Paper licences are to be scrapped for all drivers by 2015 as the government seeks to cut red tape, as well as encouraging more on-line transactions.

For hauliers however, September 2014 will be the effective date for changing over to photocard licences. This is because the Driver Qualification Card (DQC) needed to drive most trucks legally, will not be issued unless the applicant holds a photocard licence.

Insurance certificates are also on their way out as the government aims to move to a system for paying vehicle excise duty where the DVLA’s records will be matched on-line against the Motor Insurance Database (MID).

It is also planned that hard-copy V5C vehicle registration certificates for fleet operators will only be issued when needed, with the potential for this to be rolled out to private motorists.

On top of this the DfT is looking at bringing in a limited exemption from drivers’ hours rules so that those who also drive as Territorial Army reservists in their own time can continue to do so.

Drivers CPC - 1-Aug-2009

  • Customers are coming into our office and saying that from last September they can't drive C1 and bigger vehicles ( thats anything bigger than 3.5tonne Vans)., as they don't have driver's CPC
  • Drivers using the vehicle for personal use such as moving own house are exempt. Also any driver carrying materials or equipment for the use of the driver in the course of his work, providing that driving the vehicle is not the driver's principle activity. Also any fitter/mechanic road testing the vehicle.
  • The idea behind the Driver's CPC is a good one you need to do 35 hours training in a 5 year period. So new holders of the C or higher licence need to undertake training straight away. But if YOU ALREADY HOLD YOUR LICENCE you only need to undertake the Training by 10th Sept 2014.
  • This training, as I understand, needs to be any training associated with your particular driving Job. I understand from that that Boyce Transport Drivers can undertake Hi Ab training and that counts. So don't go for the first course you hear of ask the Driving Standard Agency.
  • We have copies of a relevant article in the office so please call in for one.
  • No Panic if existing C1 or higher licenceholder, and gradual training if new to the industry.
