What is Driver CPC Training?

The Driver CPC training legislation was introduced on the 10th September 2009 and affected all LGV drivers, both new and existing and across 27 EC member states.  Every driver will have to undertake 35 hours of ‘Periodic Training’ (broken down into 5 x 7 hour modules) within five years, to ensure that their Driver CPC is kept up to date.

Any driver who drives a vehicle over 3.5 Tonnes must hold a valid driver CPC card or they will not be permitted to drive within the EU.

Our Driver CPC Courses

What you need to know:

  • The Legislation took effect from September 10th 2014
  • your individual circumstances will dictate how you acquire your Driver CPC
  • New drivers taking a LGV driving test (C1, C1+E, C OR C+E LICENCE) will have to obtain their Drivers CPC at the same time as they obtain their license
  • Both new and existing drivers must complete 35 hours of ‘periodic training’ within five years to keep their CPC entitlement
  • Failing to keep your CPC valid will be an offence under EU regulations possibly punishable by fines and / or disqualification
  • Put simply NO DRIVER CPC, NO ENTITLEMENT TO DRIVE

There are some exemptions to the CPC directive. These include:  vehicles with a maximum authorised speed of 45km p/h; armed forces; civil defence; fire service; emergency vehicles; vehicles used for driver CPC driving lessons; non-commercial carriage of passengers or goods for personal use and incidental drivers.  Please note this list is not comprehensive and is used as a guide only.
