What is Driver CPC
Driver CPC is a legal requirement for all professional drivers, both PCV and HGV, under EU Directive 2003/59/EC. Drivers CPC training was created to improve and standardise knowledge for professional drivers, across the UK and EU, with the aim of enhancing driver’s skills.
Who needs to complete CPC training
PCV drivers (Cat D) – All PCV drivers must complete 35 hours of periodic training. Failure to complete training may result in hefty fines for both Driver AND Operating Company.
HGV drivers (C, C1, C+E, C1+E) – New HGV drivers (Passed after 10th September 2009) must complete their “Initial” Driver CPC training after gaining their HGV licence. This is the first requirement to start driving as a professional driver. Initial Drivers CPC training will involve a theory and practical test. After completing the Initial Drivers CPC, new drivers must then complete 35 hours of periodic training. This is the final requirement in being a driving profession in the UK and EU.
Current HGV drivers - (Passed before 10th September 2009), Do not need to take another licence test or initial CPC. However the driving professional must complete 35 hours of CPC periodic training. Failure to complete this training may result in hefty fines for both Driver AND company, with the possibility of a prison sentence for possession of fraudulent documentation.
