What is Driver CPC?

 

Under new EU rules, all LGV & PCV Drivers will need to hold a Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) in addition to their Driving Licence.

 

New Drivers will need to take a test to receive their initial CPC and it must be renewed every 5 years by attending compulsory 35 hours classroom training.

 

Holders of Vocational Licences who passed Bus/Coach licence before 10th September 2008, or Lorry Drivers before 10th September 2009 have been given 5 years to gain their CPC and will need to complete their 35 Hours Training by the deadline and renew their Driver Qualification Card (DQC).

Initial Qualification

 

All new LGV or PCV Drivers must take and pass their Driver CPC Initial Test in order to utilise their licence for hire or reward.

 

The test consists of two parts, The Case Study & Practical Demonstration Test.

 

The Case Study Test is taken at a DSA Theory Test Centre and consists of multiple choice questions following a case study.

 

The Demonstration Test is conducted by a DSA examiner and consists of a series of questions he will ask in relation to the vehicle, its load, safety etc

 

On successful completion of this module you will be issued with a Driver Qualification Card as proof of your qualification.
