By law, all professional lorry, bus or coach drivers, new or existing, now have to have a Driver CPC qualification and undertake 35 hours of periodic training every five years to ensure their Driver CPC entitlement remains valid. This training is designed to confirm and expand on the existing knowledge and skills each driver has and to ensure that they continue to be safe, courteous and fuel-efficient drivers.

This will also enable drivers to keep up-to-date with ever changing regulations and to benefit from training throughout their whole career.

Safedrive have over 50 independent trainers, all professionally qualified and registered Approved Driving Instructors, who run a number of modular courses aligned to the Driver CPC:-

  • Driver Behaviour & Driver Attitude
  • Fuel Efficiency
  • On Road – Driver Awareness
  • Maintenance & Safe Loading

Safedrive’s Driver CPC is designed to be delivered at a company’s premises to groups of up to 10 drivers. Our courses are delivered to your drivers at their place of work.

The 35 hours of training must be in 7 hour blocks (excluding breaks) and held by an accredited training company. JAUPT are the governing body for this and training centres must gain their accreditation from them.
