How much training you need to do
You must do 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years to keep your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) to drive a lorry, bus or coach.
You can be fined up to £1,000 for driving professionally without Driver CPC.
You can check how many hours of training you’ve done in the current 5-year period.
You only need to complete one set of training every 5 years if you drive both lorries and buses professionally.
There’s a different process if you live in Northern Ireland.
You have to do the training in the country where you work or normally live.
