Driver deadline approaches
The deadline for truck and bus drivers to drive legally and professionally is fast approaching.
To remain on the road, all truck and us drivers must have their Driver CPC training day completed by the 9 September 2012. This law came into effect on 8 September 2008 for bus drivers and the following September for truck drivers.
The reason for this legislation is to promote professionalism in the industry and SAFED (Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving). If a driver does not complete their training they can be fined up to €2,000 and their employer can be fined up to €5000. This one-day course consists of six different Modules which instruct drivers on everything from tachographs (digital and analogue), optimum vehicle control, better fuel efficiency, health and safety, driver documentation and accident prevention.
“The drivers who have attended our CPC course are extremely enthusiastic and have praised the practicality of our content,” said Tony Hynes of CPC.IE.
“We have hundreds of testimonials on our website from drivers who have attended our courses. In the current economic environment operators have also been very impressed with the course due to the cost savings which can be applied to the bottom line.
CPC.IE, Ireland’s leading CPC specialists, have now trained over 30,000 drivers in their 'nationally acclaimed' Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) Courses.
