Driver CPC - Periodic Training

Course Information

In order to drive a lorry or bus professionally you will need a Driver CPC qualification. Once you have this you will receive a Driver’s Qualification Card (DQC). This will need to be renewed every 5 years by completing 35 hours of periodic CPC training. This is usually classroom based and will take 5 days, based on a 7 hour day. This can be arranged in a block, or spread over the 5 years. We recommend completing 1 day per year on a rolling basis.

We have a large choice of practical or classroom based topics for you to choose from. We also offer additional qualifications like ADR or First Aid At Work which count towards Driver CPC training hours.

We can deliver these courses anywhere in the UK or at any of our Shropshire JAUPT accredited training sites in Shrewsbury, Telford and Rodenhurst. We have discount options for group bookings, flexible funding options, and can deliver on weekdays and weekends. Our Driver CPC JAUPT accredited number is AC02214.
