What is Driver CPC Training?
The Driver CPC Training (Certificate of Professional Competence) has been introduced across the EU and Britain to maintain high driving standards and improve road safety. All professional bus, coach and lorry drivers must hold a Driver CPC card if they want to drive for a living. It applies to drivers who drive lorries of 3.5t and above, and buses with 9 or more seats.
How will it affect you?
All drivers will need to complete a minimum of 35 hours of periodic training within every five-year period. Examinations are not included in the training and as such there is no pass / fail.
If you already hold a vocational licence prior to the relevant start date then you will hold acquired rights, which means that your first five-year period is covered – buses until 9th Sept 2013 and lorries until 9th Sept 2014. To keep your CPC and continue driving after this date, you will need to undertake regular periodic training.
I hold both a PCV and LGV licence; am I required to do two sets of periodic training?
No, only one set of periodic training needs to be completed every five years.
* New rules: in an attempt to bring qualified drivers back into the industry, allows those who have done NO CPC, to qualify for the first time by choosing to carry out the INITIAL CPC, ie: you do a CPC case study test and the one day CPC ‘show me tell me’ practical test. (Modules 2 and 4) please call or contact us for more details.
