What is Driver CPC?

This is a qualification that applies to all bus, coach and lorry drivers across the European Union, to maintain high driving standards. Driver CPC stands for ‘Certificate of Professional Competence’. There are currently no plans for the UK Government to change the requirements for Driver CPC after Brexit so you still need to be aware of your individual training deadline and complete the required training in order to continue as a vocational driver.
