Don’t leave your driver CPC to the last minute

It is only 12 months until the second phase deadline so you’ll need to arrange driver training days as soon as possible.

HGV drivers are legally required to complete 35 hours training over a five-year period to remain legally compliant. If they don’t, they’ll lose their Driver Qualification Card (DQC) and won’t be allowed to drive.

DVSA will issue fines of up to £1,000 for anyone driving professionally without a DQC.

A lot of hauliers believe that DCPC will no longer be required after Brexit, but this isn’t the case. Drivers will still need to complete their training regardless of Brexit outcome.

The second phase deadline for periodic Driver CPC is 9 September 2019.
