DRIVER CPC

Book a course for you or your team online, or talk to us about customising an in-house solution for your business.

The driver CPC qualification improves the knowledge and skills of professional LGV and PCV drivers throughout their working life, giving them the tools to remain safe and compliant on the road.

Every employee who wishes to drive professionally needs 35 hours of JAUPT approved CPC training to keep their Driver’s Qualification Card valid. While drivers are responsible for gathering all the necessary qualifications and training to meet their driver CPC requirements, employers must keep a record of their drivers’ training and further training requirements to ensure their fleet is compliant and protect themselves from liability.

HGVC is the trusted, reliable leaders in driver CPC training: you won’t find a provider that combines enthusiasm for driver training with expertise, knowledge , and thorough approach to professional driver development. In addition to keeping you compliant, we focus on delivering a great candidate experience and courses with a guaranteed return on investment.
