Under this legislation it is compulsory for all professional drivers to participate in periodic training. In addition to the relevant category of driving licence, the driver’s CPC is also a legal requirement. The completion of the driver’s CPC is mandatory for all professional drivers of Large Public Service Vehicles (i.e. over 8 passenger seats) and drivers of Goods Vehicles, the weight of which exceeds 3,500 kilograms, in order to hold their entitlement to drive professionally.
The introduction of the driver’s CPC facilitates the free movement of qualified drivers who wish to seek employment in other E. U. Member States as a professional driver.
