What is Driver CPC?

Under a European Union Directive, professional drivers of lorries over 3.5 tonnes or Passenger Carrying Vehicles (PCV) with 9 or more seats must usually obtain a Driver CPC in addition to a vocational driving licence. 

This must be maintained with 5 x 7 hours of periodic training every 5 years or the certificate will lapse.
