Driver CPC Courses
Driver CPC is by attendance of the mandatory 7 hours and there is no pass/fail although drivers will carry out an end of module assessment to ensure the driver understands all of the course content that has been delivered.
We run courses across East Anglia and have a dedicated training room on the Norfolk / Suffolk border with easy access.
We also run courses in Ipswich, Norwich, Colchester, Chelmsford, West Thurrock, Peterborough and Cambridge. If you have a number of drivers at your business and an area to seat them we can arrange training to be done at your location.
Driver CPC Training
From September 2014 all existing licence holders must have completed and achieved their 35 hours training and obtained their Drivers Qualifications Card.
Courses are run during the week plus week ends, this enables delegates to complete either a 35 hour course or individual 7 hour blocks.
