Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Periodic Driver CPC)

What is the Driver CPC?

The Driver CPC is a scheme for LGV (and PCV drivers). It is being developed as a requirement of the EU Directive 2003/59 which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional LGV and PCV drivers throughout their working life.

When will the Driver CPC scheme start?

PCV Categories Bus and Coach start 10 September 2008. LGV Categories lorries start 10 September 2009.

How will the Driver CPC affect me?

Depending on your individual circumstances will determine how you acquire the Driver CPC.

  • New drivers acquiring a vocational entitlement after the implementation date will have to obtain an initial qualification. The UK is required to choose between two options on how this is to be done (see below).
  • Existing drivers who already hold a vocational licence on the implementation date will obtain the Driver CPC via "acquired rights".

What will happen once I have my Driver CPC?

Irrespective of when or how a driver obtains the Driver CPC, he/she must complete a total of 35 hours periodic training within the following five years to keep the Driver CPC valid. LGV Drivers acquiring the Driver CPC via acquired rights will have to complete their periodic Driver CPC by 2014.

An individual's circumstances will determine if they acquire the Driver CPC.

  • New drivers acquiring a PCV vocational entitlement (D1, D1+E, D, D+E licence) after the 10th September 2008 and/or an LGV vocational entitlement (C1, C1+E,C or C+E licence) after the 10th September 2009 will have to obtain the initial Driver CPC in addition to their licence to drive professionally.

There are a number of Driver CPC exemptions associated with the Directive. These are listed below:

  • Vehicles with a maximum speed not exceeding 45 Kph
  • Vehicles used by the armed forces, civil defence, and emergency services
  • Vehicles undergoing road tests for technical development, repair or maintenance
  • Vehicles used in states of emergency
  • Vehicles used in the course of driving lessons or examinations
  • Vehicles used for non-commercial carriage of passenger or goods – for personal use
  • Vehicles used for carrying material of equipment to be used by the driver in the course of his or her work, providing that driving the vehicles is not the drivers’ principle activity

Ultimately, it is up the driver and their employer to decide if they are covered by these exemptions, and if necessary, justify it to the competent authority.
