DRIVER CPC TRAINING MODULES
FOR LGV DRIVER
Each of our seven hour courses are designed to be interactive, varied, interesting and appealing to all professional drivers regardless of the make or brand of vehicle that you drive.
Truck Technology and Safety - A review of vehicle technology looking at modern engines, transmissions, brakes and controls. The focus is especially on the latest environmental and safety features to help protect you, your truck and the world around us.
Economical Driving - This course covers use of momentum, economical braking, intelligent use of torque and how anticipation and reaction times can be improved. All this results in less fuel consumption, less wear and tear on the vehicle and less strain on you. The theory is then put into practice behind the wheel.
Driving Safety - Designed to make you more fully aware of the capabilities of your vehicle. This course looks at how to avoid dangerous situations and how to cope if one arises. It also covers accident procedure and how to maintain driver energy levels and alertness.
The Drivers Day, Legal and Social - This course provides reminders on the mass of legislation surrounding the operation of goods vehicles, both current and future, from tachographs and smuggling, to delivery notes and industrial safety.
The Professional Driver - The aim of this course is to provide advice on how to drive responsibly in a working environment to improve safety for yourself, your colleagues and your customers. Should the worst happen, it also covers emergencies and driver responsibilities.
Load Securing - Loading your vehicle correctly is important for the health and safety of the people working around the vehicle and to avoid breaking the law. This course covers specific loading requirements including safe lifting, load distribution, securing methods and legal penalties.
