RTITB Survey Reveals Drivers Positive Towards Driver CPC


Author : Molokini

A recent survey of more than 800 LGV drivers by RTITB, the UKs leading Driver CPC consortium, has shown that the majority of those surveyed (74 per cent) do not feel Driver CPC has had a negative impact on the industry. 

The research, conducted earlier in 2016, also showed that one third of drivers agree that the introduction of Driver CPC has been a good thing, and only 24 per cent stated that Driver CPC training requirements would affect the likelihood of them remaining in the industry.  

“It’s a shame when I hear that some LGV drivers are still unconvinced by Driver CPC and I sometimes see research that reflect this. Our survey was conducted with drivers which attended RTITB training so I hope that the positivity in the results reflects the professionalism and quality of our courses,” says Laura Nelson, Managing Director for RTITB. 

Laura continues “In light of the current shortage of skilled drivers it is a worry that continued professional development isn’t yet convincing drivers to remain within the profession in the future. We believe that driving is an extremely skilled profession and design our Driver CPC courses with this in mind.”

Driver CPC from RTITB, enables training providers and employers to create Driver CPC courses, uniquely tailored to their customer and business needs.  The RTITB CourseBuilder library currently covers 110 topics all of which aim to improve driver behaviour and are delivered through a wide selection of highly engaging and interactive sessions. To optimise driver attention and engagement, no session lasts longer than 35 minutes and each session can be delivered in a variety of ways including quizzes, video led discussion, working party style discussions and case study based learning.

“We hope that we can continue to help more drivers see Driver CPC as a positive part of a very important industry,” says Laura. “Treating drivers as professionals and delivering Driver CPC courses that improve both skill and career development are key to changing the perceptions about our industry.”
