What will happen once I gain my Drivers CPC?

There are exemptions from the Driver CPC qualification, these are as follows:

  • Used for the non-commercial carriage of passengers or goods, for personal use
  • Undergoing road tests for technical development, repair or maintenance purposes, or new or rebuilt vehicles not yet put into service
  • Used in the course of driving lessons for any person wishing to obtain a driving licence or Driver CPC
  • Carrying material or equipment to be used by the driver in the course of his or her work, provided that driving the vehicle does not constitute the drivers principal activity
  • With a maximum authorised speed not exceeding 45km/h
  • Used by, or under the control of, the armed forces, civil defence, the fire service, and forces responsible for maintaining public order
  • Used in states of emergency or assigned to rescue missions

Ultimately, it is up to the driver and their employer to decide if they are covered by these exemptions, and if necessary, justify it to the competent authority. Therefore JAUPT would strongly advise that if a driver believes they are exempt from the Driver CPC that they should seek independent legal advice.
