What is Driver CPC?
The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence
Driver CPC is a set of standards applied to initial driver training and career-long continuing education. It is a set of standards established by the European Union to ensure all professional drivers are both competent and proficient.
CPC certification is now legally required for almost all professional drivers holding Category C or Category D licences. The government recommends all professional lorry, bus, and coach drivers assume they must have the CPC certification in order to drive legally. Any individual or entity who believes the possibility of an exemption exists should consult with a lawyer.
All new drivers seeking to obtain their first Category C or Category D licence undergoes a complete training programme that includes initial CPC training. Along with the CPC training is preparation for the appropriate theory test and the practical skills instruction needed to pass the driver's final two exams. This entire process combined, including all of the tests, is known as the initial CPC qualification.
The driver should understand that he or she can not obtain a commercial driving licence without completing this initial CPC qualification.
