DSA consults on Driver CPC arrangements

10.47 | 1 May 2009 |

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has launched a consultation proposing measures to improve the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) scheme, which affects professional bus, coach and lorry drivers.

Rosemary Thew, chief executive, said: “Driver CPC is an important scheme which is designed to improve road safety by ensuring that those who drive professionally have the best training available.  

"Our proposals aim to make the Driver CPC scheme more efficient by reducing the number of last minute test cancellations and clarifying the criteria for test vehicles. We are encouraging as many people as possible to share their views with us on the proposed plans so that we can make well informed decisions that will help to improve the scheme.”
