Certificate of professional Competence
Requirement for all UK LGV HGV PCV Drivers

To work in the United Kingdom as an HGV, LGV or PCV Driver, you must hold a Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC).

The CPC was introduced in 2009 to ensure all working HGV, LGV or PCV drivers achieve and maintain high standards of professionalism.

The certificate is required in addition to the Class 1 or Class 2 Drivers licence.

What it means:

  • When you get your Class 1 or Class 2 Drivers licence you will also need your CPC before driving professionally..
  • Every 5 years you will need 35 hours of training to renew your CPC
