Driver CPC applies to all new and existing drivers who wish to drive professionally and who require an LGV or PCV licence in order to do their job.
Existing Drivers (PCV)
All drivers of PCV vehicles, holding a full category D, D1, D+E or D1+E licence at 10th September 2008, will need to complete 35 hours of periodic training before 10th September 2013, unless exempt. Following this drivers must continue to undertake a further 35 hours of training in every subsequent five-year period in order to retain their Driver CPC. Note: D1 Licence entitlement by virtue of passing a car test pre-1997 (licence Code 101-not for hire or reward). Any driver with this restriction cannot drive professionally.
Existing Drivers (LGV)
All drivers of LGV vehicles, holding a category C, C1, C+E or C1+E Licence at 10th September 2009, will need to complete the 35 hours of periodic training before 10th September 2014, unless exempt. This also includes drivers who hold C1 entitlement by virtue of passing a car test pre-1997 and drivers who hold HGV class 1, 2 or 3, gained prior to 1991. Following this, drivers must continue to undertake a further 35 hours of training in every subsequent five-year period in order to retain their Driver CPC.
New drivers who gain their initial Driver CPC after 10th September 2008 (PCV) or 10th September 2009 (LGV) will immediately begin their cycle of periodic training from the test pass date and will need to complete 35 hours of training within five years of attaining their initial Driver CPC and then complete 35 hours of training every subsequent five years.
Drivers who hold both PCV and LGV licences
Drivers with PCV and LGV licences will have to complete only one course of 35 hours of periodic training every five years; they will not have to undertake 35 hours of training for each licence category.
Drivers with LGV/PCV Licences from other countries
Drivers from other EU member states and drivers from non-EU countries may take their periodic training in the UK if they are are normally resident or working here. Periodic training completed in another EU member state, where the driver is employed, or normally resident, may be taken into account by DSA/DVLA.
