A Benefit to YOU, the professional Driver....
The drivers CPC is championing road safety by ensuring all professional drivers refresh their skills regularly. It is also reinforcing the professionalism of the industry, providing a path for career development, and reducing the opportunities for rogue drivers.
Driver training is important both for new and existing drivers. Regularly updating your skills to take in safer and more efficient techniques will help: reduce injuries and fatalities, reduce congestion resulting from accidents, reduce damage to vehicles, reduce vehicle repair downtime, reduce your insurance premiums and ensure you comply with current legislation. Our CPC doesn't involve test or examination, and it's compulsory. Many drivers are already on-route to completing their CPC, We make it easy, interesting and fun.
