What is Driver CPC?
The Driver CPC is for HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) and LPSV (Large Public Service Vehicle) drivers who drive professionally throughout the Island of Ireland and Europe. The Driver CPC has been developed as a requirement of the EU Directive 2003/59, which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional HGV and LPSV drivers throughout their working life.
There are two parts to the legislation:
- The Initial Qualification that must be achieved by new HGV and LPSV drivers along with their vocational licence to enable them to use their licence professionally.
- Periodic Training, which involves all existing professional drivers undertaking 35 hours refresher training over 5 years.
If you have a full licence for a truck or bus before the Driver CPC comes into force on the 10th September 2008 for buses and before 10th September 2009 for trucks, you will automatically get your Driver CPC licence without having to take the tests. This is called acquired rights and is based on your experience to date. In order to keep your Driver CPC licence up to date you must do 35 hours Driver CPC Training during each five year period. This requirement means that the Drivers MUST have 7 hours training per year, excluded from this time is any administration or meal breaks. These course are highly regulated with Quality Control Inspectors sitting in unannounced.
If you want to become a professional bus driver after the 10th September 2008 or a professional truck driver after the 10th September 2009 you will have to do a Driver CPC examination. The examination includes:
- A two hour multiple choice theory test,
- A two hour case study theory test,
- A 90 minute driving test, and
- A 30 minute practical test.
