CPC Periodic

Following on from commercial PCV drivers, on the 10th September 2009 all existing Commercial LGV drivers gained their Driver CPC (DCPC). However, in order to keep their DCPC and continue to drive professionally they must complete approved periodic training.  This can only be delivered by organisations and training providers approved by the Joint Approvals Unit Periodic Training (JAUPT). LGV Trainers is an approved training provider. If an LGV driver does not have a valid record card they cannot drive any vehicle over 3.5 tonnes professionally.

You can telephone any approved centre for advice on your planning. Most centres, including LGV Trainers, will recommend you start planning seven hours of DCPC periodic training per driver, per year. The benefits of this are as follows:-

  • Better cashflow.
  • The training and business benefits will remain current and specific to the needs of your business.
  • This helps protect the driver from poachers.
  • Reduced turnover of staff. Staff will have to be with your company for the full five years to get fully qualified and keep their DCPC.

Useful Reference Literature

To relieve your brain from the typical text heavy literature handed out at the end of the majority of classroom based courses elsewhere, we encourage delegates to make use of our own CD which we have compiled and will be handed out at the end of our courses.  Our ever growing and useful CD, contains in excess of 300 relevant booklets/documents, ensuring delegates will always have good references to return to time after time.  Instead of dog-eared photocopied books at the bottom of workbags, we also feel this is us doing our bit for the environment!
