Driver CPC/JAUPT Approved Courses

The Vehicle Drivers (Certificate of Professional Competence) Regulations came into effect in 2007 following the Driver CPC EU Directive in 2003/59. The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) is relevant to all LGV and PCV driving professionals and as such drivers are required to undertake 35 hours of professional training during a 5 year period to keep their CPC valid.

Only courses that have been approved and are being delivered by a training centre that has been approved by the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) will count towards the periodic training requirement. Periodic training is designed to confirm and expand on the existing knowledge and skills of each driver, for example, by enabling them to keep up-to-date with ever-changing legislation.

NAS Recruitment has been delivering DCPC since 2010 and, since then, has continued to add to our range of 7 hour courses and 3½ hour modules to satisfy both the LGV and PCV sectors. Our training courses are based on years of transport training experience, supported with subject matter experts and via regular dialogue with fleet operators ensuring that our courses comply with all current relevant legislation. To ensure a return on your investment, our training courses have been designed to ensure that drivers understand their responsibilities and legislative obligations, equipping them with essential knowledge to operate safely, courteously and fuel-efficiently. A suite of unique driver workbooks assist the learning experience and add to training outputs.

NAS Training Services has the capability to deliver training to match clients’ individual requirements, including weekend delivery. Training can be delivered using our Livingston or Glasgow training centres or, alternatively, at customer sites.

Our programmes are available in 3½ hour modules, which can be mixed and matched to produce a 7 hour course to suit your business needs.
