Are you a PCV or an LVC driver? Acorn can train you on a number of CPC modules.
All professional PCV and LGV drivers must hold a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) if they want to drive for a living, which is renewable every five years.
latest news: DCPC: Vosa sends out a clear message
DCPC non-compliance will not be tolerated.
With the deadline of September 2013 fast approaching and many drivers and operators still not completing the three days minimum to date DCPC training, VOSA is now sending out a strong message to the industry that the costs of non-compliance are high and the risk for PCV drivers is now a reality. LGV drivers will come under the same pressure from VOSA with the deadline of September 2014.
By not completing their DCPC, drivers and operators will face the following risks:
- penalties for the driver:
Driver Qualification Card will not be issued
Graduated Fixed Penalty at the road side – operator will also be fined
- penalties for the operator:
OCRS is put at risk
Operator's licence curtailment
Start clocking your training hours now. Acorn provides training for a number of CPC modules.
about Driver CPC
The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) has been introduced across the European Union to maintain high driving standards, improve road safety and improve the knowledge and skills of the professional PCV and LGV driver. It has been developed as a requirement of the EU Directive 2003 / 59 introduced in 2007.
For more information about Driver CPC, such as how to remain compliant or how the Driver CPC status is evidenced, please consult our frequently asked questions.
