Know your Vehicle and Load

This 3.5 hour Driver CPC module covers a wide range of legislation surrounding weights, heights, width and length limits. As experience drivers, we quickly learned that most rely on their experience to know if a vehicle feels overweight, or await a low bridge to confront them to be prompted to check their vehicle height, which isn’t best practice.

The course explains how your vehicles are being monitored without you knowing and the implications to both drivers and operators should you operate outside of the law. It explains loading means and best practices, load distribution and tail lifts to mention but a few topics.

Loading vehicles are something we will do on a regular basis, so why not learn how to do it correctly and safely?

This course is beneficial to all. Certain counties within the EU have adopted what we regard as a fantastic law, in the sense of all drivers must hold a valid first aid certificate, and so why not gain life saving knowledge as part of your Driver CPC?

You just never know who may need your help; unfortunately, next time, it could be a loved one.

Licences and Fixed Penalties
