Our drivers on previous courses received their Driver Qualification cards the week after they came on the course! We always ask drivers who are completing their 35 hours periodic training to let us know when their DQC's arrive in the post (to them direct from the DVSA). And tieing in with previous courses the average turnaround was once again 4-5 working days.
Because we upload hours straight away (either that night or next working day) the turnaround to get your DQC is very efficient when you book through us (a benefit over some other training companies where long delays have been known).
We can take your booking over the phone. Or you can complete the 3 Step process yourself online.
The process takes 10 - 12 minutes.
We can take your registration form details from your photocard part of your drivers license.
Ring Gary or Judith on 0191 5561004 or call Gary on 07544 467347.
For any bus drivers who have not completed their 35 hours, you can still come on our courses to obtain your DQC, however you must have at least a category 'C1' on your drivers licence.
We are UK DRIVER CPC NETWORK Ltd. We concentrate solely on the 35 hours of Periodic Training that drivers who already have either PCV or LGV entitlement are required to do every 5 years. We are here to find the best training solution for your business or organisation. Our trainers have been approved to deliver approved training courses for periodic training. Our aim whether it be an enquiry from an individual or a large logistics organisation is to provide the very best solution to meet your requirements.
What is Driver CPC?
The Driver CPC is for LGV and PCV drivers who drive professionally throughout the UK. It has been developed as a requirement of the EU Directive 2003/59, which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional LGV and PCV drivers throughout their working life. There are two parts to the legislation:
Existing Drivers who held a vocational licence prior to the 10th September 2008 (PCV) or the 10th September 2009 (LGV) are exempt from the Initial Qualification. This is known as "acquired rights".
All professional drivers (new and exisiting drivers) MUST complete a total of 35 hours Periodic Training every 5 years following their "acquired rights" or Initial Qualification to keep their Driver CPC valid.
DRIVERS MUST HAVE COMPLETED THEIR PERIODIC TRAINING BY:
SEPTEMBER 2013 (PCV) OR SEPTEMBER 2019 (2nd CYCLE)
SEPTEMBER 2014 (LGV) OR SEPTEMBER 2019 (2nd CYCLE)
