What must a driver do?
Each DQC is valid for five years from the date of issue. This means that – unlike the 2014 deadline set when Driver CPC was introduced – each driver’s renewal date is unique to them.
All drivers must undertake 35 hours’ periodic training before the end of the five years following the issue date on their DQC. If the training is not undertaken during that time, they will not be permitted to drive professionally until they have completed their 35 hours of periodic training.
The best way to ensure that a DQC doesn’t lapse is to carry out at least one day’s mandatory periodic training every year.
You can check how many hours of training you’ve done in the current 5-year period.
You only need to complete one set of training every 5 years if you drive both lorries and buses professionally.
You have to do the training in the country where you work or normally live.
How we can help you get your DQC
We can offer you a variety of different courses, running all over the UK, at either a venue local to you or on your site if you have suitable training facilities available.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved our periodic Driver CPC training online. We are using software that allows us to deliver live sessions to you at home. These live sessions are 7 hours long and led by our skilled instructors.
We have courses available for both HGV & PCV drivers.
All training is classroom-based or online as per JAUPT's terms. This course is an attendance course only so there is no testing.
