Periodic training

All drivers need to complete 35 hours of periodic training (classroom based) every five years on an ongoing basis to keep driving for a living. 

Periodic training is delivered through courses that drivers attend over the five-year period for which their current Driver CPC is valid. 

The 35 hours are broken down in to five separate days each day is 7 hours long. There is no pass or fail element to these tests.

Each new five-year period will begin from the expiry date of the driver's current Driver CPC qualification, and not from the date on which they reached the 35 hours minimum training requirement.

Drivers of PCV vehicles prior to 10 September 2008 had to complete their first block of 35 hours of training and have their DQC issued by 9 September 2013. The deadline to complete their second block of training is 9 September 2018.

Drivers of LGV vehicles prior to 10 September 2009 had to complete 35 hours of training and have their DQC issued by 9 September 2014. The deadline to complete their second block of training is 9 September 2019.

Drivers of both PCV and LGV vehicles only need to do one set of periodic training every 5 years.
