Are you ex military?

Have you already completed Modules 1+3? 

For LGV drivers who gained their C1 Category before 10th September 2009 you have what is called 'grandfather rights'. 

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 there is no date next to C1) you need Initial Driver CPC

If you are a new driver and need advice on what can seem a complicated process we can help! If you are starting from scratch and need all four modules or perhaps you have served in the armed forces and have completed Modules 1+3 and need to do the Driver CPC element (Modules 2+4) call us today 0191 5561004 ask to speak to Gary.

We take care of managing you through the booking process and provide you with a guide to enable you to revise and understand the route to become qualified and staying qualified.
