You must do 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years to keep your Driver’s Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC).
When is best to take Driver CPC periodic training?
It’s up to you when you take the training courses, as long as you do them within 5 years of passing your test.
When the 5-year period starts from 5 years before your current Driver CPC qualification runs out?
Not from the date you completed your last 35 hours of training.
Deadline for new professional drivers
