Driver CPC Training

CPCAPPROVEDDriver CPC (Driver Certificate of Professional Competence) introduces a new Initial Qualification for drivers entering the lorry and bus industries which they must complete in order to drive professionally. All professional / vocational bus, coach and lorry drivers must undertake periodic training in order to maintain their Driver CPC.

The Driver CPC for PCV drivers was implemented on 10th September 2008, and for LGV drivers it was implemented on 10th September 2009.




T.M.S. are now approved by the Driver Standard Agency to deliver period training for driver CPC qualification.

In 2003 the EU passed the Driver CPC Directive which effects all LGV and PCV drivers.

The directive became effective from 10th September 2008 for the PCV sector and from 10th September 2009 for the LGV sector.

The aim of the directive is to increase the amount of knowledge that new drivers need before they can drive and to introduce a compulsory 35 hours of accredited training for all drivers every five years.

TMS will be offering all our clients accredited training based around the application of the regulations.

Tachograph use (analogue and digital), Drivers Hours & Working Time regulations will be covered in a seven hour module conducted on your premises (subject to suitability) or in our training school.

The course designed by TMS can be conducted in a full day or in two half day modules.

Don’t be distracted by unproven trainers. Contact Mike Ryder or Trevor White on 0115 9206762 or 0115 9269377 to discuss how TMS can help you through the new legislation.
