Details correct as of Wednesday 22nd March 2017.
We have a proven track record having ensured over 1600 drivers have obtained their Driver Qualification Cards after attending our courses over the last 4 years.

Before you book elsewhere please ensure you check that the instructor has actually had experience out on the roads.

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!
We are currently holding our price at £60.00 per day. Courses elsewhere are charging up to between £80.00 and £90.00 per day.
Details correct as of March 22nd 2017.

We have now de-registered for VAT and no longer include or charge this in our price. This is due to decrease in number of drivers attending courses now that deadline (and subsequent rush period) is passed and as a company we are now below VAT threshold.

What is Driver CPC?
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)
