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

    (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.
    April 28, 2014Allison Barry

    Past my jeep and trailer test at the first attempt. Dezzie was my instructor and was very knowledgeable and a great support.

Thanks for all the help and support. Gearoid.

    I don't see any negative testimonials on the web page which confirms my view of this company. Knowledgeable, capable, friendly and patient to name a few of all the positive teaching attributes my instructor had. The company was recommended to me and I will have no hesitation in recommending them. Passed EB licence test in Galway.
    April 30, 2014Paul Connery

    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.

    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, 2014Brendan Kelly

    After failing the test twice, I changed companies. I passed today with a clean sheet after lessons with Dezzie. He quickly helped me get rid of any bad habits and made sure I was confident myself before doing the test. I would recommend Dezzie to anyone who is applying for their test.

    I just want to say thanks to Philip for the lorry lessons and most importantly for his calming nature on the morning of my test. I would never have passed first time without your help. Looking forward to round two for the horsebox!! Many Thanks Aine

    Michael and Philip are a super team. You get experience mixed with youth and all angles covered. They were always on time for lessons and know the routes involved in the test in great detail. I passed my bus test thanks to their support and encouragement. Strongly recommend them.

    I passed the C1 test first time thanks to advance drive. Philip has a remarkable knowledge of all things related to the driving test and he did everything in his power to help me pass first time.

    Massive thanks to the team at Advance Drive for their fantastic instruction and professional advice with helping me pass my Jeep & Trailer test first time. Philip was a fantastic instructor with great patience. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    I would recommend advance learning to anyone, I would especially be recommending Dezzie as an instructer as i passed first time with only getting three lessons. He was a fantastic instructor with a very calm and relaxed way of teaching. He made it easy to remember things and i flew threw my test.

    I would highly recommend Advance Drive to anyone wishing to do their driving test. I passed my C test in order to drive my horse lorry first time (in the pouring rain!). Teaching is comprehensive and prepares you to the last for the test, many thanks Philip. Very well organised service with SMS reminders of appointments and clear communication on all aspects of learning.
