Driver CPC exemptions consultation
A consultation has been launched by the DSA concerning two proposals to widen the scope of Driver CPC exemptions. The first one would exempt vehicles attending a VOSA test centre, including VOSA authorised testing facilities (ATF). The second would exempt drivers of a vehicle that is being driven with the permission of the vehicle operator or lessor and where the following four extra conditions are met: within 50km of the driver’s base, no passengers are carried, the vehicle is not being used for hire or reward and driving such vehicles is not the driver’s main activity. Responses to the consultation must be made by 28 June 2013. Visit www.gov.uk/government/consultations/driver-cpc-changes-to-the-scope-of-exemptions for the response form.
