Starting Your Career with Initial Driver CPC – Vital for New Professional Truck, Lorry, Coach, and Bus Drivers

The Initial Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) is essential for those entering the professional driving industry, particularly for trucks, lorries, coaches, and buses. Comprising four modules, this certification aims to evaluate and confirm that new drivers in these categories have the required knowledge, skills, and understanding of road driving standards and safety rules.

Module 1: Theory Test

Module 1 of the CPC, you’ll answer multiple-choice questions about road safety, rules, and how vehicles work. You’ll also take a hazard perception test to see how well you can spot and respond to dangers on the road.

Test Components:

Multiple-Choice Questions:

Total Questions: 100

Passing Score: You need at least 85 correct answers out of 100.

Hazard Perception Test

Video Clips: You will watch 19 video clips.

Scoreable Hazards: There are 20 hazards that you can score points on.

Passing Score: You need to score at least 67 out of 100.


Total Time: The entire Module 1 test typically takes around 2.5 hours to complete.

Module 2: Case Studies

In Module 2 of the Driver CPC, known as the Case Study Theory Test, you’ll take a computer-based test with everyday driving scenarios. These cases are similar to what you might see while driving. The main goal is to check how well you can use what you’ve learned in real-life situations.

The computer test shows example of situations happens on real roads. It checks if you can use what you know practically. Questions can be different, like choosing options, clicking on parts or pictures, or giving short answers.

The test includes 7 case studies, each with six to eight questions. To pass, you need to achieve a total score of 40 out of 50. It takes about one and a half hours to complete, and you can take it at the same location as Module 1 on the same day.

Module 3: Practical Driving Test

Driver CPC Module 3 comprises two separate tests: 3a and 3b.

Driver CPC 3a Test – The Driver CPC 3a Test, focusing on Off-Road Exercises, includes a practical demonstration of a reversing exercise. To book the Driver CPC 3a test, you must have passed the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) part 1 theory test.

Driver CPC 3b Test – On-Road Driving: This test involves vehicle safety queries and a one-hour practical road driving assessment. During the vehicle safety questions, you will face “Show Me, Tell Me” queries related to vehicle safety. These questions ask you to explain how you would perform specific safety tasks (“Tell Me”) and demonstrate certain tasks on the vehicle (“Show Me”).

During the practical on-road driving test, the examiner closely observes your use of the vehicle’s controls. This assessment offers a clear picture of your driving proficiency and how well you manage the vehicle’s safety on the road.

Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test

CPC Module 4 of CPC focuses on five crucial topic areas:

Safely Load and Secure the Vehicle: Make sure you load the vehicle properly following safety rules and take steps to keep it secure.

Prevent Trafficking in Illegal Immigrants: Take steps to prevent trafficking in illegal immigrants.

Handle Emergency Situations: Evaluate and respond effectively to emergency situations.

Minimize Physical Risks: Reduce physical risks to yourself and others.

Vehicle Safety Walk around Check: Conduct a thorough walk around check to ensure everything is in order with the vehicle.

The test covers five topics from the Driver CPC syllabus. You can score up to 20 points in each topic. To pass, you need at least 15 points in each topic and a total of at least 80 out of 100 overall. This practical test checks how well you can drive safely and professionally.

The order in which you complete the CPC modules depends on your career goals and whether you intend to pursue professional driving. If your focus is not on professional driving, it is recommended to start with Module 1: Theory Test and then move on to Module 3: Practical Driving Test. However, if you later decide to pursue a career as a professional driver, it is advisable to begin with Module 2: Case Study Test and then proceed to Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test. It’s important to adhere to the required sequence: passing Module 1 before attempting Module 3, and passing Module 2 before taking Module 4. This ensures that you fulfill the necessary qualifications in a manner that aligns with your career objectives.

Question: Do I need to complete specific CPC modules if I’m unsure about pursuing a career as a professional driver?

Answer: Yes, it’s recommended to pass Modules 1 and 3 regardless of your initial career choice.

Question: What if I decide later to pursue a career as an HGV/LGV driver?

Answer: If you decide to become a professional HGV/LGV driver later on, you’ll need to pass Modules 2 and 4 to meet the necessary qualifications.

Once you’ve successfully completed all four Driver CPC modules, you’ll receive a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) card, also referred to as a ‘driver qualification card’ or ‘DQC.’ This card will be sent to the address associated with your driving licence. It’s important to keep your address details on your driving licence up to date to ensure timely and accurate delivery.

It’s essential to keep your photograph and signature up to date on your driving licence. If there are any changes to your appearance or personal details, make sure to promptly update them with the licensing authorities. This ensures that the information on your DQC accurately represents your identity.

Having your Driver CPC card is mandatory when driving professionally, especially for HGVs, buses, or coaches. However, if you’ve passed the necessary tests and are waiting for your card to arrive, you’re allowed to drive temporarily without it.

If you’ve requalified through 35 hours of training, it’s crucial to ensure that your training provider records your training within five working days of completing it. Failing to do so could prevent you from driving while waiting for your card to be delivered.

After passing your final test, your Driver CPC card should typically arrive within 20 days. If it doesn’t arrive, you should contact the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) for assistance. For inquiries about card replacements or other questions, you can reach DVSA via email at cpcre@dvsa.gov.uk or by calling 0300 123 7721.

Driver CPC Periodic Training is required for professional drivers where drivers need to complete 35 hours of training every five years to maintain their qualification for driving professionally. This training is essential for staying updated on industry regulations, enhancing skills, and ensuring a high standard of safety and professionalism while driving.
