What is Driver CPC?

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 professed aim of improving road safety and helping to maintain high standards of driving.

Companies now know that without Driver CPC you will not be able to drive for them, this means that they will not allow you to apply for any driving positions for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes (including minibuses). All prospective and existing professional drivers of lorries, buses and coaches are affected by this. So, whether hiring a new recruit or managing the transition to CPC certified drivers, it is essential that you are aware of what this new licensing requirement involves, and complete these requirements as of the 9th September 2014. This means any drivers who have missed this deadline cannot drive professionally until they have completed their CPC training.
