    Driver CPC - important note

    New drivers will receive their Driver Qualification Card once they pass their test

    NOTE: Following changes to the law in 2013, to be a bus driver you need a valid driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) in addition to a current PCV Licence. Obtaining a CPC involves up to 35 hours approved training. If you have been out of the industry some time, but still hold your PCV Licence, we can assist you in obtaining your CPC.
