Driver CPC and Brexit, Part 2
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has released guidance on Driver CPC requirements post Brexit. A Driver CPC will still be required to drive professionally in the UK after Brexit – including if we leave in a no-deal scenario.
The UK will still recognise Driver CPC qualifications from EU countries after Brexit, but, if there is a no-deal Brexit, the EU will NOT recognise UK Driver CPC qualifications for:
- UK drivers working for UK companies from 1 January 2020.
- UK drivers working for EU companies from 31 October 2019.
If you work for an EU company or want to work for one, consider exchanging your UK Driver CPC for an EU Driver CPC before 31 October 2019, as this will ensure you can still work for EU and UK companies if there is a no-deal Brexit.
