Truck driver training leading to driver shortage in the United Kingdom (UK) 2013

This 2013 survey shows how commercial vehicle fleet companies perceived the legally required Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) training for their drivers and whether they thought it would cause a driver shortage in the United Kingdom. Regardless of the respondents' fleet size, over 50 percent of those surveyed said they agreed with the statement above, fearing a shortage of drivers because of the obligatory CPC training. About a fifth of the respondents said they disagreed with that notion.

To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following statement: ''Driver CPC** will lead to a driver shortage''?

Supplementary notes

*50% of the sample companies have 5-25 vehicles in the fleet; 25% of the sample have 26-50 vehicles and 25% of the sample have more than 51 vehicles. While this does not follow the pattern of licence holders in the UK precisely, it does reflect the disproportionate buying power of the larger fleets.

** The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) is a special tuition training (35 hours overall) for professional drivers resulting in a driver qualification card without which a driver is not allowed to handle a truck professionally.
