DVSA offer license holders quicker route to obtain 1st DQC card


Since the acquired rights deadline has passed DVSA has received requests from members of the public, who wish to return to vocational driving, asking how they can obtain a DQC. DVSA has considered these requests in the context of the government’s desire to support driver recruitment and reduce the potential burden to the industry and has decided that they will now allow drivers with a full licence to gain their first DQC via either periodic training or completion of modules two and four. For further information visit the dedicated Gov website: Driver CPC for Lorry, Bus & Coach drivers

This provision will apply to a driver’s first DQC only – any subsequent renewal will require periodic training to be completed. DVSA envisages this will have very limited impact on approved trainers and anticipate as more drivers enter the industry the demand for Driver CPC periodic training will ultimately be increased.

We can of course offer a full range of courses from achieving all 35 hours in 1 week to providing individual courses as required – call us if you would like further information, 7 hour course available regularly – 01453 826781

Manual Handling

boxesManual Handling, whether it’s just lifting a box of paper in the office or a heavy more complicated two man lift, it’s essential your staff are trained.
We often take manual handling for granted until it’s too late. The consequences of which can be very serious, often resulting in lifelong, permanent injury.
With the introduction of FFI by the HSE back in 2012, failure by employers to ensure an appropriately trained workforce could leave a business liable to both extensive fines (currently £124 per hour) and being served a prohibition notice. The latter potentially adding to a loss in work, production and income.
Effective training by C&G Services can help prevent these issues. Through our direct consultation, we can offer either ‘off the shelf’ courses or design a course specific to your needs and the type of loads being lifted. We have delivered a range of bespoke Manual Handling courses to many industry sectors so through our experience clients will gain greater knowledge and the best trained staff.
We hold over 20 memberships and accreditations such as the National Skills Academy for Rail and Nuclear meaning that our training is respected amongst our peers and if that wasn’t enough, all our training is delivered to ISO 9001:2008 Quality Standards. Make the right choice today and gettrained by C&G Services!
