   Driver CPC - Fuel Efficent Driving Course

The Driver CPC is for professional LGV and PCV drivers. It is a requirement of EU Directive
2003/59, which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of drivers, and enhance safety on our roads.

All professional drivers, driving 'for hire and reward' (on licence categories C, C1, C+E or C1+E for goods vehicles) are now required to have completed their Driver CPC and must carry a Driver Qualification Card (DQC) at all times when driving professionally.

Driver CPC training is an ongoing requirement*. The DQC is valid for five years, and having gained their card, all drivers must undertake 35 hours' periodic training during those five years, or they will not be permitted to renew their card. Training must be undertaken in 7-hour blocks and the best way for any driver to meet their obligations is to spread their training over several years.

* There are a small number of exemptions but the Driver CPC has been compulsory for most professional drivers since 10th September 2014
