GETTING AND KEEPING YOUR DRIVER'S QUALIFICATION CARD

Driver CPC Wales

Driver CPC Wales Ltd. has been awarded 'Centre Accreditaton' as a provider of Driver CPC periodic training by 'JAUPT'*, the joint approvals unit for periodic training. As such, we have become the first training organisation in Ceredigion to win accreditation for a Driver CPC programme that will be delivered entirely by our own in-house team of driver training specialists.

Who does CPC affect?

If you already hold a Bus, Coach or Lorry driving licence you will have 'aquired rights' valid for 5 years from the initiative's start date (10 Sept 08) and will not need to hold a driver CPC during that period however, you will need to start working towards it if you wish to continue driving beyond Sept 2013.

What is Periodic Training?

Periodic training is regular training that will continue throughout your professional driving career to help you as a driver and to encourage safe driving for life.

EVERY professional driver will need to complete 35 hours of 'periodic training'

There is a range of DSA approved courses available with training tailored to suit your individual needs to help you become an even better driver. The training is grouped under 3 headings..

  • Safe and fuel efficient driving (this may include vehicle loading, fuel consumtion and pollution)
  • Legal requirements (rules for tachograph, drivers hours)
  • Health & Safety, service & logistics (including first aid, passenger safety, customer services)

* The 'JAUPT' organisation has been created and is managed by two skills sector councils (SSC) in a partnership agreement sectioned by the Driving Standards Agency. The two SSC's are 'Skills For Logistics' which serves the freight transport industry and 'Goskills' which covers passenger transport.
