The UK is seemingly on the path to leave the EU, the government has made a commitment to keep the requirement of the Drivers Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) for PCV and lorry drivers. Currently, professional drivers, with some exceptions, must pass an initial CPC test (unless they have acquired rights), valid for five years, and undergo 35 hours of periodic training every five years.
An amendment has been made to the legislation surrounding Driver CPC. The changes are to adjust such language and references to recognise the UK is no longer a member State of the EU. This is to eliminate any ambiguity when the country leaves the block, but otherwise maintains the DCPC regime intact in the UK.
