Did you know you can be fined up to £1,000 if you drive professionally without Driver CPC?

The Driver CPC certification is now a standard part of professional driving for those professionals who operate a lorry, bus, or coach. It is a standard established by the European Union to ensure all professional drivers are both competent and proficient.

Drivers must complete 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years to keep their Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) up to date. Your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) qualification lasts for 5 years. To keep your Driver CPC you need to do 35 hours of training before your 5-year deadline. The deadline to do your training is shown on your card. It’s up to you when you take the training courses, as long as you do them within the 5-year period.
