When it comes to Driver CPC training, Driver Hire Gatwick leads the way. Our courses are bespoke, tailored to meet the needs of our many clients. You can choose from 20 different industry related courses, selecting the ones that suit you or your business best. Along with regular favourites such Drivers’ Hours and Digital Tachographs we offer a wide range of topics including Fuel Efficient Driving, Emergency First Aid, and Van Smart.
What’s more, we’re happy to deliver our courses anytime, anywhere. And we really do mean that. For example to meet the shift patterns of one of our clients we started training at 9.00pm and worked through to midnight. We then took a few hours off to re-charge the batteries before heading back into the classroom at 4.00am!
Of course, we run courses at more normal hours too, regularly every month. To find out when the next ones are running, give us a call.
Our main trainer is Ian Miller. Highly experienced, Ian has been with us since 2016. He’s still a working driver. When he’s not in the classroom, Ian is one of our regular 7.5 tonne drivers and is a first choice for many of our clients. He’s also holds a PCV licence and an Operators’ CPC.
Ian, who was once the transport manager at Brighton & Hove buses where he was responsible for 800 drivers, treats trainees as professionals. He’s keen to use their experience to add to the value of the classroom training he delivers. “I thoroughly enjoy delivering Driver CPC training,” says Ian. “We get a good mix of HGV and PCV drivers in every class. Whilst their loads might be different, basically we’re all doing the same job with the same aim of delivering the load and the vehicle safely. I’m keen to ensure that the drivers I train, walk out of my classroom with more knowledge of their job and a genuine pride in their profession.”
If for any reason, Ian is unable to take the course, Nic Chaviaris, the owner of Driver Hire Gatwick will step into Ian’s shoes. Nic was one of the first Driver Hire office owners to complete his JAUPT training accreditation six years ago.
Driver Hire Gatwick has its own dedicated training suite at our Gleneagles Court offices. Light and airy with all the latest training equipment, it all helps to create a great atmosphere for worthwhile, valuable Driver CPC training. Our training room can accommodate up to 20 trainees.
Free tea, coffee, biscuits, and sweets are available throughout your training day. However, we don’t provide lunch. That means, when lunchtime comes around, you can select whatever takes your fancy at the multitude of shops and takeaways in nearly Crawley town centre.
Whilst there isn’t any onsite parking at Gleneagles Court there is a large and very reasonably priced car park nearby (£2.50 for a full day). There’s also plenty of free on-street parking in the surrounding streets.
If you prefer to use public transport, Crawley train station is within five minutes walk and Crawley town centre is well served by buses.
