Transport & Logistics

Drivers require more than just a valid driver’s license to operate in the transport industry…

It is encouraging to see that the majority of bus, coach and lorry drivers who need Driver CPC are participating in periodic training, but we urge all professional drivers and their employers to be aware of the deadlines and make sure they will be able to comply

– DSA’s Chief Executive Rosemary Thew

You must do Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) periodic training if you’re a lorry, bus or coach driver.

You face being fined and even losing your livelihood if you don’t finish your training in time, the Driving Standards Agency has warned.

The Office of the Traffic Commissioner has also reminded operators to be aware of their drivers’ training hours and deadlines to avoid penalties.
