What is Driver CPC?
The Driver Certificates of Professional Competence (CPC) is for Large Goods Vehicles (LGV) and Passenger Carrying Vehicles (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.
There are two parts to the legislation:
The Initial Qualification must be achieved by new LGV and PCV drivers along with their vocational licence to enable them to use their licence professionally.
Periodic Training; 35 hours of training every 5 years must be attended by all professional drivers.
