Driver CPC is here!
The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) is a legal obligation for LGV drivers from 10th September 2009. From that date all drivers with a category C, C1 and C+E licence which is used for vocational purposes, must complete 35 hours’ training at some time before 10th September 2014.
Commenting on the development, Richard Armitage, Driver Hire’s Head of Training said: “The Driver CPC is a commendable initiative. It creates a recognised professional standard for goods vehicle drivers – something their skills have long deserved. Whilst existing HGV drivers have five years to complete the required training, our recommendation is to start straight away. We will shortly be announcing a range of options to help our drivers and our customers to deal with the new rules. For further information, contact your Driver Hire office.”
