The Vehicle Drivers (Certificate of Professional Competence) Regulations came into effect in 2007 following the Driver CPC EU Directive in 2003. The regulations affect all professional LGV and PCV drivers. For new drivers it introduces a new initial qualification, the Driver CPC, which increases the amount of knowledge that drivers need before they can drive. When combined with licence acquisition tests, the initial qualification includes a four-hour theory test and a two-hour driving and practical test. All professional drivers, new and existing, will then have to undertake 35 hours of training every five years to ensure that their Driver CPC is current. This is known as periodic training. Only courses that have been approved and are being delivered by a training centre that has been approved by the Joints Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) will count towards the periodic training requirement. Periodic training is skills of each driver for example by enabling them to keep up-to-date with ever-changing legislation.
