Driver CPC Training  

Driver CPC Training  

Do you drive a HGV or LGV as part of your job? 
 
New drivers acquiring a vocational licence entitlement after the relevant implementation dates (Sept 08 or Sept 09) and intending to work as a driver must obtain a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) before they can drive professionally. 
 
To minimise cost and inconvenience, the DSA will offer new drivers the opportunity to acquire the Driver CPC at the same time as they obtain their vocational driving licence. 
 
Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) has been introduced across the European Union to maintain high driving standards and improve road safety. All professional bus, coach and lorry drivers must hold a Driver CPC if they intend to drive for a living and both new and existing drivers must complete a total of 35 hours Periodic Training within the 5 years following their ‘acquired rights' or initial Driver CPC, in order to keep their Driver CPC valid. Drivers will then need to complete a minimum of 35 hours of periodic training every five years for as long as they wish to continue to drive professionally.
