Driver training: are you compliant?

 Here’s the lowdown… Mna hanging car keys on a board

All commercial PCV drivers must complete 35 hours of training. All LGV drivers have until 9 September 2014 to complete 35 hours of training. In both cases, the 35 hours can be split into one-day sessions lasting 7 hours each. We offer a full, comprehensive course, covering:

 
  • Fuel economy training
  • Drivers hours and tachograph​ (including Working Time Directive)
  • Maintenance, daily checks, speed limits, driving regulations, signs and restrictions
  • Health & Safety, loading / unloading, PPE, risk assessments
  • Customer service and soft skills
  • Lorry mounted crane (HIAB)
  • First Aid for road users
  • Driver training in cab
  • ADR testing for vehicles carrying dangerous/hazardous goods (can count for 1, 2  or 3 days). 

 

We also offer a range of other courses which are detailed below. For further information, dates and prices, please get in touch. Our staff will be happy to discuss your requirements. ​

To run an HGV business, you must have a current Operators licence. It’s that simple. What’s not quite so simple is understanding how you go about applying for, amending or renewing your Operators licence. Our seminars will guide you through the process and we can also help with your application and ensure that you have the right processes in place to be compliant right from the start.

Driving a minibus is very different from driving a car. Whether your organisation has professional drivers or volunteers, the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme is a national recognised training scheme that improves minibus driving standards and promotes the safer operation of minibuses. The day involves a mix of classroom study, theory and practical driving assessment at the end of which, drivers have greater awareness and more confidence when out on the road.

Taking care of a bus-load of passengers can be a daunting prospect, especially when there are children or vulnerable adults involved. We offer PATS Training, a nationally recognised standard, specifically aimed at those who provide care and assistance for road passengers. We cover all legal, practical and safety aspects, with plenty of advice and skills to help carers understand and meet the needs of their passengers.
