All drivers who are driving vehicles over 3.5 tonnes, or with 9 Passenger seats or more are required to do the Periodic / Driver’s CPC (as well as the initial where applicable) – 35 Hours of drivers CPC training every five years.
Before the course starts you will need to provide your driving licence number & once the course is finished, we will log your hours as normally
Certain drivers do not require to have the drivers Certificate of Professional Competence – These are either based on what the vehicle is transporting, or what the vehicle is used for. Drivers are exempt if the vehicle is:
** For example, transporting scaffolding to the drivers place of work. Driving must not become the major part of the work. IE – The work being carried out at the site of work, must be a significantly greater use of time than driving itself.
We have the following courses that are CPC approved:
Following a review by the EU Commission, it has been decided that the Driver CPC directive will now specify that ‘a range of different subjects should be covered over the 35 hours.’
This means that drivers can no longer repeat modules in the course of attaining their required 35 training hours over a rolling five-year period.
We have both Classroom Based Driver’s CPC and Online Based courses available for you to choose from.
If you choose to complete either our Classroom or Online courses, both will count towards the required 35 hours of CPC training that you need to complete every 5 years as a professional driver.
I've just completed five days of cpc training with 2 Start and it's been very enjoyable, informative and a well designed course with excellent instructors and a great bunch of guys on the course. The five days went quickly because of the interesting topics, videos and debates. Definitely recommend 2 Start Training. Thank you.
I've done my CPC Training with 2 Start in Aldermaston in which I found the training to be brilliant. The training instructors were very friendly and were happy to answer questions that were raised during the course. I will be booking with 2 Start again to carry out more training.
Best training provider. Done class 1 and buses and past first time every time. CPC training is never boring. Best instructors and always good laugh.
Done myself CPC courses with them great customer service
After 24 years service in the Armed Forces. 2 Start have been able to provide and deliver the skills required for my next career in road haulage. Prices are competitive and the training is executed in a professional but friendly manner that for me ensured successful completion of my ADR course, CPC and Class 2. Many thanks to Paul, Daisy, Ken, Robin, Don and all the rest of your team. See you again soon. Mickey
