The driver training team comprises 20 trainers and support staff who are dedicated to delivering the statutory requirements of the Driver Certificate in Professional Competence (CPC) for our employees as well as DSA registered LGV instruction NVQ’s and our intensive 2-day driver induction.
All new drivers to the business undergo two full days of training to ensure they meet the exceptionally high standards that are expected of a Stobart driver. During the two day induction all new drivers are issued with their full complement of uniform and safety equipment. They are also issued with a personal Driver Manual containing essential information. This innovative publication is packed with vital information ranging from customer location maps through to information on clients’ special requirements, EU driving hours and even customs allowances.
The company is ahead of schedule in delivering its own range of accredited courses in compliance with the new demands of the Driver CPC. The CPC programme is the new legislative requirement aimed at ensuring LGV and PCV drivers are trained to a high standard in a variety of complimentary areas such as Health and Safety, Customer Care, EU hours and Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving (SAFED).
