Re: CPC

Hi
Why is it that instructors on C and D categories don't require driver CPC if they only instruct and don't drive commercially?

You answered your own question = they do not drive commercially

DCPC is for the commercial driving of LGVs and PCVS - that is what the EU directive states


The dafter thing is that DCPC instructors have to sit the 35 hours if they want to drive commercially

Re: CPC

Hi Rog
But that implies that Instructing is not a commercial enterprise.

Plus technically. you can take the practical test, have nothing to do with the category for the next (is it 3 or 4 yrs?) and then start instructing on it.

Commercial enterprise for the regs is to do with the movement of goods or people - driver instruction does not fall into those categories

same for B+E re instruction

Well both I suppose.

I've done mine in the last 6 months or so and I was disappointed with the quality of the courses. (and some of the presenters)

I guess that if someone delivers it they will probably be a bit defensive, but I curious what others think of the quality of the courses? It appeared to me that some info and photos were just used as fillers to drag the time out to the required hours.

Re: CPC

Just out of curiosity, I think the HGV CPC has to be done by the 10th of September this year. I now have a driver's card valid up to about 2019. Hypothetical question time. If the date of the 10th of Sept is correct, if I then do five days of training on the 11th to the 15th, will I then be sent a new card valid until about 2024?

The sad thing is that I could do the exact same one day course five times and still complete!!!!!!!

YES - the DQC expiry date in that case would be 09/09/2024

Not all have the 10 sept date because those not on acquired rights (passing initial dcpc) will have different dates for the expiry of their current DQC

DCPC courses run by LGV training schools tend to be the best and often the cheapest

Many other courses are designed and run by those who have no idea of the industry and just deliver an education course as they might do for virtually any subject
