There's only one month to go for many professional bus and coach drivers to complete their 35 hours of periodic training, if their current Driver Qualification Card (DQC) expires on 9 September 2019 and as you all know , it is illegal for professional drivers to operate without a valid DQC. We have a number of courses running and if you still need to complete training, please contact Beverley asap.
Following Brexit, professional drivers will still need a valid DQC to drive professionally in the UK, although their qualification will no longer be recognised within the EU.
Drivers can be fined up to £1,000 for driving professionally without a valid DQC. Operators also need to make sure their drivers hold a DQC
