The European Professional Drivers Association has a clear mission statement.
“To promote and support a professional driving culture.”
To achieve this aim the EPDA engages with all stakeholders to ensure that the objective it delivered and supported.
It is up to every individual to choose how they conduct themselves in relation to their position in work. The EPDA sets standards for professional drivers. It is for each individual driver to choose to be a commercial vehicle driver or choose to be a professional driver.
Assisting stakeholders understand the actual diversity and complexity of the role of today’s professional driver will benefit all of those involved in the transport industry. The importance of education and recognition for achievement can not be overstated. The EPDA places education as a key component in the development of the professional driver. Experience and competence in the role of the professional driver make a major contribution to operational efficiencies, cost-effective operation, a reduction in Co2 emissions and a safer road network.

What must happen now?
There is No Shortage of Professional HGV Drivers.
There is an absence of a professional road transport culture and a lack of understanding of what the role of today’s HGV driver is. There is a miss understanding that Haulage Associations represent the interests of professional drivers, their primary focus is on representing the interests of business operators. There is a misunderstanding that Government Road safety Enforcement Agencies only exist to impede business and to collect taxes.
