Logistics UK is to start offering both classroom-based and online training options for its Driver CPC programme on the back of new DVSA guidance.
DVSA has confirmed an anticipated start date of 12 April 2021 for all classroom-based periodic training in-line with the national roadmap out of lockdown. This includes in-vehicle and third-party classroom-based Driver CPC periodic training.
A DVSA spokesperson said: “Following the publication of the roadmap out of national lockdown on 22 February, we have worked with government and stakeholders to agree the indicative restart dates of all our driver, rider and vocational testing services.
“We intend that in-vehicle and third-party classroom-based Driver CPC training can restart from 12 April 2021 if government guidance allows.”
This applies to training delivered in England and Wales, while courses held in Scotland have an anticipated start date of 26 April 2021, and Northern Ireland will be considered on a case-by-case basis, as per the restrictions in that area.
Logistics UK said the return to classroom-based training will be run alongside online training options and will allow companies to choose the format best suited to their operation.
