Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) Training

Our Courses

As a professional driver there is a mandatory requirement to complete 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years to keep your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) to drive a lorry, bus or coach.

Westminster has over 30 approved 1 day driver CPC courses to provide professional drivers with the mandatory 35 hours training they need.

Each single Driver CPC training day must last 7 hours to officially count towards the mandatory 35 hours that you must take to gain your Driver Qualification Card.

Most of Westminster’s CPC training days are made up of two separate 3½ hour modules. This gives a wider range of subjects and ensures learning is varied and enhanced.
