You may have heard of the term Driver CPC, but what does it actually mean? This guide explains all about what a Driver CPC is and whether or not you need to have one. If you read this guide and determine you do need a Driver CPC qualification, here at PSV Solutions we can provide full periodic training for all drivers that are required to carry a DQC (Driver Qualification Card) for their careers in driving.
Do I require CPC Training?
You must carry a DQC card if you wish to drive a lorry, bus or coach as the main part of your job. this is for all lorries exceeding 3.5 tonnes gross weight including trailers and for bus and coach drivers that generally carry over 9 passengers.
How long will my card last?
Your DQC lasts for five years.
In order to retain your Driver CPC, you will need to complete 35 hours of periodic training every five years if you want to continue driving professionally.
Your periodic training must be taken with an approved training centre.
We offer training from 3.5 hours over 2 days. This is perfect if your operation is based on a split shift, one 7 hour training day or a full 35 hour, 5 day course.
