What is the Driver CPC
The Driver CPC is for LGV and PCV drivers who drive professionally throughout the UK. It has been developed as a requirement of the EU Directive 2003/59, which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional LGV and PCV drivers throughout their working life. There are two parts to the legislation:
  • The Initial Qualification must be achieved by new LGV and PCV drivers along with their vocational licence to enable them to use their licence professionally. Click here to download an information leaflet
  • Periodic Training; 35 hours of training every 5 years must be attended by all professional drivers . Click here to download an information leaflet.
  • Remember the driver CPC is a driver requirement it is up to the driver to gain this training, without it you will not be able to drive professionally after the deadline.

Initial Driver CPC

To gain the initial driver CPC qualification for new drivers of PCV & LGV you must pass the following 4 modules.

  • Theory and hazard perception test (Module 1)

  • Case study Test (Module 2)

  • Practical driving test (Module 3)

  • Practical demonstration test (Module 4)

Module 1 – Multiple Choice and Hazard Perception.

Module 1 consists of two separate tests. The first is 100 multiple choice questions (of which the pass mark is 85) and the second 19 hazard perception clips with 20 score-able hazards (of which the pass mark is 67 out of 100).
The two tests take a total of 2 ½ hours to complete, but can be taken separately and in either order.

Module 2 – Case Studies

In addition to passing module 1, to obtain your Driver CPC you will also need to pass module 2. This module is a computer based test and uses case studies, each one based on real-life scenarios you may encounter in your working life. It aims to test your knowledge and how you put it into practice. Written by experts from the industry, questions are based around the case study and you will be asked to answer in a number of different ways such as multiple choice answers or clicking an area on a photograph / image. Each test is made up of seven case studies, each one with six to eight questions, with a possible maximum score of 50. The pass mark for the PCV test is 40 and the pass mark for the LGV test is 38. The test will take 1½ hours to complete and can be taken at the same test centre as module 1. Drivers who already hold a Driver CPC for one category of vehicle (i.e. PCV or LGV) and wish to obtain a Driver CPC for the other category, will need to take a Module 2 conversion test consisting of 10 case studies with a total of 50 questions. Modules 1, 3 and 4 will need to be completed in full.

Module 3 – Practical Test

The practical test is made up of two parts. The first is a reversing exercise and 5 safety questions, and is carried out at the test centre. The second takes place on public roads and may include driving on motorways. You will carry out exercises specific to the type of vehicle you drive. The practical test also includes an eco-safe driving assessment which involves the examiner taking note of how you control the vehicle and plan your driving. This assessment does not count towards the result of the test, however the examiner will give you feedback at the end of your test. The test takes 1½ hours, with at least an hour of driving.

Module 4 – Driver CPC Practical Test

In addition to passing module 3, to obtain your Driver CPC you will also need to pass module 4 a practical test focussing on vehicle safety which was developed with the support and advice of the industry. In this ½ hour test you will be required to demonstrate your knowledge and ability in the areas listed below:

• Ability to load the vehicle with due regard for safety rules and proper vehicle use
• Security of the vehicle and contents
• Ability to prevent criminality and trafficking in illegal immigrants
• Ability to assess emergency situations
• Ability to prevent physical risk
• Demonstrate your ability through a physical, walk round vehicle safety check

The test consists of 5 topic areas which cover the Driver CPC syllabus and in order to pass the candidate has to score 15 out of a possible 20 points in each topic area (75%) and an overall score of 80%.

Can I take the modules in any order?

You must pass module 1 before you take module 3 and you must pass module 2 before you take module 4.

How will I prove I hold Driver CPC?

After you have passed all 4 modules you will be sent a Driver Qualification Card (DQC). You must carry your DQC whilst driving and there will be penalties if you are
found to be driving professionally without one.

Once I have passed my initial qualification, is that it?

No. A Driver CPC lasts for five years. To retain your Driver CPC you will need to complete 35 hours of periodic training every five years to continue to drive professionally.

Where can I get trained?

Only approved courses taken with approved training centres will count towards periodic training. Each course is seven hours long, so five courses need to be attended before the deadlines.

Is there a test to pass?

No. There is no requirement for a course to include a test or a pass/fail element. Qualification is by attendance. However, most client’s are asking delegates to complete a simple multiple choice questionnaire at the end of the course


Attendance & Registration

Candidates must arrive 15 Min before the course start time to complete registration and attend the full seven hours of training to qualify for having their seven hours attendance uploaded to the DSA register. Drivers failing to attend the full seven hours will not have their details registered with the DSA so even their partial attendance will not count. Late arrivals or early leavers will not be registered as having attended.

Drivers completing seven hours training will have their details uploaded to the DSA register.

Once a driver has completed 35 hours of training, the DSA will issue a Driver Qualification Card (DQC) which is sent to the driver’s home address.

Driver licences

Please note that on the day of the course we will need proof of ID for every driver. This can be a photo card licence plus the paper counterpart. Or it can be an old style paper licence plus a current passport. No other forms of ID are acceptable. If we are not able to verify identity by seeing either of these forms of ID on the day we will not be able to upload the 7 hours accreditation onto the DSA database.
