Driver CPC for C1 - upto 7.5t licence
Not sure if people are aware of this, but the legal requirement for LGV drivers to hold a Drivers' CPC qualification / card which came onto force on 10 Sept also applies to anyone with a pre-1996 C1 licence permitting them to drive upto 7.5 tonnes on their "normal" (i.e. non-LGV) licence if they are driving a vehicle above 3.5t professionally (in the course of their work).
This may affect people who only though the Driver CPC applied to "LGV"s above 7.5t - i.e. where you had to take the LGV/HGV test.
For example I have a C1 licence from 1983 (although I have allowed my LGV C+E licence to lapse) so I can drive a 7.5t, but to do so for work legally I would have to hold a driver CPC even though I don't have an LGV licence any longer.
This may affect some over 35 who qualified to drive before 1996 and might drive 3.5-7.5t on their normal licence.
