How often should periodic Driver CPC training take place?
35 hours of Periodic Training must take place in 5-yearly cycles consistent with Driver CPC renewal. This must continue until such time as the person no longer wishes to drive category C or D vehicles professionally.
The driver has flexibility as to how he/she takes the 35 hours training over this time, providing training occurs in blocks of at least seven hours at one time. So, for example, a driver may complete two blocks of 7 hours in the first year, and the final three blocks of seven hours in the fifth year. A driver could leave all 35 hours until the fifth year.
