dCPC Periodic Training

The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (dCPC) was introduced during 2008 for passenger carrying vehicles and 2009 for LGVs, as part of a new European Directive designed to improve road safety, enhance standards of driving and regularly maintain the performance of professional drivers..

Here at KTA, as a JAUPT approved centre we offer fully approved Driver CPC on your premises. If you have a suitable room and can spare it for the day, then we can deliver training to your staff  on your premises. With a maximum class size of 20, this can be a very cost effective solution.

Free Training…
For a limited period we are offering 1 day’s free periodic training if you book 5 days of 35 hours or book 5 drivers to attend a course and you will be charged for 4 driver’s, the 5th driver will free. Contact us for more details.

Time is ticking away….
Before you know it September 2018/2019 will be upon us or sooner if you have taken your vocational  licence test after September 2008/2009, then you have 5 years from the day you pass your module 4 test.

Why not spread your training over the 5 years and spread the cost.
