Driver CPC

What is Driver CPC?

This is a new qualification that applies to all bus, coach and lorry drivers across the European Union, to maintain high driving standards. Driver CPC stands for 'Certificate of Professional Competence'.


Who's affected?

From September 2009, all newly qualified LGV Drivers (Cat C1, Cat C & Cat CE) must complete additional training in addition to their LGV Driving Test & Theory Test. This training is known as Module 2 & Module 4.

All drivers who held at least a Category C1 entitlement prior to this date must have completed 35 hours of periodic training before the 10th September 2014. Each training course must be a minimum of 7 hours in duration. Training can be spread over 5 years or be taken in one week.

Once you have passed your initial CPC, you may think thats it. Unfortunately that is not the case, your Driver CPC lasts for 5 years. To maintain your Driver CPC you will need to complete 35 hours of Periodic Training every 5 years if you wish to drive professionally.
