Driver CPC Training

Every lorry, bus or coach driver must undertake 35 hours of periodic training every five years to maintain their Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC).

This requirement will remain even as Britain exits the EU. It is illegal to continue to drive professionally without completing the training before the deadline, which is shown on your Driver CPC card.

BLT Logistics is a Driver CPC approved training provider, offering several different 7-hour CPC training modules to help you achieve the 35-hour requirement. We are also a DVSA approved Module 4 testing centre.

Driver CPC training does not need to be limited to a small set list of topics. We often work with transport operators to develop bespoke modules that meet their individual needs.
