The Ultimate Professional HGV Driver Programme

£60.00 + VAT

Unleash the Full Potential of Your Drivers

As a result of inadequate testing, Driver CPC training may not guarantee that professional HGV drivers possess the necessary knowledge to adhere to their legal responsibilities or carry out their duties in accordance with legislation.
To address this challenge and ensure drivers are competent, confident, and compliant, we have created The Ultimate Professional Driver Program. This adaptable program enables professional drivers to receive continuous professional development training without having to take time off work to attend training.

Our exclusive program is accessible online and contains over 100 written, video, and audio lessons on 14 relevant topics designed to enhance driver knowledge and understanding. These bite-sized lessons can be accessed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from anywhere in the world and can be viewed on multiple devices, including smartphones and iPads.

The program includes knowledge retention quizzes to demonstrate competency and a certificate of training is issued upon completion as proof of training. Many companies use it as part of their induction process or as an educational tool for drivers who receive infringements. It has also proven helpful for transport office staff who require a comprehensive understanding of the regulations to ensure they do not compromise the driver’s position.

This course is an excellent tool for individuals to ensure compliance with legislation and demonstrate to employers that they are doing things correctly.
