Background To The DCPC 
EU Directive 2003/59 required all new drivers to acquire the DCPC for the vocational driving of category D and D1 (PCV) from the 10th September 2008 and category C and C1 (LGV) from the 10th September 2009.

Who Needs A DCPC
Holders of vocational licenses prior to 10th September 2008/9 were granted Grandfather Rights and did not have to acquire the DCPC. They did, however, have to undertake 35 hours of Periodic Training, to have been completed within a 5 year period from 10th September 2008/9.

Trainers To Deliver The DCPC
It is estimated the DCPC has impacted on almost 1,000,000 professional drivers and that 3,000,000 training hours are required annually for LGV drivers alone.
