COVID-19: Driver CPC requirement temporary changes

Temporary changes to allow bus and lorry drivers who cannot complete compulsory Driver CPC training to continue to drive.

Most professional lorry and bus drivers must complete 35 hours periodic training every 5 years to maintain a Driver CPC card (sometimes called a ‘driver qualification card’ or ‘DQC’).

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak it may be difficult for drivers to complete the required training.

The Department for Transport has therefore put in place temporary changes in professional driver qualification requirements

This means that drivers whose Driver CPC card expires in the period from 1 March 2020 to 30 September 2020 can continue driving.
