Continuing professional development (CPD) is a good way to keep your skills up to date. You choose how and when to do the training – it could be a formal course or research on the internet, for example. Your CPD should link with the driver trainer competency framework.

- update your teaching or driving skills
- go to local or national meetings or seminars
- research new vehicles for your business
- spend time developing your business skills
- go on formal courses
- spend time on the internet carrying out research
- network with other driver trainers
