Driver CPC Training Course

David is the qualified “Driver CPC” instructor, on behalf of The Association of Trainers. David did his initial instructor training through the Road Haulage Association, now teaches the courses through The Association of Trainers. David has worked within the Bus & Coach industry for over 20 years, and has gained a lot of experience. He has also worked on many transport industry forums and committees over the years, and is very much up-to-date regarding EU legislation, and driver compliance. David also has also driven within the industry giving him first hand experience of drivers issues.

Our courses are designed to give appropriate information that drivers require, and courses will be given in a fun, non-classroom environment, making drivers feel much more comfortable, yet making the maximum use of your training time. David also can advise how to overcome day-to-day issues, and advises how to comply with this legislation with confidence and pride. Our courses are audited and written to ensure compliance with the Driver CPC directive, and approved through the association.
