Mirian Mendes Training, CPC, Driving and Industrial...

The CPC, or 'Certificate of Professional Competence' is a legal requirement for all new drivers that seek to obtain their first Category C or Category D licence.  Along with the CPC, training consists of preparation for the appropriate theory test and the practical skills needed to pass the driver's final two exams. This entire process combined is known as the CPC qualification.

The government recommends all professional lorry, bus, and coach drivers assume they must have the CPC certification in order to drive legally.
