Franchisees Help Driver Hire Notch a Notable First

Franchisees in the Driver Hire network have helped Driver Hire’s subsidiary company, Driver Hire Training, pass a notable – and probably unique – first. Working together they’ve delivered over 100,000 Driver CPC driver training days.

Driver Certificate of Professional Training (Driver CPC) is a must have vocational qualification for goods vehicle drivers. Without it, a goods vehicle driver can no longer drive professionally.

When Driver CPC was introduced in 2009, Driver Hire quickly recognised that it offered a potential additional revenue stream for its franchisees. With this in mind, they established Driver Hire Training and set about creating a nationwide training network.

Franchisees were offered the opportunity to undertake the required training to become Driver CPC trainers themselves. Many of them did.

As a result Driver CPC training is now a key ‘added value’ service for Driver Hire. Over the past two years alone the network as a whole has delivered an average of fifty training courses per week nationwide.

As well as its classroom-based Driver CPC training, Driver Hire Training provides online training. It also provides information and training materials to assist both employers and employees deepen their understanding of EU Drivers Hours, Working Time Regulations and other key industry legislation.

Tony Goacher, Driver Hire’s Divisional Managing Director, eServices & Training, added:

Delivering 100,000 driver training days speaks volumes about the quality of the training our franchisees deliver. And, of course, it continues to be a useful addition to their income stream over and above their earnings from our core recruitment business.”
