The Driver CPC
Professional drivers fall into two categories from a Driver CPC perspective:

  1. Those who were already working as professional drivers when the scheme was put in place.
  2. Those who are new to the profession.

What is Driver CPC ?
Driver CPC was introduced across the EU in 2008 for professional bus drivers and 2009 for professional truck drivers to set and maintain high standards of road safety, health and safety and driving among professional drivers of buses and trucks.

Three key aims:

  • Ensuring all professional drivers have good driving and safety standards and that those standards are maintained throughout their career.
  • Creating a common standard for the training and testing of drivers throughout the EU.
  • Reducing fatalities and serious injuries on Irish roads. The RSA’s target is for Ireland to have one of the lowest casualty rates in Europe.

‘Acquired rights’ to Driver CPC
If you got your bus licence on or before the 9 September 2008, or your truck licence on or before 9 September 2009, you are automatically entitled to Driver CPC. This is called “acquired rights”.

To keep your Driver CPC, you must do 35 hours of periodic training over the next five years.
Training is on a one-day-per-year basis.

Periodic training is compulsory and will help you be:

  • A better and safer driver
  • More environmentally aware and cost conscious
  • Physically healthier

Training is provided in RSA-approved training centres by approved trainer providers.
(Advance Drive is an Approved Training Centre. Phone 087 2286252 to book your course today!)

‘New to the driving profession’
If you do your bus test on or after 10 September 2008 or your truck test on or after 10 September 2009 you don’t qualify for acquired rights.
To become a professional bus or truck driver you must pass:
Two-hour multiple choice theory test
Two-hour case study theory test
90-minute driving test
30-minute practical test.
In addition, to maintain your Driver CPC, you must complete 35 hours of periodic training for five years following qualification (one day per year)

Theory tests
The new Driver CPC theory tests are part of the new Driver CPC process, which is mandatory for all new professional drivers.

Step 1: Drivers must first pass the learner permit theory test and obtain their learner permit as normal.
Step 2: Drivers then must take pass theory tests.
Test 1 – 100 multiple choice question (61 correct answers needed to pass)
Test 2 – 3 case studies are short scenarios that describe various situations a driver might face. There are 15 questions in each case study (45 in total). To pass, you must correctly answer 28 of the 45 quesitons – a minimum of 5 questions on each case study.
Each stage takes two hours and it’s possible to take both tests on the same day. Prometric Ireland, which runs the learner permit theory test, also carries out the Driver CPC theory tests. They costs €70 each.

The CPC practical test
This test is conducted in the driving test centre and is usually taken directly after the driving test. A vehicle is required for this session. It is a practical knowledge test lasting 30 minutes. It covers areas such as
safety
passenger comfort
legal matters relating to driving
vehicle loading and stability
ability to deal with an emergency
physical risks involved in driving

Booking a test
Driver CPC theory test: Lo-call: 1890 60 61 06 or go to www.theorytest.ie. Driver CPC driving and practical test: Lo-call: 1890 50 60 80 or go the RSA’s online booking facility. If you wish, you can attend training in RSA-approved training centres to help you prepare for your Driver CPC examination.
Proof of certification
Drivers with acquired rights:
Your licence will have an issue date before the September deadlines in the relevant category as proof of your acquired rights. When you complete your periodic training, you will be issued with a Driver CPC qualification card.

New drivers:
When you have passed the two Driver CPC theory tests, the driving test and practical test you will be issued with a Driver CPC qualification card.

Exemptions:

Driver CPC certification is not required for drivers of vehicles used:

  • For non-commercial purposes, eg driving as a volunteer;
  • Drivers of emergency or rescue vehicles
  • For a registered RSA approved Driving Instructors who are giving driving instruction
  • In the course of someone’s work, provided that driving the vehicle is not the driver’s principal occupation, eg, a plumber using a light truck to transport their materials.
  • Vehicles with a maximum speed not exceeding 45 km/h

    Hi All, I just want to thank Dezzie and all the team at Advance Drive for helping me pass my Class B driving test last Monday in Westside Galway. Overall, I did 17 lessons with Dezzie in the Ford Fiesta and I found him to be extremely friendly, professional and knowledgeable at all times, and I can definitely say that he has the patience of a saint. As such, I can't recommend Advance Drive enough and I know that I would not have passed my driving test first time round without Dezzie's expert help. Thanks a million Dezzie.

    April 30, 2014keith mannion

    I went to Advanced drive after they were recommended by a friend. I have now passed 2 tests with them (bus and truck) and can't praise them enough. Phillip and Mike are both very patient and encouraging during the learning process. During each pre-test lesson they re-assured me and gave me ways to deal with the test nerves. This patience,professionality and excellent prices, added to their felxibility in scheduling lessons make them my first choice for any more tests. well done lads
    April 28, 2014Stephen Hand

    Philip is an absolute genius when it comes to driving and answering questions you ask there is absolutely nothing he doesn\'t know, done 3 tests in a year rigid, coach and artic yesterday 1st oct with nearly a clean sheet only 1 fault due to another very unprofessional bus driver. how good is that for a result driving a truck with a 35ft trailor thanks to the expert tuition from Philip. impossible to fail. why go to an apprentice when you can learn from a professional cheers philip

    April 30, 2014M.V.Walsh

    I did my D licence with Advance Drive before Christmas. Dessie was my instructor and I found him to be very experienced, patient and professional. Dessie subtly gets the point across of the mistakes that you are making without making you feel bad about it. He recommended that I do 2 extra lessons, the benefit of which was very noticeable and I may not have passed first time without them. Many thanks to Dessie and all at Advance Drive.

    (17/04/14) Looked at a number of other driving schools before choosing Advance Drive. I'm glad I went with my 'gut instinct' & chose this one. Philip did a great job of teaching me. I felt relaxed with him & learnt something at every lesson. He's patient, very astute (misses nothing!) a good communicator and great instructor. Managed to pass my driving test first time. I'm 'over the moon!' I would certainly recommend Advance Drive to anyone in the process of choosing a driving school. Thanks to Philip, Ailbhe & all at Advance Drive.

    Massive thanks to Advance Drive for getting me through the C1. Very helpful in getting me out of my bad habits that I'd picked up since doing the B. Was also a lovely small truck for learning. Will be back for the D1, thanks again.

    I am delighted that I passed my category D1 mini-bus test today (09/02/16). I can't praise Dezzie in Advance Drive enough for his excellent tutoring. He had me thoroughly prepared & fully ready for my test. He put me at ease & gave me confidence. Thanks Dezzie. I also passed my BE jeep & trailer test & my Category C rigid test in the last few years after receiving lessons from Advance Drive. I would highly recommend Advance Drive to those looking for driving lessons in any vehicle category.

    Past my jeep and trailer test at the first attempt. Dezzie was my instructor and was very knowledgeable and a great support. Also Ailbhe in the office was extremely pleasent, efficient and gave good detail of all lessons to take place. This is an excellent driving school with customer service and success a top priority. Thanks for all the help and support. Gearoid.

    Found Advance Driving School to be very helpful and informative when making inquiries about getting a new category added to licence. I had a couple of truck driving lessons with Dessie and passed first time. Found Dessie to be very informative about all aspects of rules of the road as some of these had to be refreshed for me. Also found him to be very relaxed during lessons. Would definitely recommend for future lessons. Thank you.
