As World Health Day comes to a close, on behalf of our Members, Customers and all the Delegates who have attended courses with us, we at The CPC Link would like to express our thanks for the amazing dedication and bravery that everyone involved with the NHS continues to show in order to help others! THANK YOU.
April 7 of each year marks the celebration of World Health Day. From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration has aimed to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization, never more apt!
The Department for Transport has put in place temporary changes in professional driver qualification requirements
This means that drivers whose Driver CPC card expires in the period from 1 March 2020 to 30 September 2020 can continue driving.
In addition military drivers (who have different training) will be allowed to drive in civilian situations during that period.
Drivers will not be subject to enforcement action by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) in respect of the Driver CPC regulations. We have informed police forces of this position.
If you are stopped by an enforcement officer they can check to see that you have previously recently held a Driver CPC or are in the military (including reservists acting under instruction).
Drivers should carry their expired Driver CPC card if they have it.
The drivers that this measure applies to will be required to comply with Driver CPC rules from 1 October 2020.
Road transport operators will need to check insurance validity, but should not expect any significant change in premiums.
