Are you considering a Career in logistics? Do you need accredited training on FLTs, HIABs or other manual handling equipment to get that next job or promotion?
Here at DAC recruitment and training our highly professional staff are here to help you enter the Logistics industry at every step, from organising a medical and helping you fill out your application forms to shaking you hand after you pass your driving tests. We aim to deliver superb training with high levels of customer satisfaction.
Below you’ll find all the information you'll need to enter the world of professional lorry driving or skilled warehousing
The first step in gaining you CAT C1, C, C+E, D1 or D1+E license is completing a Medical (if you don’t currently have one), you can get one from your local GP or we can provide one at our facilities and at the same time we will aid you in filling your provisional license forms.
Once your provisional license returns we will book your theory and hazard perception tests. If you passed your car test after January 1st 1997 we will also book your MOD 2 case studies (initial CPC). We do offer an online training package that covers all the relevant content.
Once all relevant tests have been passed we can get into the vehicle and begin your practical driver training. Additionally you may also need to complete your MOD 4 training and test if required. Once initial/periodic CPC is completed you will gain your Driver Qualification Card and be eligible to drive for hire and reward for the next 5 years.
Your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) qualification lasts for 5 years. To keep your Driver CPC you need to do 35 hours of training before your 5-year deadline. The deadline to do your training is shown on your card. It’s up to you when you take the training courses, as long as you do them within the 5-year period.
If you miss your training deadline - It’s illegal to drive professionally if you haven’t done your training by your deadline.
You can be fined up to £1,000 if you drive professionally without Driver CPC.
You’re allowed to take the same course more than once in each 5-year period, e.g. you could take a first aid course in the first and last year of the 5-year period.
As you will be aware you will have to complete another five modules (35hrs) of Driver CPC training before it runs out for you to gain your next DQC card, with this in mind we have driver CPC training courses running monthly.
