Simply put, without Driver CPC you cannot work or drive professionally.
Who Needs Driver CPC Training?
New drivers who require a PCV / LGV vocational entitlement will have to obtain the initial Qualification in addition to their licence to drive professionally.
If you passed your car test prior to January 1997 you will be classed as an Existing driver. This is known as “acquired rights” (LGV Only).
All professional drivers (new or existing) must complete 35 hours of Periodic Training by September 2013 (PCV) and September 2014 (LGV) to keep their Driver CPC valid.
