Driver Risk Management

Driver CPC

The Driver CPC is for professional LGV and PCV drivers. Originally a requirement of EU Directive 2003/59, whilst the UK was a member of the European Union, the Government has made it clear that the provisions for Driver CPC will remain in force. It is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of drivers, and enhance safety on our roads.

With very few exceptions, the Driver CPC is 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 offers regular Driver CPC courses, including evenings and weekends. Courses are now delivered online so that you can get the training you need at a time and place that is convenient for you.  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.
