The online driver enquiry service allows drivers to view how many hours of periodic training they have completed towards their Driver CPC (Driver Certificate of Professional Competence). Drivers can also give temporary passwords to prospective or current employers, allowing them to confirm how much training drivers have completed.

DSA’s chief executive, Rosemary Thew, said:

“Driver CPC has been developed to raise and maintain the knowledge and skills of lorry, bus and coach drivers.

“The new online driver enquiry service will allow professional drivers to check that their training has been uploaded and allow employers to see that this crucial training is taking place – helping the passenger transport and road haulage industries to maintain high professional standards.”

The service provides a ‘one stop shop’ to access clear, simple and up to date information. The enquiry screen shows:

  • Driver CPC qualification expiry date (bus and coach and/or lorry)
  • details of each training course completed

The online driver enquiry service can be accessed 24 hours-a-day via direct.gov.uk/checkdrivercpc.

For further information please visit Driver CPC: how to get and keep it on the Directgov website.
