How much Driver CPC Training Costs depends on whether you need Initial or Periodic Driver CPC training.
Initial Driver CPC Training Costs
If you require all 4 modules of the Driver Initial qualification then you will need to pass a total of 5 tests. 3 of these are theory and the other 2 are practical. You must pass the following
Module 1 (A & B) and 2
Theory tests * 3 (£85 DSA test fee)
Theory tests training material (books and DVD £40)
online theory training(£35)
Practical HGV Driver Training typically takes 5 days and can cost between £925 -£1050 (price should include Vat and test fees)
Practical associated knowledge exam: the test fee for this is £55. Bear in mind you will need to undertake some formal training and need an HGV for the test. Expect to pay between £190 – £250 all in (should include tuition, Vat, test fee and use of vehicle)
Driver CPC periodic Training Costs
Periodic Driver CPC requires all Professional HGV Drivers to complete 35 hours training every 5 years. You will find most courses are 7 hours in duration. How much the 7 hours training costs will variate between different training providers. There is no “fixed price”. Going for the cheapest option just to “tick the boxes” is not always recommended. In the 1st instance you have to ask yourself how and why is this course so cheap. What corners have been cut and which standards have been lowered?
Training with an approved, reputable, Driver CPC Training Provider, may cost a little more but will pay dividends in the long run. Try and complete 7 hours every year. That way you are spreading the time and cost involved in completing your Driver CPC.
For extra value try and kills 2 birds with one stone and get 2 qualifications at the same time. For example attending an ADR course can count towards your Driver CPC hours.
From our research, 7 hour Driver CPC courses can cost between £49 – £120 (includes Vat and Driver CPC registration, £1.25 per hour
