What is driver CPC?

Driver CPC stands for the Certificate of Professional Competence. Periodic training is for those who are continuing their professional development for coach, bus and lorry drivers. The amount of training that is required for all drivers is 35 hours and the minimum requirement is 7 hours per training course. Every training course must be approved by JAUPT, the competent authority for the delivery of periodic training. The 7 hours does not include breaks or any administration time, those 7 hours must be training. CPC is to improve the knowledge of drivers. There are no exams involved in the training but for the trainer it is important to make sure those who have attended the course have benefited.
