Driver CPC Courses Online and "In Person" (Now back On)

Last Updated: 28th October 2020

To book your Driver CPC course over the phone call 0191 5561004 or click here

Welcome to UK Driver CPC Network Ltd. We are an established Driver CPC training company since 2013 we have delivered over 40,000 periodic training hours to more than 5000 drivers. We also work with other network partners across the United Kingdom to find the training solution that's right for you.

Classroom based Driver CPC Courses are back on.
Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) have approved remote delivery of Driver CPC Periodic Training 'until further notice'.

SO NOW DRIVERS HAVE A CHOICE BETWEEN BEING ABLE TO CHOOSE FROM BOTH
1. CLASSROOM AND 2. ONLINE CPC COURSES

We are now delivering Driver CPC remotely after our consortium (RTITB) were given approval by DVSA to proceed with this. It will involve drivers 'attending' from home by webcam using the free to download "Zoom" app. Using this virtual technology drivers can attend and remain legal. It's still 7 hours per day and the usual checks will apply. Also an auditor will be able to monitor whether 'attendees' are in 'attendance'. This is a modern, practical and sensible approach to ensuring drivers receive training, whilst still protecting the health and safety of the workforce, through remote course delivery. Places are limited to only 12 drivers per course. If you are interested please click here and enter your details in the usual way.

So, we are now taking bookings for CPC from home courses AND for drivers who would rather visit training centres 'in person' (observing government social distancing measures). Spaces are limited. For online courses you will need to be familiar with the 'Zoom' web cam app. Click Here to register an interest.

Using our nationwide network partners we can book you on to webinar courses ran Sunderland, Team Valley, Gateshead, Sheffield, and Gloucester.

We have a simple 3 step booking process if you need to find a course near you.

Price on all courses per driver per day £80.00 includes VAT and upload.

We are your local approved training centre. We run our own Driver CPC Courses in Sunderland. Our courses over the past few years have mainly been at The Industry Centre SR5 3XB, however we do work with other approved training centres to find the best solution for you. To book on any of our courses call 0191 5561004 or click here and fill in your details and we will call you. All of our courses are JAUPT approved and provided to us by R.T.I.T.B. In fact a complete new syllabus came out recently. The new course modules will provide more interaction with the drivers and no more "death by Powerpoint".

We have a proven track record having ensured over 5000 drivers have obtained their Driver Qualification Cards after attending our courses over the last 7 years. Great feedback, and we have a policy of only using instructors who have experience driving LGV's!

Before you book elsewhere please ensure you check that the instructor has actually had experience out on the roads.

Drivers are reminded they can still attend a Driver CPC course to gain accrue the 35 hours periodic training required. Once uploaded drivers are then able to drive again whilst waiting for their D.Q.C. to arrive in the post. This is sent direct to each drivers address detailed on their drivers license from the D.V.S.A. Drivers can expect to receive their D.Q.C. from the D.V.S.A. in Newcastle-upon-Tyne within 5-6 working days of attending the course. You do however have to have at least 7 hours training complete before you can create your online account (to view your uploaded hours online).

Ring Gary on 07544 467347 or 0191 5561004 to get booked on to our next course more.. We are now planning future courses online for drivers in Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield and eleswhere.  Simply fill in our Step 1 enquiry form

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.

Step 2 of our booking process is to take your drivers licence details from your photocard part of your drivers licence.

Ring Gary or Judith on 0191 5561004 or call Gary on 07544 467347.

* This is an LGV Course. PCV Drivers who work driving both truck and bus can still attend this course however and gain their 35 Hours Periodic Training only if they have a Category C, C1 , C1E or CE on their 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.

The 3 main benefits to you in taking your Driver CPC sooner rather than later are:-

1. You will beat the undoubted 'bottleneck' (in Sept 2019) of drivers and companies that are leaving it till the last minute!

2. You will beat any increase in prices when demand outstrips supply!

3. You will be more competitive in the marketplace for work as your competitors drivers will be tied up in the classroom! 

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:

The 35 hours are classroom based theory. Complete the 35 hours satisfactorily and you gain your certificates, then you get your Driver Qualification Card sent to you direct from Driving & Vehicle Standards Agency.

The Initial Qualification must be achieved by new LGV and PCV drivers along with their vocational licence to enable them to use their licence professionally.

Periodic Training; 35 hours of training every 5 years must be attended by all professional drivers .

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)

OR BY THE EXPIRY DATE ON YOUR DRIVER QUALIFICATION CARD

(IF YOU QUALIFIED INITIALLY OUTSIDE OF THE SCOPE OF THE MAIN CYCLE OF DRIVERS)


If you drive for a company or manage a company in the United Kingdom we can facillitate this training either at your premises or at one of our various locations around the country. We cover London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Derby, Nottingham, Leicester, Sunderland, Bradford, Wakefield, Portsmouth, Southampton.
