The Courses Details
Backed by years of experience, we offer a wide range of courses to suit different levels and needs.
From CPC to ADR training, Class 1 C+ E to Forklift training, our courses provide you with the skills you require to be a knowledgeable, safe and confident driver.
The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (DCPC) is a European Union Directive implemented in September 2009, and covers anyone licensed to drive commercial vehicles over 3.5 tonnes. Both newly-qualified and experienced drivers will have a legal responsibility to make sure they meet the requirements of the Driver CPC and carry a valid Drivers Qualification Card (DQC), once qualified.
From January 1st 2007 it became mandatory for drivers of all vehicles carrying Dangerous Goods to be trained by Department for Transport approved training providers. After sitting the approved dangerous goods training course and passing the examination, drivers receive an ADR Vocational Training Certificate (VTC) which is valid for 5 years and recognised throughout Europe. Within 12 months of the expiry date VTC holders are required to take a refresher course to bring them up to date with changes in dangerous goods legislation.
