Information On The CPC Driver Training Course
The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) was introduced in:
- 2008 for bus and coach drivers.
- 2009 for lorry drivers.
Drivers who drive for a living had to start taking the Driver CPC initial qualification from then.
Existing drivers were given ‘acquired rights’ which took their previous experience into account.
To stay within the rules, both new and existing drivers must then do 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years.
Making Roads Safer – The Driver CPC Syllabus
The Driver CPC syllabus aims to keep drivers up to date on things like how to:
- Load vehicles safely and securely.
- Make sure passengers are comfortable and safe.
- Apply the rules about professional driving, e.g. Driver’s Hours.
- Access emergency situations and give first aid.
- Optimise fuel consumption.
- Prevent trafficking in illegal immigrants.
Drive Qualification Card (DQC)
You get a driver qualification card (DQC) when you pass the Driver CPC initial qualification or complete 35 hours of periodic training.
You must carry this while driving a large goods vehicle or passenger-carrying vehicle professionally.
You can get a £50 fixed penalty for driving professionally without having your DQC with you.
