DVSA driver warning for 7.5T

DVSA warns Drivers they can’t drive a 7.5T vehicle

even if they have the entitlement on their licence,

without a Driver CPC

The DVSA has recently warned drivers that they can’t legally drive a 7.5T vehicle professionally, even if the entitlement is showing on their driving licence, unless they have completed the Driver CPC.
Drivers issued with a car licence before 1996 automatically have a C1 entitlement on their licence.  This allows them to drive a vehicle up to 7.5T professionally.  However, since the introduction of the Driver CPC this month, the entitlement no longer exists unless a driver has completed the Driver CPC training (or is exempt for some reason).
