CPC and Brexit - update your certificates

When Brexit finally goes ahead, you will need to update your CPC if you drive in the EU.  Whilst the UK will still recognise EU CPCs, the EU will not recognise UK CPC if there is a no deal Brexit if:

  • UK drivers working for UK companies from 1 January 2020
  • UK drivers working for EU companies from 31 October 2019

It might be worth thinking about changing your UK CPC for a EU CPC if you work for an EU company, before Brexit happens on the 31st October.  If you need some help, the .GOV have some great guide for lorry/goods vehicle drivers and bus/coach drivers.

If you run a company that works in Europe and the UK, check out the guidelines available for what you need to do because of Brexit on the .Gov website: International Road Haulage after Brexit.
