You may well be aware that the government has announced upcoming changes to the Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) training for HGV drivers.

The MD of the biggest HGV Training company in the UK, Driver Hire, has provided the following commentary about the news.

John Keelan Edwards, MD of Driver Hire Training, says:


“We are firm believers that Driver CPC is a good thing, for people in logistics and for the wider public. So the news that the Government is planning to maintain and enhance Driver CPC will be good for the industry, as the changes will make it a more flexible, accessible qualification. The changes will make it easier for former drivers to get back into driving professionally and easier for current drivers to renew training.”


“The updates will also make sure those considering a career in logistics know that there is a pathway for them, and there is ongoing investment in personal development.”


“The fact that it will now be possible to do modules non-consecutively makes Driver CPC more flexible for drivers, with 3.5 hours of learning a good way to keep people engaged with the training. Whilst no timescales have yet been announced, Driver Hire are ready for the new model, as we already have a set of 20+ 3.5hr modules covering a wide range of topics.”
