Not completing the training will result in forfeiture of driver qualification.

This Periodic training can be given in two ways: either as individual days of at least 7 hours long (perhaps one day per year for five years) or blocks of consecutive days, up to the maximum of 35 hours during the year.

The minimum length of a training course is 7 hours contact time with the trainer. Where a course of 7 hours is split into two parts the second must start within 24 hours of completion of the first part.
