Driver CPC Update
The Driving Standards Agency is taking the lead in implementing EU Directive 2003/59 which requires all professional bus, coach and lorry drivers to hold a Driver CPC in addition to their vocational driving licence. It comes into force across all European Union member states on:
• 10 September 2008 for bus and coach drivers
• 10 September 2009 for lorry drivers
In order to maintain their Driver CPC, all category C and D licence holders (including C, C1, C1E and D, D1, DE, D1E) will be required to undertake 35 hours Periodic Training every 5 years.
Driver CPC also introduces a new Initial Qualification for drivers entering the industries after these September dates which they must complete in order to drive professionally.Download the full details pack HERE (Adobe Reader Required) Quality is not that good but readable I will update this A.S.A.P.
