Whether you’re an individual private HGV driver or an employer of HGV drivers, you have no choice on whether or not you choose to undertake Driver CPC Training as:

Government legislation states that you must undertake a minimum of 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years to keep your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) Current.

Furthermore, it is illegal to drive a lorry, bus or coach professionally if you have not undertaken your training by the deadline shown on your Driver CPC card, and you can be personally fined up to £1,000.

However, you are only required to complete one set of training every 5 years if you drive both lorries and buses professionally, but you will have to undertake the training in the country where you work or normally live.

Your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) qualification will then last for up to 5 years, and in order to keep your Driver CPC you will then need to do 35 hours of training before your 5-year deadline (this deadline will be shown on your CPC card).

For more information and to check your CPC requirements see the Government Website.

So you are legally bound to provide training, BUT you can choose your training from a wide range of Driver CPC training companies and centres, so why not choose the best - Specialised Training Services - the UK’s leading driver and first aid training company!
