September 2014 is the deadline for the completion of Driver CPC for professional drivers of buses, coaches or lorries exceeding 3.5 ton’s and as this deadline looms ever closer it is vital that drivers undertake the minimum 35 hours of approved training required in every five year period with a professional accredited organisation such as ACE Trainers based at Basingstoke.
ACE Trainers work in conjunction with RTITB to provide professional drivers in Hampshire, Berkshire, Kent and Surrey with Driver CPC training. They provide full training to enable drivers to complete the five modules required to obtain the CPC qualification and accumulate the total of 35 hours Training.
These modules are:
• Drivers Hours and Tachograph including Working Time Directive
• Vehicle & Load Handling Systems
• Health & Safety, Loading/Unloading, PPE, Risk Assessments
• Principles of Safe Economic & Defensive Driving (Fuel Economy Training)
• Maintenance, Daily Checks, Speed Limits, Driving Regulations, Signs and Restrictions
The experts at ACE offer courses on both week days and weekends to enable drivers to undertake training to suit their work commitments and the minimum length of a training course that contributes to the periodic training requirement is 7 hours which ACE can deliver over five one day modules.
The experts at ACE strongly advice that all professional drivers look to booking a Driver CPC training as failure to complete this training before September 2014 would mean that you would be driving illegally and could incur a fine of up to £1,000.00.
