The NPRA issues the CPC by adding the national code 160 on your driving licence. In order to be granted a CPC for emergency vehicles, you must have completed a compulsory emergency driving course and passed a theoretical and practical driving test. The CPC has an administrative validity of five years.

The requirement for CPCs, goals for the training and rules relating to tests, etc., can be found in the Emergency Driving Regulations.

In addition to new Emergency Driving Regulations, a new curriculum has been prepared for the training required to qualify for a CPC. It is available as an appendix at the bottom of the page (in Norwegian text only).
