If you’re a lorry, bus or coach driver working towards Driver CPC, you can now check records of the periodic training you’ve completed online.
You can register to use the online driver enquiry service, developed by DSA, at www.direct.gov.uk/checkdrivercpc
The service can be accessed 24 hrs a day and provides a clear and simple online record, showing:
- Your Driver CPC qualification expiry date (bus and coach and / or lorry)
- Details of each training course completed you’ve completed.
It also allows you to give your current or prospective employer temporary access to your training record - so they can confirm how much periodic training you have done in your five year cycle.
The service should also benefit trainers by reducing the need for them to respond to many of the kinds of enquiries they receive from individual drivers and operators.
Uploading training records
It should only take up to five days from course completion for a driver’s training record to be updated, and trainers are reminded of the importance of adding records within this period.
If this hasn’t been done, drivers should contact the trainer directly. If the trainer / centre do not respond satisfactorily, drivers should then raise this with DSA via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Linking to the service
- If you’re a trainer or employer and want to add a button to your website that links to the service, you could do so using this graphic.
- You could also add the following message to the training certificate you issue at the end of your training course – helping to raise awareness of the service.
