Essex Forklift Training offers the professional LGV and PCV driver CPC training.
The Driver CPC is a scheme for PCV (passenger) & LGV (goods) drivers who drive vocationally (professionally) in UK. It is a requirement of the EU Directive 2003/59, which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of vocational PCV and LGV drivers throughout their working life.
See these short videos explaining the Driver CPC qualification.
