Driver CPC rules relaxed during COVID-19 outbreak

Apr 01 | 2020

The Department for Transport has announced that it has put in place temporary changes to the Driver CPC requirements during the COVID-19 outbreak. The changes apply only to Great Britain. Arrangements in Northern Ireland are devolved.

The changes mean that drivers whose Driver CPC card expires in the period from 1 March, 2020 to 30 September, 2020 may continue driving.

In addition, military drivers (who have different training) will be allowed to drive in civilian situations during that period.

Drivers will not be subject to enforcement action by the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) in respect of the Driver CPC regulations and police forces have been informed of this position.

Drivers should carry their expired Driver CPC card if they have it.
