Driver Risk Management

Driver CPC

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.

With very few exceptions, the Driver CPC is now compulsory for almost all professional drivers of vehicles using a category C, C1, C+E or C1+E licence and driving ‘for hire or reward’.

Following the 10th September 2014 deadline for the initial qualification, all drivers must undertake 35 hours’ periodic training every five years, to keep their Driver CPC valid. Training must be undertaken in 7-hour blocks and the best way to do this is to spread the training over several years.

Driver Hire Training runs regular Driver CPC training courses around the UK. You can find more information on Driver CPC training, including details of courses and book and pay online by visiting or by contacting your Driver Hire office.


It can be hard to find the time for learning new skills, or perhaps just topping up what you already know. eLearning from Driver Hire provides you with high quality training and assessments which can be completed any time, anywhere.

Our range of eLearning courses includes several carefully selected topics, designed by subject experts which provide quick, easy and fun training to engage learners.
