Driver CPC is periodic training designed to complement the individual driver's work and be relevant to their everyday job. Drivers will get their Driver Qualification Card (DQC) once they have completed their 35' hours periodic training.

All professional drivers (new and existing drivers) must complete a total of 35 hours' Periodic Training every 5 years following their 'acquired rights' or Initial Qualification to keep their Driver CPC valid.

Driver's Hours (3.5 Hour Module)

Clarke Transport has a variety of 7-hour courses, but our programmes also include 3.5-hour modules, which can be mixed and matched to produce a 7-hour course. In doing so, you can create a bespoke course that suits your learning needs.

This course provides candidates with the knowledge of working time to ensure they are aware of working periods specific to the transport industry. Ensuring drivers know the rules regarding rest breaks and working hours helps to develop a culture of safety and compliance, leading to a reduction in tachograph offences/infringements and corresponding costs.

Digital Tachographs (3.5 Hour Module)

This course covers drivers' legal responsibilities and possible penalties, principles of load safety, load security equipment, dangers of high vehicles / low bridges, pre-load checks, securing loads (including curtain-sided trailers), vehicle stability, vehicle roll over and avoidance, and the correct procedure for loading a vehicle.

Load Security (3.5 Hour Module)

This course covers drivers' legal responsibilities and possible penalties, principles of load safety, load security equipment, dangers of high vehicles / low bridges, pre-load checks, securing loads (including curtain-sided trailers), vehicle stability, vehicle roll over and avoidance, and the correct procedure for loading a vehicle.

Start 1 & Start 2 (2x7 Hour Courses - LGV)

Developed in partnership with the Department for Transport, START (Standardising Training Across Road Transport) aims to embed a standard induction and refresher training programme across the industry. This course covers essential legislation, health and safety, driver health and the social environment of road transport. START is designed in the format of two 7-hour courses, which can be delivered together as an Induction Training programme or for consecutive programmes for experienced drivers as part of ongoing refresher training.

In 2012, there were 14 cyclist fatalities in London, with 5 involving LGVs, highlighting the urgent need to reduce the dangers posed by LGVs to cyclists. The Vulnerable Road Users (VRU) course is based on the Transport for London (TfL) Safe Urban Driving course and has been designed to enable transport operators to take measures to improve safety in all road traffic environments. Candidates will gain an understanding of the changing streetscape and the urban environment, vulnerable road users and sharing the road safely, plus defensive driving techniques and actions in the event of an incident.

Vulnerable Road Users (7 Hours - LGV) 

This course aims to assist drivers in understanding the rules of the road covering topics that include, the legal definition of a road, different types of roads, speed limits, road signs and markings, loading and unloading, pedestrian crossings, roundabouts, vehicle categories and driving licences and entitlements.

Traffic Law (7 Hours)

This one-day course takes the learner through the responsibilities of a first aider; how to assess an incident; how to manage an unresponsive casualty; the respiratory system; and how to deal with wounds and bleeding, shock, seizures and minor injuries. The course is fully accredited by Highfield when delivered by an approved trainer. The learner will become a fully qualified emergency first aider and the qualification is valid for three years.
