passed before 1997 then Periodic Driver CPC Training is the right training for you.
Westway CT offers Periodic Driver CPC Training only; specifically for existing DQC holders who need to participate in all, or part, of the 35 hours of training, to comply with the rules of the five-yearly renewal for refresher training.
If you’re wondering where is the best Driver CPC Training Centre, look no further. At Westway CT we offer a top-grade training which is reviewed on Google.
You have the flexibility as to how you take your 35 hours CPC training, provided this training occurs in blocks of at least seven hours at one time. You can book a 7-hour course each year, or complete all 35 hours over a 5-day period. It’s entirely up to you.
If you are unsure as to whether you have a Driver CPC exemption or you need to take part in Driver CPC Training but you do not already have a Driver CPC Card, do a Driver CPC check and see if you have any recorded hours clicking here.
