CPC Taught by Experienced Drivers - Ph: 086 844 2686
Dublin CPC is approved by the Road Safety Authority to carry out Driver CPC training throughout Ireland. Driver CPC was introduced across the EU from 10th September 2008 for professional bus drivers and 10th September 2009 for professional truck drivers. Its purpose is to set and maintain high standards of road safety, health and safety and driving among professional drivers of buses and trucks.
If you have your bus licence on or before the 9th September 2008, or your truck licence on or before 9th September 2009, you are automatically entitled to Driver CPC. This is called acquired rights. In order to keep your Driver CPC, you must do 35 hours of periodic training over five years. Training is on a one day per year basis.
Under law, the Garda Siochana and RSA Transport Officers have the authority to enforce Driver CPC.
