DCPC set for Review

27th March 2013

full review of the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (DCPC) is set to be annouced shortly by the European Commission (EC) and is expected to happen in the next two weeks and take 14 weeks to complete.


The review will cover three main areas:-

Address all the difficulties encountered

Update the legislation to take account of technical progress

Explore possible avenues for the evolution of the legislation

Following the review, if there are any changes felt necessary, the EC could table possible legislative proposals in late 2014 or early 2015. Please note that there will be no alteration to the current timetable for completion of the 35 hours of DCPC training.
