The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) became a legal requirement for everyone operating an LGV vehicle over 3.5 tonnes from September 2009.
Drivers must undertake 35 hours of training every five years in order to meet the CPC requirement. The training must consist of approved courses and Mercedes-Benz are proud to be able to offer these at facilities across the UK.
So, whether you are a driver or fleet manager, Mercedes-Benz can offer you the assistance and expertise to help you prepare and adjust to this new legislation.
The information on this site ranges from course details to testimonials by those involved with the Mercedes-Benz DriverTraining programme. If you cannot find the information that you need then please contact us on 0800 090 090 and we will be happy to help you with your enquiry.
Each of our seven hour courses have been designed to be interactive, varied and interesting with optional assessment and feedback at the end.
Through a mixture of classroom and in-cab training we aim to provide an enjoyable learning experience that brings every driver to a level far beyond the minimum demanded by the legislation.
