Your expert training provider

Fraikin was one of the first companies in the UK to commence Driver CPC training in September 2009, with 70 attendees completing their first day’s periodic training with us just days after the training came into force. Since then we’ve successfully trained thousands of HGV drivers from across the country.
Over the last year with the second five-year block deadline for drivers with acquired rights (September 9, 2019), we stepped up our training provision to support customers. In October 2018, DVSA statistics reported that 75 per cent of the required training was still to be completed.

How did we help?
We supported fleets to ensure their drivers completed training on-time by organising week-long courses, certified and audited by the Joints Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT).
Held at our Coventry depot in Oak Tree Road from January to August 2019, they were led by our own team of industry experts.

We continue to offer external training, as well as training specifically for our own customers.

Our courses cover:
• The rules and regulations governing the road transport industry
• LGV-specific regulations
• Loading and best practice
• Vehicle safety, control systems and efficiency
• Customer services and driver best practice.

How much does training cost?
Drivers or firms booking their place will pay just £60 per driver, per day – reduced to £50 for existing Fraikin customers. This covers seven hours’ training including lunch, a certificate of attendance and prompt upload of details to the DVLA database upon competition.

How do I book?
To make a booking, simply call 02476 694494, email driver.cpc@fraikin.com or complete the form below. Our team will also be able to share with you the full calendar of available training dates.

How does Brexit affect Driver CPC?
Even with Brexit, we believe it is unlikely that Driver CPC training will change in the short term. We therefore recommend companies book their drivers onto courses.

What is the Driver CPC?

All HGV drivers with acquired rights must have completed 35 hours of periodic training in order to remain legally compliant. Anyone caught driving professionally without having renewed their Driver CPC qualification can be fined up to £1,000 by the DVSA.

Each new five-year period begins from the expiry date of your current Driver CPC qualification, and not from the date when you reached the 35 hours minimum training required.

Fraikin has been certified and audited by the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) as an approved training centre with an accredited course syllabus that covers the LGV elements of the Driver CPC. To-date, we’ve trained hundreds of drivers all over the UK.
