Driver CPC Training Courses in the North East of England
Details correct as of Wednesday August 24th 2016.
All of our courses are JAUPT approved and provided to us by R.T.I.T.B. In fact a complete new syllabus came out recently. The new course modules will provide more interaction with the drivers and no more "death by Powerpoint".
If this doesn't apply to you, you are a 'New Driver'.
Check on the back of your drivers licence in column 10 next to C1.If the date is after 10/09/09 (or their is no date next to C1) you need Initial Driver CPC click here for more...
Drivers who still haven't completed their first cycle of CPC are now struggling to find full 5 days courses.
Not only that, as most drivers are now qualified, less drivers are out their to fill up spaces on any remaining courses.
And the inevitable has happened ..prices for remaining seats on the last few courses are begining to rise sharply!
Monday 12th September to Friday 16th September 2016.
Also At The Industry Centre SR5 3XB in Sunderland. SPACES STILL AVAILABLE!

Our drivers on previous courses received their Driver Qualification cards the week after they came on the course! We always ask drivers who are completing their 35 hours periodic training to let us know when their DQC's arrive in the post (to them direct from the DVSA). And tieing in with previous courses the average turnaround was once again 4-5 working days.
Because we upload hours straight away (either that night or next workng day) the turnaround to get your DQC is very efficient when you book through us (a benefit over some other training companies where long delays have been known).
We can take your booking over the phone. Or you can complete the 3 step process yourself online.
The process takes 10 - 12 minutes. We can take your registration form details from your photocard part of your drivers license.
Ring Gary or Judith on 0191 5561004 or call Gary on 07544 467347.
For any bus drivers who have not completed their 35 hours, you can still come on our courses to obtain your DQC, however you must have at least a category 'C1' on your drivers licence.

What is Driver CPC?
The Driver CPC is for LGV and PCV drivers who drive professionally throughout the UK. It has been developed as a requirement of the EU Directive 2003/59, which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional LGV and PCV drivers throughout their working life. There are two parts to the legislation:The 35 hours are classroom based theory. Complete the 35 hours satisfactorily and you gain your certificates, then you get your Driver Qualification Card sent to you direct from Driving & Vehicle Standards Agency.
- The Initial Qualification must be achieved by new LGV and PCV drivers along with their vocational licence to enable them to use their licence professionally.
- Periodic Training; 35 hours of training every 5 years must be attended by all professional drivers .
Existing Drivers who held a vocational licence prior to the 10th September 2008 (PCV) or the 10th September 2009 (LGV) are exempt from the Initial Qualification. This is known as "acquired rights".
All professional drivers (new and exisiting drivers) MUST complete a total of 35 hours Periodic Training every 5 years following their "acquired rights" or Initial Qualification to keep their Driver CPC valid.
DRIVERS MUST HAVE COMPLETED THEIR PERIODIC TRAINING BY: SEPTEMBER 2013 (PCV) OR SEPTEMBER 2019 (2nd CYCLE)
SEPTEMBER 2014 (LGV) OR SEPTEMBER 2019 (2nd CYCLE)
