Driver CPC – What’s it all about?
The Driver CPC is for professional LGV and PCV drivers. It is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of drivers, and enhance the safety on our roads, as a requirement of EU Directive 2003/59.
Existing LGV drivers benefit from ‘acquired rights’ and do not have to take a fresh driving test. However, they must undertake 35 hours’ periodic training before 10th September 2013 (Bus or Coach)10th September 2014 (LGV / Truck) to keep their Driver CPC valid.
New drivers gaining a category D1 D, C, C1, or C+E licence now have to obtain the initial Driver CPC in addition to their licence to drive professionally. They must then undertake periodic training every 5 years to keep their Driver CPC valid.
There are some exemptions but the Driver CPC is now compulsory for most professional drivers. Training must be undertaken in 7-hour blocks and the best way for any driver to meet their obligations is to spread their training over several years.
