CPC Training

The Drivers CPC by JAUPT (Joint Approvals Unit For Periodic Training) Implementation date was 10th September 2009 (2008 for Bus and Coach Drivers) and it was introduced across the EU simultaneously. The DSA is responsible for the Implementation of the drivers CPC in the UK.

People who are affected by the Drivers CPC is everyone who is licensed to drive over 3.5 tonne Vehicles Category C1 (Post 1997 - 3.5 tonne to 7.5 tonne), Category C, Category C+E, Including Owner-Drivers, and driving for reward or payment (wages) The JAUPT clearly state that NO CPC = NO ENTITLEMENT TO WORK

All drivers who hold C or D (Includes category C1 and D1) licences at the implementation date are required to have had 35 hours approved CPC periodic training before the below dates and evidenced during that period

LGV Drivers > September 2014 PCV Drivers > September 2013

Once you've completed your 35 hours training you'll be sent a Drivers Qualification Car (DQC) to prove you hold the drivers CPC. You'll need to carry your DQC whilst driving. Not carrying the DQC whilst driving or failing to produce it when asked to do so by the police or Vehicle & Operator Services Agency (VOSA) enforcement officers are offences, as is driving without a Driver CPC.

If Passed LGV licence after 10th September 2009

If a candidate has passed their LGV Test after the 10th September 2009 they will have to complete a Case Studies Test which is held at a Pearson Professional Centre, it is very similar to a Theory test. Once they have completed this they must complete an Initial CPC (PART 4) before they can drive for payment. When a candidate has completed an Initial CPC (part 4) they will be issued with their DQC card and that candidate will be able to drive for payment. The candidates 5 years date starts from when he passed his Initial CPC and he will then have to complete 35 hours Periodic training before the 5 years date.
