European Commission to review Driver CPC rules

“Adjustments” may be made to the current Driver CPC requirements, according to the European Commission, which has confirmed a review of the rules on training and qualifications of professional drivers will take place.  

The review will focus on three areas identified in an evaluation of the implementation of the Driver CPC completed in October last year. This is expected to lead to the adoption of a new Commission proposal by the end of 2016.

Concerns identified in the initial evaluation highlighted a requirement for greater legal clarity over Driver CPC exemptions and the discrepancy between the Driver CPC directive and driver licensing directive in terms of the minimum age of new drivers.
