Driver CPC Module 3- Health & Safety and Personal Wellbeing

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

The module is aimed at providing the candidates suitable grounding in driver health and safety around their vehicles and the work place and of their own personal wellbeing to ensure they stay Fit to Drive.

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

During the morning the candidates will cover various health and safety topics that affect their everyday lives working with heavy goods vehicles such as hazards in and around goods vehicles, CoSHH, PPE, noise, etc.

In the afternoon the candidates will cover topics that can affect a Driver’s Wellbeing by travelling through drink, drugs, fatigue, sleep issues, healthy exercises, good posture whilst driving and diabetes.

At the end of the day candidates will have the opportunity to leave feedback about the course and will be presented with their certificate of attendance.

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. The only requirement is to complete 35 hours training.

At the end of the course the candidate will be presented with a certificate of attendance from Lighthouse Safety Training. Once all 35 hours has been achieved the driver qualification card will automatically be sent out by the Driving Standards Agency.

Please note that drivers who hold the old style paper licence will need to apply for a photo licence as soon as possible  as your driver qualification card cannot be issued until you have done this.  Please follow this link to get started. 

Duration

This is one of 5 individual days that can be completed; each day consists of 7 hours of instruction. Each day will start at 8.30 am – 5 pm.

Cost

Individual days training are offered starting at £65 + VAT; this can vary for in-house courses (dependant on location and numbers etc).

Venue

We run open Driver CPC courses regularly in our training centre in Rainham, Kent. We are happy to travel to your location if suitable facilities are available.

A Polite Notice

It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking a Drivers CPC Course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully accredited to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work. Lighthouse Safety Training are fully accredited by JAUPT  to provide the Drivers CPC and proof of that accreditation can be seen at our accreditation page.
