Driver CPC Training

***Driver CPC - JAUPT Announcement***

Should you be involved in any aspect of Driver CPC please take a moment to read the following announcement from JAUPT regarding the unnecessary repetition of driver CPC training subjects.

Commercial Operator Training Solutions Ltd has designed this comprehensive set of Driver CPC, perfect for drivers and the busy operator.  Particular care and attention has been given to ensure that the modules have been designed to cover the entire syllabus contained within the European Training Directive 2003/59 EC.  Our courses have been designed by our Training Manager and are not ‘off the shelf’ or bought from a consortium.  They represent what our customers have asked for and they are purposefully not of a generic nature.

Who does the Driver CPC affect?

All professional drivers of lorries over 3.5 tonnes, buses, coaches and minibuses, unless they qualify for an exemption.

 
When does the legislation start?

For PSV drivers it started on 10th Sept 2008; for all LGV drivers the start date was 10th Sept 2009.

 
Does a driver need to start their Periodic Training in 2008 or 2009 or can they wait until 2013 or 2014?

Best practice to maximise efficient implementation of Driver CPC requirements would be to provide 7 hours training each year.  It is possible to provide 35 hours of training in 2014, however, this will involve operators taking their drivers off the road for a week at a time.

 
Will Driver CPC apply to foreign nationals?

Yes.  Driver CPC applies across all EU Member States therefore all of those drivers will be required to qualify and hold a Driver CPC in exactly the same way as UK drivers.

 
What is DVSA’s involvement?

DVSA is leading, on behalf of the Department for Transport, the implementation of the project.  As well as legislation, this involves establishing and implementing arrangements for training and testing for both the initial qualification and periodic training.

What type of training can count towards Periodic Training?

There is not a prescribed type of training; it may be classroom based or ‘in-vehicle’.  It can be whatever suits the needs of the driver at that time – but it has to be approved training, by an approved centre and be overseen by a trainer.

 
If a driver uses both PSV and LGV licences professionally, do they need to do two lots of 35 hrs periodic training every 5 years?

No.  The Directive states that the holder of a vocational licence for PSV/LGV need only complete a 35 hours course attendance in a 5 year period.

 
What processes will be in place to ensure that training centres offer good practice in the training that they provide to drivers/employers?

The Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) will monitor good practice through the QA process and approval process.  Additionally, employers will be expecting to see benefits from the training and will drive good practice by choosing providers who give good value training.

 
What licence categories will Driver CPC affect?

C1, C, C+E, D1, D and D+E
