Driver CPC Training

DCPC Cards Certified & Approved by Jaupt

LGV and PCV drivers must take 35 hours of periodic training in every 5 year period. All of our courses are in 7-hour blocks and have been approved by JAUPT. Once a driver has attended the full 35 hours of training, a new DCPC card will be issued for a further 5 years.

We run a course every 4-6 weeks, Monday to Saturday, at our training facility in Sunderland; a driver can attend any of these days as required. If you would require a weekend course, we would gladly like to accommodate.

If you would like any more information, please contact one of our team on 0191 565 4020
