Course Timetable  for  6 Drivers over two days

This is a cost effective format of delivering  a defensive driving course that also qualifies for CPC accreditation of seven hours training for six drivers.

The 3.5 hour theory session is attended by all six drivers on the first morning.  Two drivers then undertake a 3.5 hour in vehicle training session on a ratio of two drivers to one trainer which completes their seven hours of training, as above. The next day the remaining four drivers complete their 3.5 practical session, two drivers a.m. and two p.m.  This completes the seven hours CPC training for these four drivers. 

This format trains six drivers for the cost of two Instructor days. 

Practical sessions must start within 24 hours of the end of the theory session to satisfy JAUPT rules.

Each driver receives a Certificate of Attendance and a full written report.
