What is Driver CPC?

The European Union published the Driver CPC Directive in 2003, affecting all professional LGV and PCV drivers.

For new drivers it introduces an initial qualification, the Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence), which increases the amount of knowledge that drivers need before they can drive. When combined with licence acquisition tests, the initial qualification includes a four hour theory and two hour driving and practical test.

All drivers, new and existing, must then undertake 35 hours of training every five years to ensure that their Drivers CPC is current. This is known as periodic training. Only courses that have been approved by the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) will count towards the Periodic Training requirement.
