1. Make sure you need Driver CPC
The first question youll need to ask yourself
is, do you really need to do your Driver CPC? It
can get a little bit cloudy sometimes around who
does or doesnt need a Driver CPC qualification.
The basic rule is that you should have Driver CPC
if you drive a lorry, bus or coach as the main
aspect of your job. However, this is a bit
undecided and there are a number of exceptions
from this rule. Click here to know about
2. Be up to the date of the rules for New Drivers
After passing a driving test for a minibus,
coach, or lorry you should then pass an
underlying Driver CPC qualification to drive for
a living. In addition to the theory and practical
test to get your driving permit, you will
additionally need to pass a computer-based and
shorter practical test to acquire your initial
Driver CPC qualification. After this, Licence
must be maintained with periodic training.
Depending on when you passed your test, you may
be able to jump directly to the periodic training.
3. Keep up your Periodic Training
The periodic training rule is there to guaranty a
constant high level of driving for drivers of
large vehicles and combat skill and knowledge
fade. To keep up your Driver CPC, you should
experience 35 hours of organized CPC training
every five years. You can do the training
whenever you need, spreading this out thru the
course of the five years. However, if you do not
finish your training by the 5-year deadline you
will not be able to drive expertly until you have
completed the full 35 hours. So effectively, you
will not be able to work.
4. Know what the course requires
You should take one of these to your Driver CPC
training course
Toward the end of the course, you will get
authentication of attendance which you should
keep safe so you have a record of when you did
your preparation.
5. Getting your Driver CPC card
Your Driver CPC card often called a DQC (driver
qualification card) will be sent to the location
on your Driver's Licence. It will utilize a
similar picture and signature as is on that. You
should carry this card with you at consistently
while driving a lorry, bus, or coach
professionally. The only exception to this is if
you have finished your 35 hours and are waiting
for your new card to be conveyed, so long as the
training centre has uploaded your hours.
6. Dont miss your Training Deadline
You cant drive professionally if you dont
complete the 35 hours by the due date. So, it is
really best to try and avoid this scenario with
good planning. However, its not the end of the
world if you do miss the deadline. You
essentially need to finish the required number of
training hours as quickly as possible. Once
complete your driver qualification card will be
put in the post and you can begin driving again.
These are some quick hints about Driver CPC that
you should keep in mind to become a professional
driver. You should have the full Driver CPC if
you drive a lorry, bus or coach as the main
aspect of your job.
