Truck, bus or coach ‘drivers must have completed 35 hours of periodic training in the last five years.

Our Senior DCPC trainer explains,

All your professional drivers – operating a truck, bus, or coach – must complete 35 hours of periodic training every five years, in order to keep their Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (DCPC).

At LSA we have a high quality block of five one-day courses, the day charge rate has been set competitively and will be delivered at our dedicated logistics sites, Feltham will focus on the Heathrow hot-spot of logistics. It's really important for you to get value for money and good syllabus coverage to build skills of your drivers; repeating old courses is a waste of driver time and money.

If drivers miss their deadline, they cannot drive professionally until they have completed their training and can be fined up to £1,000. The driver’s five-year administrative expiry date is displayed on the front of the Driver Qualification Card under 4b. If you are unsure how many hours of Driver CPC training your drivers have completed, or which course they have attended, you can check on the GOV.UK website. However, your drivers will need to set you up with a password so you can view their record.


At LSA we can help you with a review of where your drivers are at, we can deliver all the course blocks they need, we can even edit material to fit your working patterns.

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

All professional drivers must complete a total of 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years following their ‘acquired rights’ or initial qualification to keep their Driver CPC valid.
