The Driver CPC for Professional Drivers

The driver CPC was created to continually improve the knowledge and skills of professional drivers so that they could keep up to date with new technology and techniques. As they’re introduced, you’re more likely going to be able to utilise them if you’re undergoing regular training. If you are a qualified lorry, bus, or coach driver, you are required to possess a driver CPC.

Legislations

The Driver CPC has two parts to its legislation:

Initial Qualification: This must be achieved by new LGV and PCV drivers alongside the vocational licence, improving your knowledge and skills before you begin driving professionally. It consists of two parts:

- Part One - Case Studies
- Part Two - Vehicle Safety Demonstration

Periodic Training: This requires drivers to undertake 35 hours of training within every five-year period, developing and building on existing skills and knowledge and improving safety for both yourself and other road users.

Drivers with ‘acquired rights’

Having ‘acquired rights’ means that you don’t have to take the Driver CPC initial qualification because of your existing driving experience.

You have acquired rights if you got your vocational licence before the dates shown in the table.
