  • New Driver CPC Regs

    Just incase anyone out there hasnt come across the lastest red tape from Brussels. If you drive a PSV or LGV you will be required to posses a CPC from September 2014 in order to keep on driving .


    http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Motoring...cles/DG_171186

    It will need to be re-done with 35 hours of classroom time every 5 years. The rule came in last year, but under grandfather rights, existing drivers have until 2014 to comply. There is no test to pass for existing drivers, just the time must be completed

    Happy days

    I for one think this is a load of b@ll@cks I have had a class 1 for well over 20 years got my national CPC (needed to be a transport manager) oh and it cost 2000:angry: but still need to sit in a classroom for 35 hrs just to be told something I probably already know and have to pay for the privilege :angry: by someone who probably knows less about transport than my 14 year old son

    If I have to explain you wouldn't understand

      For years ... the CITB milked the system and a 'jobs for the boys' culture existed and created a new layer of beurocracy that had to be funded from whitehall, and then subsequently 'The Levy'


      This is direct rule from the EU and will cost every driver and their employer Millions .. to remind them of something they should already know


      If you dont already comply with the law .. you get FINED .. so why overlay this additional beurocracy ? .. I say again if you are not a good driver you will get caught, because VOSA has stepped up inspections left right and centre to make sure of compliance, and ignorance of the law is no defence

      The next question has to be where will this end ? how much red tape is going to be introduced to stop people earning a living ?... I get bloody mad at all this stuff, it really makes my blood boil

        Drivers cpc that old chestnut............well you only require a cpc if you make your living from driving a truck bus or coach, now if you own a digger but move it by truck then you are exempt if you drive a bus on a voluntary basis you are exempt. Put a load of muck on a truck then if you are driving it you need a CPC.
        Now don't be fooled driver CPC will be an on going process with a day a year required in the class room...............

                  I Like the exemtion thats says if you drive a vehicle used for giving driving lessons you don't need one ????So a trainer does not need one to teach.

                            Aye fella it is crap ... theres too much box ticking these days, and not enough knowing what you are about.. It dumbs down the truly skilled amongst us but what can we do ?

                            I think if this bollocks keeps up, you'll need a ticket to wipe your own arse before ye know it
