Online Enquiry Service for Professional Drivers
The new online driver enquiry service, developed by DSA, has just been launched to allow lorry, bus and coach drivers working towards Driver CPC to go online to check records of the periodic training they’ve done.
Lorry, bus and coach drivers can access the service 24 hours a day, which provides a clear and simple online record, showing:
* the driver’s Driver CPC qualification expiry date (bus and coach and / or lorry)
* details of each training course completed
Drivers can register to use the service at https://www.gov.uk/check-your-driver-cpc-periodic-training-hours
The service also allows drivers to give current or prospective employers temporary access to their training records – allowing them to confirm how much periodic training the driver has completed in their five year cycle.
This online service should also benefit trainers by reducing the need for them to respond to individual driver and operator enquiries.
Uploading training records
It should only take up to five days from course completion for a driver’s training record to be updated.
If you’re a trainer, it’s important to get records added within this period.
