Certificate of Professional Competence & CPC licence
One of our most requested services is to provide help, support and guidance for people looking to complete and obtain a Certificate of Professional Competence or a ‘CPC licence’ as it is known in the industry.
What is a Certificate of Professional Competence?
The Certificate of Professional Competence was introduced back in 2008 and is a mandatory qualification for all professional Bus, Coach and Lorry Drivers. The CPC licence has now been introduced and rolled-out across Europe with the number one goal of improving road safety.
What does the Certificate of Professional Competence consist of?
The primary objective of the CPC licence is to improve road safety by educating and helping Bus Drivers, Coach Drivers and Lorry Drivers to develop their professional skills and knowledge of personal safety and road safety.
The CPC licence course takes place over a period of 35 hours (this is the minimum amount of time, it can often take longer to complete depending on the driver) and consists of regular training and test based situations.
