DURING lockdown, members of the RTITB Master Driver CPC Consortium were approved by DVSA to deliver Driver CPC Periodic Training via web conference for groups of up to 12 drivers.

RTITB surveyed some of these organisations, who had collectively delivered remote Driver CPC training to 685 Drivers between 1 April and 1 June 2020.

‘The majority feel that going forward, remote DCPC should be an option alongside classroom delivery, to enable customers to choose the route they prefer,’ says Laura Nelson, managing director for RTITB. ‘Instructors have been positive about delivering remote Driver CPC and say it should have a place in the long-term as it seems to improve driver engagement.’

One other key benefit of remote delivery cited was the removal of the need for drivers and instructors to travel to a particular venue for training.
