Driver CPC Information

What is Driver CPC?

 CPC training Kildare

 

 

Driver CPC is a Certificate in Professional Competence for professional bus and truck drivers. Its purpose is to set and maintain high standards of safety and driving among drivers of trucks and buses.CPC training in Kildare

Driver CPC was introduced in Ireland on the 10th September 2008 for bus drivers, and the 10th September 2009 for truck drivers. From these dates on, professional drivers will need to take part in continuous training.

 

How does Driver CPC affect drivers holding full C/D licence C/Dís before 10th Sept?

If you have a full licence for a truck or bus before Driver CPC came into force on the 10th September 2008 for buses and the 10th September 2009 for trucks, you will automatically get your Driver CPC without having to take more tests. This is called having CPC acquired rights

CPC training course Kildare

In order to keep your Driver CPC acquired rights, you must do 35 hours of periodic training (seven hours per year) over five consetutive years from 2008 for buses and 2009 for trucks. When you complete all of your periodic training you will get a card recording your Driver CPC, photograph and signature. If you are not up to date with your periodic training you cannot work as a professional driver. Any driver who has acquired rights and has not completed Driver CPC and wishes to start to work as a professional driver will need to complete all of the CPC Modules before starting employment.

Please see our Courses section below to book or call us on 045-879969

 

How does driver CPC affect new drivers?


If you want to become a professional bus driver or a professional truck driver you will have to do Driver CPC examinations. The examination includes:

•    The Driver Theory test which now includes the multiple choice CPC test, (€72 apply on www.theorytest.ie)
•    A two hour case study theory test, (€72 apply on www.theorytest.ie)
•    A 90 minute driving test, and (€120 apply on www.rsa.ie)
•    A 30 minute practical test. (€32 apply on www.rsa.ie) (Covering the candidate’s knowledge of safety, a practical demonstration of the candidate’s knowledge of the vehicle and its components and their knowledge of documentation required to drive professionally.)

Should you fail any part of the test you will need to re-sit it before continuing.


Once you have completed and passed the Driver CPC exams you can apply for a driving licence and Driver CPC card in that category. You will then have to do 35 hours of periodic training (seven hours per year) over the next five years to keep your Driver CPC, which runs continuously in five year cycles.
