DVSA recently issued guidance about taking the same Drivers CPC course more than once within a 5-year rolling period of your periodic training. You can only take the same course more than once in each 5-year period if you have a good reason to repeat it - for example, maintaining a dangerous goods qualification.
If you do not have a good reason, DVSA can cancel the hours you got from the course. You might also lose your Driver CPC card if cancelling the hours takes your total back under 35 hours and you can be fined.
You must do 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years to keep your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) to drive a lorry, bus or coach.
It is more important than ever that Fleet Managers keep on top of Drivers CPC to keep their drivers compliant and on the road. Fleetmaster can assist with managing your Drivers CPC and offer industry leading training alongside this.
