Vehicle Drivers (Certificates of Professional Competence) (Amendment) Regulations 2010 come into force
Implementation date: 21 April 2010
The Regulations amend the Vehicle Drivers (Certificates of Professional Competence) Regulations 2007 (SI 2007/605) in respect of arrangements for drivers of certain goods and passenger vehicles seeking to obtain a certificate of professional competence. The Regulations permit those who provide training for the initial test of bus and lorry drivers to apply for the test appointment, prescribe further circumstances in which examiners must refuse to carry out the test and the circumstances in which fees paid for a test may be repaid, and require a bus or lorry driver to have passed the theoretical test before applying to take the practical test. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
