Scrap Drivers Certificate Professional Competence (DCPC) to ease driver shortage
Government and the Department for transport need to remove the requirement for a driver to hold a DCPC also known as drivers certificate of professional competence, this has been required since 2009.
The RHA and FTA I’ve been asking the government to help the haulage industry with the driver shortage, scrapping the CPC requirement will enable LGV license holders to return to driving who currently cannot do so due to not having a DCPC, The scheme never fulfilled the promises made when it was introduced and has exacerbated the driver shortage to the point that the economy will suffer, it’s time now to rethink this poorly thought out legislation that caused a large exodus of drivers.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
