No. The modules can be taken in any order, in fact the current set up by the Government allows you to take the same module five times. For obvious reasons we do not recommend this – it is your course and we want you to gain as much from your training as you can.
Yes everything is included. Unlike some organisations, we do not look to give you a low price only to add VAT and upload fees later. £65 is the total cost for the day, inclusive of VAT and upload fees….and no, we don’t charge for pen and paper like one company we have heard about!
No! Feel free to dip your toe in the water! Understandably there was an initial reluctance from drivers to engage with the Government’s introduction of Driver CPC. Some drivers were unsure of a return to the classroom and their ability to sit for an entire day! We have had many people book just for one day, to then realise that with friendly instructors, regular breaks (tea / coffee / biscuits provided) and the opportunity to mingle with fellow drivers, the experience isn’t so bad. Would it be too far to suggest some sceptics have even enjoyed the courses?
Definitely not! There is a huge variance in the quality of courses, venues and instructors! Ask your fellow drivers who they would recommend. Our course feedback sheets show that drivers have been genuinely impressed by the suitability of our training venues and the professional manner in which the courses are delivered. We have also worked hard to ensure the course syllabus is relevant and informative, resulting in every driver leaving the course with a much enhanced knowledge base.
Each day is 7 hours’ worth of training, with a morning, lunch and afternoon break. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided.
No! Gaining the Driver Qualification Card (DQC) is purely attendance based – there is no test. Attendance is sufficient to gain the DQC
Yes you can. DVSA has developed and launched a new online enquiry service for professional drivers. This service allows lorry, bus and coach drivers working towards their Driver CPC to go online to check their records of the periodic training they have done.
You can access the service 24 hours a day. It provides a clear and simple online record, showing your Driver CPC qualification expiry date for bus, coach and/or lorry and the details of each training course you have completed.
You can register to use the service at www.direct.gov.uk/checkdrivercpc
