Don't panic everyone, just wanted you all to see the new law on driving vehicles between 3,5t and 7.5t Professionally, ie carrying a load and getting paid to do it, and as motorhomes do not carrying a load except private stuff and the driver does not get paid for driving mh then this ruling does not cover motorhome drivers. Regards Garry Flatpackchicken DVSA has reminded drivers that they now can’t legally drive a 7.5 tonne truck professionally even if it’s on their driving licence unless they have completed the Driver CPC. Drivers issued with their car licence before 1996 have a C1 entitlement on their licence allowing them to drive professionally a vehicle up to 7.5 tonnes. However, with the passing of the Driver CPC deadline earlier this month, the entitlement no longer stands unless the individual completed the mandatory 35 hours of Driver CPC training. A DVSA spokesman confirmed to CM that “although a person’s C1 entitlement remains on their licence, if they didn’t have a CPC they would not be able to drive the vehicle professionally (unless covered by one of the exemptions)”. Exemptions include taking a vehicle for test, or one in use by the emergency services or army. The reminder comes after a warning from DVLA that professional drivers must carry their Driver Qualification Cards on them at all times.
