Driver CPC training courses Leicester and Nationwide

Our Driver Periodic CPC training has been voted "The very best in CPC training courses, Leicester" by several of our clients, because we really do go the extra mile for our lorry and bus driver delegates.

We are also a FORS Approved Centre, and offer FORS FORS Courses Driver CPC courses in Leicester or from your own premises. Our FORS Protecting Vulnerable Road Users is equivalent to Safe Urban Driving.

All of our Lorry Driver CPC courses, and Bus Driver CPC Courses, are highly interactive, with drivers taking part in a mixture of practical activities, individual activities, quizzes, group activities and sometimes even going outside to ride a bike or mingle with the traffic!

Our course delegates continually return for further CPC modules, stating that our courses have been the best they have ever been on, and how well looked after they are throughout their course. A Fine selection of sandwiches are provided from 31 Coffee, our on site specialist coffee shop, and drivers have access throughout the day to freshly brewed coffee and a selection of teas all provided free of charge by ourselves. Drivers also get to use two luxury break out areas to relax in during their breaks, with soft seating and a TV to keep them entertained.

We hold regular scheduled open courses from our Leicester Venue, and we will also come out to your premises to deliver group CPC or FORS courses providing that the training facilities are suitable.

This year, we have changed most of our courses to 3.5 hour modules, so that we can provide a more varied range of topics within one 7 hour session, helping you get the most of your CPC Training, while still retaining our appealing prices.

CPC Group Courses start at around £580 for up to 20 drivers, with discounts being offered for multiple course bookings and we also offer a lower price on FORS Group Courses for up to 12 Drivers.
