Driver CPC Training


Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) training is continual professional development throughout a professional bus, coach or lorry driver’s career. Once you pass your Driver CPC, you’ll be issued a Driver Qualification Card (DQC).

It is a legal requirement that drivers complete 35 hours of DCPC every five years. This can be completed in a block of 5 days or as individual day sessions across the five years.

The driver CPC can give the most experienced driver a chance to ensure they are up to date with current legislation and to refresh existing knowledge. This course can also provide specific sector knowledge to anyone relatively new to the industry. We design our courses to provide drivers with the necessary information to ensure they follow best practices and can work safely and legally.
