Driver CPC Module 5 – Vehicle Inspections and Driver First Response

What is Driver CPC?

The Driver CPC is a scheme for LGV and PSV drivers who drive professionally in the UK. It has been developed to meet the requirements of the EU Directive 2003/59, which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional LGV and PSV drivers throughout their working life. All drivers, new and existing, will then have to undertake 35 hours of training every five years to ensure that their Driver CPC is current. This is known as Periodic Training.


Course Description

This module is aimed at installing/refreshing the knowledge and importance of carrying out Vehicle Inspections to ensure road safety for all along with providing an understanding of Driver First Response which could help save a person’s life


Who Should Attend

Driver CPC is designed for all commercial drivers, holding a category C, C1, C+E or C1+E licence before 10 September 2009


Course Content

In the afternoon the candidates will learn about the importance of good First Response and the principles of first aid. (This is not a first aid course)


Assessment & Award

During the daily courses to measure performance and teaching the candidates will take a course quiz. There is no requirement to pass or to achieve a certain level to achieve. The only requirement is to complete 35 hours training.
