Driver CPC Deadline Fast Approaching

Driver CPC Deadline Fast Approaching

You must do Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) periodic training if you’re a lorry, bus or coach driver. The deadline for lorry drivers with acquired rights is 10 September 2014.

So who is exempt from doing the CPC training…?

  • Armed Forces
  • Police Force
  • A fire and rescue authority
  • Drivers of vehicles that are being road tested after being repaired or serviced
  • Drivers of vehicles that are being used as part of an official response to a state of emergency e.g. delivery of sandbags to stop local rivers flooding
  • Drivers of vehicles carrying goods or passengers on a non-commercial basis e.g. transporting your own furniture
  • Drivers of vehicles which are carrying equipment / material that will be used by them e.g. a bricklayer drives to site, unloads their bricks to use them in the construction of a house does not need CPC as driving is not their main activity

If you are a professional driver and you do not come under any of the above exemptions, you will need to complete your 35 hours driver CPC training.
