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.
PCV Categories Bus and Coach start 10 September 2008. LGV Categories lorries start 10 September 2009.
Depending on your individual circumstances will determine how you acquire the 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.
There are a number of Driver CPC exemptions associated with the Directive. These are listed below:
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.
