Why have I got to do Drivers CPC?
You must do 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years to keep your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) to drive a lorry, bus or coach. You can be fined up to £1,000 for driving professionally without Driver CPC. You can check how many hours of training you’ve done in the current 5-year period. You only need to complete one set of training every 5 years if you drive both lorries and buses professionally. You have to do the training in the country where you work or normally live.
Why should I take the training?
Your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) qualification lasts for 5 years. To keep your Driver CPC you need to do 35 hours of training before your 5-year deadline. The deadline to do your training is shown on your card. It’s up to you when you take the training courses, as long as you do them within the 5-year period. All of these courses can be run as in-house courses in order to minimise the cost. Please ring for more details.
