Highly Experienced Local Drivers
Achieve your initial CPC qualification
The Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) is now a legal requirement for all commercial drivers holding Category C and D driving licences. The CPC consists of two parts: a theoretical training module, which covers topics such as traffic laws, vehicle maintenance, and driver health and safety; and a practical training module, which focuses on developing driving skills and road awareness. Drivers must renew their CPC every five years to maintain their professional competency. If you are training to become a newly-qualified professional driver and you’re looking to obtain your first Category C or D licence, initial CPC training is necessary to supplement your theory and practical skills and help you pass the test.
A word of warning – you could be fined up to £1,000 if you are caught driving professionally without having taken your initial CPC training. Your local NxtGen commercial driving instructor is on-hand to undertake initial CPC training sessions at times and dates to fit around your other commitments.
Arrange your periodic CPC training
Remember, as a professional driver with a Category C or D licence, you must undertake 35 hours of periodic CPC training every five years to maintain your Driver CPC. Failure to do so could see you lose your job and face fines of up to £1,000.
Your local NxtGen commercial driving instructor is here to help you stay on top of your game and iron out any bad habits in your driving technique. As approved training providers, we can offer the full remedial CPC training programme to help you maintain a valid CPC card for the next five years.
