Driver CPC Training

Driver CPC stands for Driver Certificate of Professional Competence and is required by law for all HGV (C1, C or CE) and PCV (D1, D or DE) drivers, with some exceptions. Click here to submit a CPC enquiry.


There are two types of Driver CPC:


Initial CPC
This is required for newly qualified drivers (since September 2009).


It consists of two modules/tests, both of which you must pass to be issued with your Driver Qualification (CPC) card.


Periodic Training
Required by drivers who passed their practical driving test before September 2009, or who have previously held a CPC entitlement.


Periodic training is predominantly classroom based training, but can be incorporated into practical training such as our Fork Lift Truck, Lorry Mounted Crane or ADR courses.


Drivers require 35 hours of periodic training every five years to maintain their CPC entitlement.
