What is Driver CPC?

Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) introduces a new initial qualification to new drivers, which increases the amount of knowledge that drivers need before they can drive.

Who does it apply to?

All new and existing drivers wanting to drive professionally or require an LGV or PCV licence in order to do their job are required to do it.
