What would you do with £3,653,450? I would imagine quite a lot.

In the first year that DVSA Enforcement Officers were able to issue fines for the last 28 days of Drivers Hours infringements, thats how much the 19,723 drivers who were caught with infringements paid in fines. It’s a big problem.

It’s also a big problem for the operators of the vehicles they were driving. Their drivers getting fined regularly means that the DVSA is going to come and inspect your records, they are going to look in to a pattern of non-compliance. It could mean a trip to a public enquiry, curtailment, suspension or revocation of the operators licence. 

It could shut you down.

The Drivers Hours and Tacho Awareness course is designed to give drivers the necessary knowledge to comply with the regulations.

The course covers:

  • Drivers Hours Rules
  • Tachographs
  • Operational Guidance

Driver CPC

This module is approved for 3.5 hours of Driver CPC periodic training and must be taken in conjunction with another module. Driver CPC hours are only credited to holders of a valid C1, C, D, D+E or C+E licence.



After 10 years in the haulage industry, rising to running my own small fleet of vehicles, I left the cab behind to focus on training the next generation of drivers. I now run RPS Driven Media, give driving lessons as a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor and relate my experience of road haulage in Driver CPC courses throughout the year.
