Driver CPC is a Certificate of Professional Competence issued to bus and truck drivers.

It was first introduced across the EU in 2008 for professional bus drivers and in 2009 for professional truck drivers.

Professional drivers fall into two categories from a Driver CPC Training perspective:

  • Drivers who were already working in as professional drivers when the scheme was put in place
  • Drivers who are new to the profession

To keep your Driver CPC Training up to date, you must then do 35 hours of periodic training over the next five years. Training is on a one-day-per-year basis. Each day must consist of seven hours.

Periodic Driver CPC  Training is compulsory and is designed to help you be:

  • A safer and socially responsible professional driver
  • More environmentally aware and cost conscious
  • Physically healthier


Driver CPC Training Course content:

There are six training modules in total. Each module lasting seven hours, with additional reading material to cover specific areas.


  • Control of the vehicle and eco-driving techniques
  • Minimising risks and managing emergencies in the transport industry
  • Health and safety for the professional driver
  • Role of the professional driver in the transport industry
