Steve Pinchen, Licence Bureau

Licence Bureau has launched its new Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) remote training programme.

The programme will be split into three areas: Modular 3.5-hour Driver CPC, 7hr Driver CPC and FORS Professional CPC courses.

All nine courses will be delivered via virtual classrooms online and are designed to help reduce road risks for fleet operators by developing drivers’ knowledge, competence, skills and performance.

Steve Pinchen, sales director at Licence Bureau, said: “It’s another great addition to our compliance portfolio and sees us continue to innovate our offering to meet the changing requirements of modern-day business.

“We know the world of driver compliance has and continues to evolve in line with business practices, and our aim is to ensure improved road safety remains a top priority and is accessible to all.”

The 3.5hr modules cover driver safety awareness; driver hours; driver distractions; driver health and wellbeing; safe loading and load security; and speed awareness.

The 7hr courses cover: driver safety awareness; traffic laws and daily checks; driver hours; driver impairment/drink and drugs; and driver first aid.

Accredited as part of the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS), Licence Bureau’s FORS Professional Course offering includes safe urban driving; van smart; and LoCITY Driving courses as part of its FORS Professional Driver CPC portfolio.

The FORS Professional Driver CPC Courses all currently require some form of physical delivery and are available across the UK.

Fleet News Awards + Commercial Fleet Awards 2021

The Fleet News Awards is moving to a new date for 2021.

Traditionally held in March, next year the awards night moves to June 29 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. It will also for the first time incorporate the Commercial Fleet Awards to create an unparalleled celebration that honours and recognises excellence across every part of the fleet sector.

Stephen Briers, editor-in-chief of Fleet News, said: “With the industry in turmoil due to the coronavirus pandemic, we had a chance to reflect and review our awards proposition for 2021. While going virtual is an option, and one we are very excited about with our Fleet & Mobility Live show in November, we believe that an awards evening is also a networking evening and a chance to meet old friends and make new acquaintances in a relaxed environment.

“For many guests, it’s their industry highlight of the year. That’s why we decided to move the date to give us a better chance of being live at the Grosvenor House.”

Fleet News Awards 2021, incorporating Commercial Fleet Awards, will offer a unique opportunity to bring together the entire fleet sector to celebrate and honour the best people, companies and vehicles.

It is set to become the biggest and most important night in fleet. Further details about awards categories, judges and auditing will be released in January when Fleet News officially launches the Fleet News Awards 2021.
