      Well I have a HGV licence which I just renewed for ten years and I don't have or have never done a CPC module or course. Bear in mind I am not in the UK but When I asked the Irish equivalent of the DVLA they said that if I made my living from professional truck /bus driving then I needed to do it but as I earn my living from construction and civils and only drive occasionally then I don't.....................

        if you do not have one it will pretty much limit what you can do

        7. When you donít need Driver CPC

        You might not need Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC), even if youíre driving a large goods vehicle or passenger carrying vehicle. It depends on:
        • the vehicle
        • what the vehicle is being used for

        Vehicles you can drive without Driver CPC

        You donít need Driver CPC if the vehicle you drive is:
        • being road tested after repair, maintenance or technical development
        • new or rebuilt and not been put into service yet
        • limited to a top speed of 28mph

        Vehicle uses where you donít need Driver CPC

        You donít need Driver CPC if the vehicle you drive is:
        • used for non-commercial carriage of passengers or goods for personal use
        • used to carry material or equipment you use for your job - but driving the vehicle canít be the main part of your job
        • used for driving lessons for anyone who wants to get a driving licence or a Driver CPC
        • used by, or is under the control of, the armed forces, civil defence, the fire service and forces responsible for maintaining public order
        • used in states of emergency or for rescue missions

          Is the point .. and its not an Irish only interpretation its pan European You might be right ? ..what would be the limiting factors ? .. an hour each way in the truck but driving the digger all day is ok ?

          Ofcourse you realise that you've then been caught by tacho rules which state 'other work' is counted as driving time ?
