Who Needs A Drivers CPC Certificate

Iíve been a professional driver for almost twenty five years and all of a sudden, the government has decided that I need to take additional driving courses every five years in order to show Iím competent. Surely spending over twenty years on the road without being involved in a single accident shows that Iím a competent driver? Iíd like to think so but the current government has a better idea, and it's called the Drivers Certificate of Professional Competence or CPC for short. Now all professional drivers such as myself have to undertake thirty five hourís worth of CPC courses every five years in order to keep our jobs!

Personally, Iím disgusted with this as my clean licence should be all I need to keep my job. I make all my deliveries on time and get back to the depot quicker than many of the other drivers, and no amount of CPC training courses is going to make me better at my job. Whilst other drivers are busy worrying about fuel economy to save a little fuel and simultaneously slowing the job down, Iím there with my foot to the floor getting the job done, day-in day-out. And if all the other idiots on the road knew how to drive properly they would be in my way, and Iím the one who's expected to go back-to-school. It's an insult. It's more than an insult. And to add insult to injury Iím expected to pay for the privilege. It's nothing more than a money making scheme for the DSA and JAUPT!

Obviously Iíve complained to my boss about it because he's going to have to get other drivers in to cover those attending the CPC courses. He said it might make a better driver out of me, but I couldn't be a better driver if I tried. He said I might learn to drive more economically, save fuel, cut down on wear & tear on my wagon and be a safer driver. I told him Iíd only had a few scrapes, which is normal for somebody who spends all day on the road, and added that those 'howís my driving' stickers do more harm than good because people report anything and everything just because they can. My boss went on to say that CPC training courses were designed for people like me; those who constantly blame every other road user but themselves. He added that he'd already booked me into my CPC UK course next week as he sees me as a priority case. I guess he wants me back on the road as soon as possible, being one of his best drivers.
