CPC Training  

driverCPCThe Driver CPC is for LGV and PCV drivers who drive professionally throughout the UK. It has been 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.

The Initial Driver CPC Qualification must be achieved by new LGV and PCV drivers along with their vocational licence to enable them to use their licence professionally. This came into effect from 2008 for PCV and 2009 for LGV. Following the completion of the Driver CPC qualification all drivers will then need to complete the periodic training (the same as a driver with the acquired rights).

All Periodic Driver CPC Training must consist of 35 hours of training, every 5 years. This is attendance based and must be completed by all professional drivers.

Who’s responsibility?

It is the driver’s responsibility to gain the Driver CPC qualification; it is also an offence not to carry the card whilst driving professionally once you have been issued with one.


It’s the company’s responsibility to make sure all drivers have all current and up to date licences and qualifications (i.e. Driver CPC). If the company are not conducting these checks then the company could be fined and their operating licence could be in jeopardy. Please also remember what the implications of your drivers not undergoing the Driver CPC training by September 2014! Could you operate without them?
