Driver CPC Training

Driver 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. in conjunction with our business partners can 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 can offer our clients accredited training based around the application of the regulations.
