You must complete 35 hours of Driver CPC Periodic Training every 5 years to keep your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence. Our trainers have been approved to deliver approved training courses for periodic training.

To attend these courses you must hold a driver qualification card with less than five years to expiry, or your driver qualification card has already expired or you have ‘acquired rights’. If you are not sure if you are eligible, just give us a call and we will help you to confirm eligibility.

You should check the expiry date of your card and make sure that you have sufficient time to complete the training before the card expires. The following link explains what to do if you miss your training deadline.

If you have recently completed your 5th day of training but have not received your new card you should check to make sure that all the courses you have attended have been registered. You can check here. If a course you have attended is not showing on the record, you will need to contact the company that arranged your training, who can check with DVSA to make sure that the records are correct. If you have completed all your training, but your existing CPC card is not due to expire for more than a year then you will not receive your new cpc card until a year before its expiry.
