BIG news regarding Lorry Driver CPC - Call me or email for the ins and outs of this, but in a nutshell there have been Government consultations and  if you don't drive full time (harvest drivers are still a question as it can be full time but not all year) and drive as part of your agricultural business but not as a full time driver, then you should soon be exempt from having at accrue driver cpc points.

This is a great benefit for the farming community and its about time something positive has been done! There are some caveats in the exemptions which I have attached as our news link so you can see in more details, but please just ask rather than assuming anything and I can run though any particular work scenarios you have with you to make sure you make the right decision.

If you are a full time lorry driver eg a contractor or spend all your time driving , even if its for agriculture, then you will probably still need lorry driver cpc. There are exemptions for part time drivers less than a certain % of your monthly time spent driving.
