The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has decided to publish statistics on Driver CPC training.
Driver CPC applies to professional LGV and PCV drivers within the UK. Periodic Driver CPC training means completing 35 hours formal training every 5 years.
That’s an estimated 500,000 drivers for the LGV sector alone (applies to drivers of vehicles over 3.5 tonnes). Broken down that’s approximately 17.5 million training hours. The statistics supplied (pdf. below) gives an indication as to how much training has been completed to date.
Going by the stats provided the commercial transport industry needs to raise its game and get to grips with Driver CPC. Leaving it till the last minute will increase demand and in turn ramp up prices.
