Does everyone need the Initial Driver CPC?
If you've already got an existing LGV/PCV licence (C1, C, CE, C1E, D, D1, DE, and D1E) then you have ‘acquired rights’. Existing bus and coach licence holders have acquired rights up until 9 September 2013 and lorry drivers have acquired rights until 9 September 2014. If you have acquired rights you will not need the Initial Driver CPC.
If your licence allows you to drive minibuses but ‘not for hire or reward’ (Code 101), you do not have acquired rights and will have to take the initial qualification should you wish to drive professionally.
If you have an LGV licence and want to gain an PCV licence, or if you have a PCV licence and want to gain a LGV licence (unless you hold C1 already) you will also need the Initial Driver CPC.
Driver CPC Law is in effect. If you've not completed 35 hours before September 2013 for PCV or September 2014 for LGV, you won't be able to work as a paid driver.
You could face a £1000 fine for working as a driver without a Driver Qualificaton Card.
Take advantage of the special discounts whilst they're still available because as we get closer to the deadline, full rates will apply.
It doesn't matter when you complete your 35 hours - now, next year or just before the deadline - your Driver Qualification Card will be valid until September 2018 for PCV holders and September 2019 for LGV holders.
And after 2013 (PCV)/ 2014 (LGV), you'll need to take another 35 hours Periodic Training before 2018 (PCV)/ 2019 (LGV) to renew your Driver Qualification Card for another five years, and so on, until you decide not to work as a professional driver any more.
