Driver CPC

The Driver CPC  is an EU programme, which aims to improve driving standards and road safety throughout all EU member states.

All professional truck drivers must obtain a Driver CPC  if they wish to continue to drive for a living. The Driver CPC is obtained by attending an approved training course at an approved training centre.

There are two types of Driver CPC:

Initial - for drivers of vehicles above 3.5 tonne. Requires that a case study and a practical examination be passed before being able to drive professionally. The 5 yearly Periodic Driver CPC becomes a requirement from the date of passing the Initial Driver CPC.

Periodic - All commercial LGV drivers need to complete 35 hours of approved training every 5 years. The 35 hours can be split into 1 day sessions, with a duration of 7 hours.  Sessions of 3.5 hours are also allowable provided the second 3.5 hour session commences within 24 hours of the completion of the first session.
