We understand that, for some, the classroom environment can be daunting. Therefore, we tailor each and every session to the drivers in the room, whether you are starting out your career in the transport industry or are a seasoned professional driver. We are passionate about making our courses engaging as we believe there is no point in boring, uninspiring teaching.

Each 7 hour session counts towards the total 35 hours of periodic training needed to update your DQC.

We ensure that all our modules are suitable for everyone, from experienced professional drivers to those just starting out in the transport industry

Who Needs CPC Training?

One of the most common questions we get from our students is, “who needs CPC training?” The simple answer for professional lorry, bus, and coach drivers is 'everyone'. The key word here is 'professional' - or in simple terms are you being paid for your services?

Our Periodic Driver CPC Courses are designed for professional drivers who already have the initial driver CPC for professional lorry, bus or coach driving (PCV or HGV licenses). Once obtained, every driver needs to update their Driver CPC card (DQC) within a 5 year period, by completing 35 hours of Periodic Driver CPC approved training. This is an attendance and participation CPC training course involving NO test. We have a suite of 12 Jaupt accredited modules, such as “Driver first aid at work” and “Drivers hours, WTD and tachographs”, applied to real-life scenarios to ensure that you get the most out of each session.
