There are certain qualifications that the CPC qualification entails for the PCV and the PSV category. Driver CPC initial qualification, as it is called is what is required for anyone to procure a PSV licence.
However there are certain terms and aspects of these qualifications which are being discussed in this article. Firstly there are 2 modules to the driver CPC Training qualification. One is the theory test and the other is the half hour practical test for the demonstration purpose. There are many driving institutes which provide this learning package at a reasonable amount of £395. If you wish to only avail for the demonstration, that can be done for a lesser amount.
The learning package is advisable though because it saves you the time and effort that you yourself would engage in looking for the two types of training. The package entails all the necessary elements of the licence procurement process. The package includes’
- learning material for theory test
- theory test booked on your behalf
- learning material for the test -both theory and practical
- 4 hours one to one training with the instructor which includes practical training
- use of vehicle for practical test
- practical tests
Once you gave passed the practical part of the examination and training, you get your driver qualification card. The driver then obtains their licence.
It is always advisable to take up this training package. There is yet another condition. The person must also complete 35 man hours of practical driver training as well. This can be done in 7 hours modules. It is a part of the CPC training process generally and is a compulsory part of the licence obtaining process.
Training, whether theory or practical is both necessary to obtain for the PCV Driver. The training in the PCV is important because the driver needs to operate public vehicles like buses or minibuses or even coaches which carry people. It is that the driver has the sole responsibility of the people in his or her coach. He should be medically sound and experienced enough for the road. He or she should know all the vehicles properly and their functions.
The whole process can be easily dealt with if the person chooses to take up a package for this instead of going places for different approvals. This will save time and effort as well as costs because he or she has to spend on one place only.
