7 HOUR TRAINING SESSION each
GET QUALIFIED and STAY QUALIFIED.
You MUST have completed 35 hours (5 days) of training by the deadlines
you are an LGV/HGV driver and haven't 'got any training hours in'
by now then you're falling behind and you need to catch up.
PASS or FAIL. There
NO EXAMS or
TESTS. The DRIVER CPC is attendance only so
don't let that worry you.
it means going back to the classroom and you might not have been
in one of those for years, but it's nothing to worry about. Book
a course - Turn up - And be prepared to learn.
THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO IT.
DRIVER CPC is all about PROFESSIONAL
DEVELOPMENT. REFRESHING your knowledge, LEARNING
new skills and putting them into practice. You'd be surprised what
you've forgotten over the years. If you don't think there is anything
you can learn then think of it as a fresher course, an opportunity
to confirm that what you know is correct - especially when it comes
to the rules & regulations.
about when 'Bill at the burger van' told you 'this and that' about
the rules and regulations? Did he really know the score?
mate, I'm tellin ya, you can drive for 5 hours without no breaks
if you're on a digi card and the transport manager can't do a
thing about it! Honest - I've been doing it for years! What do
these flamin managers know eh? They aint out 'ere drivin are they?
Nah ...... trust me mate, I've been in this game long enough."
Van Law' ....... something we can all do without.
course you may be sitting there reading this and thinking it's all
your boss's problem - well you'd be wrong! The DRIVER CPC
is YOUR qualification. It's part of YOUR licence and
it's legally YOUR responsibility to get qualified.
course whoever you work for might organise DRIVER CPC
courses for you - they might even pay for it or offer you a subsidised
rate - but what if they don't? OK it means they aren't the best
boss in the world but meanwhile you need to get on with it and sort
on the CALENDAR on the left, choose
a date and book yourself on a course. With a full 7 hour course
for only £68.75 including upload fee & VAT it's
not too bad. We offer training on SATURDAY & SUNDAY as well
to help you fit it in with your working week (or book a full 5 day
course for only £255.00). (Although
remember any training may count as 'Work' and might need to be accounted
for within your working week)
- give your boss our number and ask him to call. We can arrange
courses at your place of work, during the week, at the weekend -
whatever suits. We can sort him a deal he can't refuse.
