You must do 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years to keep your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence  to drive a lorry, bus or coach. The deadline to do your training is shown on your card.

You can do your required hours in many ways; some of the most popular examples are either to complete your hours in one block (5 days) or complete 7 hours annually over a 5 year period. You can check how many hours of training you’ve done in the current 5-year period. It’s illegal to drive professionally if your training is not complete by your deadline.

Drivers with acquired rights are required to complete their next block of training by 9 Sept 2024.


Our resources are some of, if not the best on the market. We have approx 42 modules to choose from each consuiting of  3.5hrs of interactive tuition. Some of those modules are below:
