Driver CPC: Are you up to date?

On 9th September, the deadline for Driver CPC will be here. Any driver who hasn’t completed the mandatory 35 hours of periodic training by that date won’t be legally allowed to drive their LGV and faces a fixed penalty of £50 and a potential fine of up to £1000 – so it’s crucial that you’re ready.

We’ve produced a series of modules to ensure that you’re compliant and up-to-date before the 9th September on how to:

·      Load vehicles safely and securely

·      Apply the rules of professional driving, such as drivers’ hours

·      Assess emergency situations and administer first aid

·      Optimise fuel consumption

·      Prevent trafficking in illegal immigrants

As a driver, it’s your responsibility to stay legal, so if your license status is due to change – for example, a court appearance for motoring offences – or if you have been through any changes, such as points on your license, you must inform us straight away. If for any reason you don’t think you’ll be able to complete the compulsory training before the deadline, please let us know as soon as possible.
