What is CPC Training?

We often get asked ‘What is CPC driver training?’ and ‘What sort of training do you have to do?’ At Driveline, we are accredited to deliver CPC training and we’re happy to help you understand what your CPC training might entail.

First of all – what does CPC stand for and what is CPC?

CPC stands for Certificate of Professional Competence. If you are a professional bus, coach or lorry driver you need to hold a CPC in addition to your vocational driving licence. You can find out more about CPC certification and CPC requirements elsewhere on our website.

What is CPC Driver Training?

CPC driver training typically consists of a range of courses that each last at least seven hours. Each course is aimed at improving your knowledge and awareness of different subjects relating to your job as a professional or public driver, and help you keep up to date with ever-changing legislation.

After each course you don’t need to take any tests or exams, but Driveline will evaluate each session, along with your feedback, to make sure you’ve got the most from the training and are more knowledgeable as a result.

What sort of training topics are there?

Our courses cover just some of the key areas specified by the Government as those you need to train in:

  • Optimising fuel consumption
  • Making best use of vehicle management and recording systems
  • Awareness of the regulations around the carriage of goods and passengers
  • First aid
