IAM chief executive Simon Best said: “We welcome the changes to reduce motorists’ red tape. The improvements made to Statutory off Road Notification (SORN) mean the end of receiving fines for not telling the DVLA something they already know.

But we would urge the department to carefully consider how any changes would impact on road safety, particularly the suggested proposals for removing driver CPC (Certificate for Professional Competence) for some sectors. We suggest that the department clarifies which drivers still require the driver CPC at the earliest opportunity and encourage those drivers who do need to do periodic training to get started.”
