Driver CPC

We provide a range of JAUPT approved courses. The training can be completed in flexible 7 hour blocks. We have scheduled courses in North London and can also provide in-house courses UK wide.

Driver CPC is short for “Driver Certificate of Professional Competence”. The EU passed the Driver CPC EU Directive in 2003. This affects all professional LGV and PCV drivers. For new drivers it introduced a new initial qualification, the Driver CPC, which increased the level of knowledge that drivers need before they can drive.

All drivers, new and existing, now have to undertake 35 hours of training every five years to ensure that their Driver CPC remains valid. This is known as periodic training. Periodic training is designed to confirm and expand on the existing knowledge and skills of each driver to ensure that they continue to be safe, courteous and fuel-efficient drivers. This will also enable drivers to keep up-to-date with ever changing regulations and to benefit from training throughout their whole career.
