Transport Manager CPC and Operator Licence Awareness Training (OLAT)

Driver Hire Training is established as one of the UK’s leading providers of Driver CPC training, and we are proud of the high customer satisfaction scores that we achieve. These scores reflect both the quality of the resources and the professionalism of the trainers. This industry expertise has been applied to two courses that have been developed for transport managers and other non-driving professionals.

Our Transport Manager CPC courses are scheduled to coincide with the regular programme of examinations and are ideal for professionals who are responsible for the company’s O-Licence, providing everything they will require for the exam. Meanwhile our OLAT course is suitable for any staff who have an active role in the legal compliance of the transport operation, and provides an up-to-date overview of the latest legislation and guidance from the Traffic Commissioners on compliance.
