DRIVER CPC DEADLINE REMINDER

For many professional lorry, bus or coach drivers in the UK the deadline to complete their driver CPC periodic training and maintain their current card is approaching.

If you haven’t already done so, you need to make sure you’ve completed 35 hours of periodic training by 9 September 2019.

Following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU professional drivers of lorries and buses will still need a valid CPC to continue to operate in the UK.

It is illegal for professional drivers to operate without a Driver Qualification Card (DQC).

Check how much training you’ve done
You can check how much training you’ve done and when you’ll get your next Driver CPC card using the online driver enquiry service. You can also give your employer temporary access to your training record.

You can find out more about Driver CPC training on GOV.UK.

If you miss your training deadline
You cannot drive professionally unless you hold a valid DQC and you could be fined up to £1,000 for driving professionally without a valid DQC.

Trailer registration
From 28 March 2019, all commercial trailers over 750kg must be registered to travel through some mainland European countries.

New Diabetes Test Will Not Apply to Professional Drivers.

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has announced new guidelines offering drivers who treat their diabetes with insulin have greater choice in how they test their glucose levels.

The update means drivers can now choose to use flash and continuous glucose monitoring devices to take glucose readings before they drive, or during breaks in driving.

Until now, they have had to check their glucose levels with a finger prick blood reading no more than two hours before driving and then again on a break after every two hours of driving.

However, the DVLA has confirmed that the new guidelines only apply to car and motorcycle drivers who treat their diabetes with insulin. The requirements for glucose testing for bus and lorry drivers remain the same (finger prick blood reading).

Drivers who treat their diabetes with insulin must tell DVLA although this does not apply to those who treat their diabetes by diet only. If in any doubt, they should speak to their GP or a medical professional involved in their treatment.
