Welcome to A-Class, we offer Driver CPC Training courses in Kent, Essex & London.
If you wish to become a professional LGV/coach driver you must obtain Driver CPC rights. We offer affordable courses which will enable you to obtain these rights. We offer courses for individual drivers or for companies with several drivers.
As we realise that most of the required content covered by the CPC syllabus is knowledge that is already held by most drivers, we have created a curriculum that compliments this knowledge with enjoyable and creative lessons.
Training courses provided by us are tailored to suit individual needs, and are always priced to be highly competitive. All training courses are delivered by our team of highly skilled instructors that have a wealth of experience in the transport training industry.
So, if you require any of the services we currently offer, in any of the areas listed below, please feel free to get in touch.

CPC Periodic Training
Periodic Training; 35 hours of training every 5 years must be attended by all professional drivers .Periodic training is continuing professional development for bus, coach and lorry drivers. It carries on throughout the professional driver's career - no matter how infrequently they drive.
The minimum length of a training course is seven hours. Where a course of seven hours is split into two parts the second part must start within 24 hours of the completion of the first part.
It is important that you allow yourself enough time to complete your training within the five year period. There is no advantage in delaying your periodic training. The sooner you train, the sooner your knowledge and skills will be refreshed and updated, which will enhance your professionalism.
