What is Driver CPC Training?

What is Driver CPC Training

Driver CPC was introduced by the European Union in 2008 as a mandatory requirement for all coach and bus drivers. As of 2009 it became mandatory for lorry drivers to also carry Driver CPC.

But to fully understand what Driver CPC Training is, we first must understand what exactly Driver CPC is.

What Is Driver CPC?

The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (or Driver CPC for short) is a standard requirement for all professional lorry, coach, and bus drivers. As of 2015, all commercial drivers are expected to carry a valid CPC card.

What Do You Mean By Training?

Once a driver has been presented a Driver CPC card it remains valid for 5 years. Once 5 years has passed, drivers are expected to renew their Driver CPC should they wish to remain a professional driver. To renew an existing card, drivers must take remedial or periodic training known as Driver CPC Training. This consists of 35 hours of classwork serving as not only driver competency training, but also provides each driver with the opportunity for professional development.
