Driver CPC Don't Miss the Bus!

You have just 1 year left to complete the 35 hours of periodic training to keep your Driver CPC if you're a bus or coach driver and got your vocational licence before 10 September 2008.Since Driver CPC was introduced, over half a million professional drivers across the goods and passenger sectors have taken accredited periodic training. This is to further develop their knowledge and skills and help make sure they remain safe and responsible drivers throughout their career.
Periodic training coursesThere are now over 3,000 approved training courses available to drivers. They cover a range of topics from fuel efficiency to tachograph and drivers' hours regulations or defensive driving.All courses and providers have to meet strict criteria. They are both quality-checked on an ongoing basis, to make sure they meet the required standard.
Don't leave it until the last minuteDSA chief executive, Rosemary Thew, said:"I would urge all drivers who haven't yet started periodic training not to leave it until the last minute. If the deadline arrives and you drive professionally without a Driver CPC, you'll be committing an offence."If you're an operator and you cause or allow your drivers to drive without Driver CPC - you'll also be committing an offence."The idea of drivers completing regular training throughout their working life is not new - many have been doing it for years through operators who recognise the benefits of drivers developing their skills; helping to boost productivity as well as improve road safety."
