WHY DO I NEED TO DO DRIVER CPC TRAINING?
Driver CPC is an EU directive that came into force in September 2009 (2008 for PCV). This was introduced to improve the professional skills and knowledge of drivers in order to improve road safety and driving efficiency, and requires all LGV drivers to hold a driver certificate of professional competence which must be renewed every 5 years - there is a deadline to undertake this training and this expiry date will be detailed on your Driver Qualification Card.
This will be known as a driver qualification card. Driver CPC was introduced to improve the professional skills and knowledge of drivers in order to improve road safety and driving efficiency
By the 10th September 2014 all professional drivers who drive vehicles over 3.5tonnes must be qualified in Driver CPC.
To gain this qualification, drivers must successfully complete a total of 35 hours of periodic training. This is divided into 5 x individual courses or modules, each lasting 7 x hours (plus any time for lunch breaks etc.).
All drivers will be issued with a Driver Qualification Card and a Certificate on successful completion of the Driver CPC course.
