The Drivers Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) was introduced in September 2009 for LGV’s and September 2008 for PCV’s. The CPC was introduced to ensure that not only can vehicles be driven safely, but that they can be operated in a professional manner.
The CPC is applicable to all vehicles being driven for hire and reward (work) for Categories C1 / D1 and above. All drivers were given 5 years to complete the 35 hours of mandatory training. In addition, each driver must complete 35 hours of CPC training every 5 years. This can be done in 7 hour modules or as a 35 hour block booking.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE YOUR CPC THEN YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO WORK. IT IS A CRIMINAL OFFENCE TO DRIVE WITHOUT YOUR CPC.
