What is CPC?
The Driver CPC is for LGV and PCV drivers who drive professionally throughout the UK, it is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional LGV and PCV drivers throughout their working life.

There are two parts to the legislation:

Part 1: The Initial Qualification must be achieved by new LGV and PCV drivers along with their vocational licence to enable them to use their licence professionally.

Part 2: Periodic Training; 35 hours of training every 5 years must be attended by all professional drivers

Bains provide CPC Training and can explain all aspects of this new EU requirement. Call us on 020 8651 0062 for further information or alternatively visit the official CPC Website

Who will be affected?
New drivers who acquire a PCV licence (D1, D1+E, D, D+E licence) after the 10th September 2008 and/or an LGV entitlement (C1, C1+E, C or C+E licence) after the 10th September 2009 will have to obtain the Initial qualification in addition to their licence to drive professionally.

New drivers who are still able to obtain a vocational licence but can defer the Initial Qualification by up to a maximum of one year whilst, still being able to drive professionally.An example of a National Vocational Training programme would be an Apprenticeship in Driving Goods Vehicles. Drivers intending to use this concession will have to register with the Driving Standards Agency.

Existing drivers who held a licence prior to the 10th September 2008 (PCV) or the 10th September 2009 (LGV) are exempt from the Initial Qualification.

All professional drivers (new and existing drivers) must complete a total of 35 hours Periodic Training every 5 years following their "acquired rights" or Initial Qualification to keep their Driver CPC valid. Existing drivers must complete their Periodic Training by September 2013 (PCV) and September 2014 (LGV).
