WHAT IS DRIVER CPC (DCPC)?

The Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) is a scheme for LGV and PCV drivers who drive professionally throughout the UK. It is being developed as a requirement of the EU Directive 2003/59, which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional LGV and PCV drivers throughout their working life.

There are 2 types of Driver CPC - INITIAL Training for new drivers and PERIODIC Training for drivers with acquired rights or those who passed their test before 10th Sept 2008 for PCV's and 10th Sept 2009 for LGV's.

DO I NEED TO DO DRIVER CPC?

All drivers need to complete a minimum of 35 hours of periodic training every five years. The training will require attendance at courses but will not require drivers to take or pass further examinations. How you gain your Driver CPC will depend upon when you obtained your vocational licence.
If you are a bus or coach driver and held your vocational licence (D*, D1*, DE*, D1E*) prior to 10 September 2008 you have acquired rights until 9 September 2013. If you are a lorry driver and held your vocational licence (C, C1, CE, C1E) prior to 10 September 2009 you have acquired rights until 9 September 2014. To keep your Driver CPC and continue driving professionally beyond this date, you will need to complete 35 hours of periodic training. 

Fees:

The cost is £76.00 inc VAT and JAUPT upload fee for stand-alone classroom-based courses. Ask about 5 days for the price of 4. (£304.00 for all 5 days = £60.80 per day)
‘Add-On’ DCPC – ADR – Collect 21 hours of DCPC whilst doing your ADR training at a cost of £134.25 inc VAT and JAUPT upload fee.

New drivers will need to pass the initial qualification to gain their vocational driving licence and qualify for their Driver CPC. For a new driver, the requirement to undertake a minimum of 35 hours periodic training to retain their Driver CPC will start once they have passed the initial qualification.
