DRIVERS CPC

Drivers CPC is a requirement that most people think will go away after Brexit but the truth in the matter is irrespective of movements by some politicians DCPC is here to stay due to the amount of money the government make. At NWTS we have a simple policy to offer relevant training from qualified trainers at a fair rate that does not increase as and when the deadline day gets closer. All our courses can be used for either PSV or LGV and have been designed as 3.5 hr modules so they can fit around the school runs.
