Driver CPC training deadline
If you are someone who drives a horsebox professionally or as part of your business, you fall under the legislation which states that as of 10th September 2009, all commercial drivers using vehicles in excess of 3.5tonnes must undertake 35 hours of Periodic Training, in 7-hour (minimum) sessions, before 10th September 2014, and for every 5-year period thereafter.
There are numerous providers of these courses, which covers subjects including:
- Drivers' hours, working time and tachographs
- Digital tachographs for drivers
- Fuel efficient driving and safety on the road
- International driving, and more
If you haven't yet attended any Driver CPC courses start thinking about it in 2013 so that you can fit all 35 hours in.
