Drivers CPC

What is Driver CPC?

Under EU Directive 2003/59 every driver that wishes to drive a vehicle with a gross weight exceeding 3½ tonnes is required to qualify for The Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence).

The purposes of this directive are:

- To improve road safety
- To enhance driver professionalism
- To improve driver productivity

What are the requirements?
All drivers must undertake 35 hours of training every 5 years.

For LGV drivers the deadline for completion of the first thirty-five hours is September 9th 2014

This is typically achieved through attendance at five daily courses

Qualification is by attendance only, there is no requirement to pass any exam at the end

What do WHT offer?
We currently offer the choice of six JAUPT Approved 3½ hour modules that can be combined to make a seven hour session:

- Customer Care
- Driver health and eco-safe driving
- Drivers' hours
- Digital Tachographs
- Driver safety at work
- Driver & vehicle safety


SAFED (7 hours, max 2 persons only)

Most courses run from 8.30 am to 4.30 pm with a half hour lunch break and two quarter hour tea breaks.

Courses can be held at either WHT's Bristol , Swanley or Andover depots or (by prior arrangement and if suitable) at a venue of your choice.

What are our charges?
