Since the introduction of graduated fixed penalties in 2009, drivers risk being fined at the roadside if defects are found on their vehicles which should have been picked up by a pre-use inspection.

This 7 hour, eye opening Driver CPC course brings drivers up to speed with graduated fixed penalties and provides awareness of the type of things that should be checked, what constitutes a defect on the vehicle and how to ensure that you don’t receive graduated fixed penalties to ultimately avoid getting points on your licence…..
