Driver CPC Training

If you’re looking to take the next step in your career by undertaking driver CPC training, simply give Wayside Transport a call today to find out how we can help. In recent years, Driver CPC certification became a standard part of driving where the vehicle being operated is a bus, lorry or coach. Established by the EU, the Driver CPC certification is a set of standards designed to ensure proficiency and competency among all professional drivers.

With a few exceptions, any driver that currently holds a Category C or Category D licence must undergo driver CPC training. At Wayside Transport, we recommend that even if you feel that you’re exempt, you should still consider undertaking this training to ensure that you’re up-to-speed with current legal requirements.

Will I Require CPC Training?

If you’re planning on driving lorries, buses and coaches, then the short answer is yes – you will need Driver CPC Training. There are exceptions, for instance, if you’re operating vehicles as part of the armed forces, police, fire brigade or a civil defence organisation then you may not necessarily require this training.
Other exceptions can include but are not limited to individuals operating a vehicle for the non-commercial carriage of passengers or goods. Or, transporting materials or equipment which is deemed essential for your work where this would usually not fall under your job description.

There are other exceptions which may apply, and if you’re unsure as to whether any of these apply to you, we’ll be happy to advise you.

You will require Driver CPC Training, however, if you’re planning to operate any of the following:

• Articulated Lorries
• Bin Lorries
• Buses
• Coaches
• Heavy Construction Equipment
• Tipper Trucks

Even operators of HGVs and PCVs require Driver CPC Training as the practical differences are relatively minor.

Periodic Training

Wayside Transport will be hosting weeks of CPC training at our premises. The training will be for LGV/ PCV drivers and will take place at our purpose-built facility in Ferndown, Dorset. In short, all drivers who have completed their Driver CPC Training will be issued with a CPC card. This card must be renewed once every five years.
To renew your card for another five years, periodic training must be undertaken, and this usually consists of around 35 hours of classroom-based study. If you’re an experienced and qualified LGV/ PCV driver wishing to work in either haulage or passenger markets, you will need to complete or keep yourself up to date with your CPC training.

We can assist you with the training for this with an understanding approach. All our trainers are focused on your needs and requirements and are fully approved and endorsed to provide training which is considered to be the best that
the industry has to offer. We are centrally located in Dorset with easy access from Southampton, Hampshire and Wiltshire via the A31.

CPC Initial Training

All drivers seeking to obtain their first Category C or D licence must undertake training which includes Driver CPC training. A ‘Certificate of Professional Competence’ combines with theory test preparation and practical instruction to form the backbone of what will be the Initial CPC Qualification. Unless we partake in Driver CPC training, you won’t be able to legally operate commercial vehicles.

Here at Wayside Transport, we have you covered with a range of courses starting in November 2018 and running right through to August 2019. Spaces are limited, so we recommend that you get in touch with our team today to book your place in order to avoid disappointment. If you have any questions or require more information about our Driver CPC Training, give Wayside Transport a call today on 01202 873 911.
