Driver CPC Training Hadleigh
Driver CPC training in Hadleigh is essential for anyone looking to drive a bus, coach or lorry professionally as the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence is now a requirement across the EU and has been since 2008 (2009 for lorries). With help from the professional team here at Sigma, new drivers can get qualified with Initial Driver CPC and we also help drivers gain their 35 hours for Periodic training. Once you have gained your Initial CPC qualification, this Periodic training has to be completed every 5 years; it is common for drivers to attend a course every year to fulfil the minimum requirement in a time efficient way.
After obtaining your Driver Qualification Card, you need to keep this with you when driving PCV or HGV professionally – it is also required that all haulage and transport business operators of these types of vehicles are CPC certified.
The 4 stages of Driver CPC Training
There are four parts to the Initial Driver CPC qualification and these are as follows:
- Theory test
Specific to LGV and PCV, this module includes a multiple choice test and a hazard perception test.
- Case studies
This tests the knowledge of candidates and how skills that are learned would be put into practice.
- Practical test
The driving test assesses your ability to handle various types of road and traffic conditions.
- Vehicle safety demonstration
There are many areas covered by this final step, including:
- Loading a vehicle, paying attention to safety rules and using the vehicle properly
- Security of both a vehicle and its load (contents)
- Preventing criminality and in particular, the trafficking of illegal immigrants
- Assessing emergency situations
- Preventing physical risk
- Carrying out a vehicle walk-round check
