The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) is a qualification for professional bus, coach and lorry drivers. It has been introduced across Europe with the aim of improving road safety and maintaining high standards of driving.
CPC for existing lorry, bus and coach drivers: All professional LGV and PCV (lorry and bus) drivers must hold a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) qualification. Existing professional drivers are deemed to hold the qualification by ‘acquired rights’, but must complete 35 hours of periodic training within the five year introductory period to qualify for renewal.
You must do 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years to keep your Driver CPC.
