I have been in the training industry for the past 10 years gaining experience and high level qualifications. In July 2015 myself and my partner decided to branch out on our own offering high end training courses to the public. Since opening we are growing from strength to strength with a number of executive clients joining our books.

CPC Training News

Having considered the GB approach to support driver recruitment, the Department of Environment (DOE) has decided to adopt similar procedures which will come into effect from 5 October 2015.

The Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) in GB periodically received requests from members of the public, who wished to return to vocational driving, about how they can obtain a Driver Qualification Card (DQC).  DVSA considered these requests in the context of the Government’s desire to support driver recruitment and reduce the potential burden to the industry and as a result, decided to allow drivers with a full licence, issued before the introduction of Driver CPC (acquired rights drivers), to gain their first DQC via either periodic training or completion of modules two and four of the testing process.

Therefore, from 5October 2015 drivers with acquired rights (Category D1 and D issued before 10 September 2008 and category C1 and C issued before 10 September 2009) who have never held a DQC will be allowed to choose how they obtain their DQC by either taking the module two and four test or 35 hours periodic training. This provision will apply to a driver’s first DQC only – any subsequent renewal will require periodic training to be completed as per the standard process.  It is envisaged that this will have very limited impact on approved trainers as it is anticipated that more drivers may enter the industry and as such the demand for Driver CPC periodic training will ultimately be increased.

Driver CPC Course

Hi Andy,
I am just emailing to say thank you for the Driver CPC course you ran.
Given that I had not done one of these courses before the way it was delivered and administered was excellent.
The breakdown of each of the core areas was explained thoroughly and at a level I could understand.
Also your approach made me feel at ease and less stressed about the course, helping to concentrate on the matter in hand.
I will be looking to continue my training with future courses especially the banks man training.
Kind regards
Geoff Williams
