Farrow Training - CPC Training For HGV & PCV in Worcestershire


Driver CPC Periodic Training in the Midlands

Driver CPC – What is it?

To raise the status and standing of professional drivers, in 2003 the EU passed a directive that drivers of large vehicle, both Passenger and Freight must undertake training to improve their knowledge and skills on a regular basis throughout their driving career

To meet this requirement, all drivers have to undertake 35 hours of training every five years to build upon and expand their current knowledge. This is known as Periodic Training

Drivers completing 35 hours of training will receive their Driver CPC
