Dhoot Driving School’s CPC Training Courses in Battersea, London

Welcome to Dhoot Driving School in Battersea London. We’re here to assist you in your Driver CPC Training to become a skilled and responsible professional driver.

The Driver CPC, or Driver Certificate of Professional Competence, is a mandatory qualification for individuals aspiring to work as professional truck/lorry, coach, and bus drivers. Its main goal is to improve road safety standards and ensure that professionals have excellent driving skills.

Who Requires Driver CPC Certification?

This qualification is necessary for anyone driving trucks, lorries, coaches, or buses as their job. If you drive Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV) or Large Goods Vehicles (LGV), you must have a Driver Qualification Card (DQC). Drivers with existing licenses must take Periodic Training to keep their CPC valid.

At Dhoot Driving School in Battersea London, we offer excellent Initial Driver CPC and Periodic Training for both new and experienced drivers. Our training is available in many languages, including Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Kashmiri, English, Polish, Albanian, Arabic, Bengali, Cantonese, Dari, Farsi, Spanish, Tamil, Turkish, Urdu, Welsh, and more. Our trainers are DVSA-approved and skilled in multiple languages, ensuring a thorough and effective learning experience.
