  • Driver Qualification Card (DQC): For those aiming to drive HGV or LGV vehicles professionally, obtaining a Driver Qualification Card (DQC) is essential. This card certifies that the driver has completed necessary training and is qualified to operate these vehicles safely.
  • Periodic Training: Holders of existing licenses must undergo Periodic Training every five years to continually develop their CPC and stay updated on industry regulations. This training ensures drivers remain competent and informed throughout their careers.

In essence, Driver CPC sets a standard of competence for all Truck / Lorry, Coach, and Bus Drivers, emphasizing the ongoing importance of training and skill enhancement. By adhering to these standards, drivers contribute to safer roads and uphold professionalism in their driving practices.

Initial Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence)

The Initial Driver CPC is a mandatory requirement for new truck/lorry, coach, and bus drivers, comprising four modules designed to ensure drivers possess the necessary knowledge, skills, and understanding of safety rules essential for professional driving.

Module 1: Theory Test

Module 1 of the Driver CPC involves a comprehensive Theory Test to evaluate understanding of road safety, rules, and vehicle operations.

  • Multiple-Choice Questions:
    • 100 multiple-choice questions.
    • Minimum score of 85 out of 100 required to pass.
  • Hazard Perception Test:
    • 19 hazard perception video clips.
    • Identify and respond to 20 scoreable hazards.
    • Pass mark of 67 out of 100.
  • Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours.

Module 1 assesses theoretical knowledge and ability to recognize and respond to potential road hazards, ensuring drivers are prepared for safe driving practices.

Module 2: Case Studies

Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test

Module 4 of the Driver CPC, the Practical Demonstration Test, assesses drivers on five crucial topic areas aligned with the Driver CPC syllabus.

  1. Load the Vehicle Safely and Ensure Security:
    • Properly load the vehicle while following safety rules.
    • Ensure the load is secure during transport.

Each topic allows a maximum score of 20 points. To pass Module 4, you must achieve a minimum of 15 out of 20 points in each individual area and an overall score of at least 80 out of 100. This test ensures drivers are competent in applying safety measures and procedures while operating commercial vehicles.

When planning the sequence of CPC modules, it’s crucial to align your choices with your career aspirations, particularly if you aim to pursue a professional driving career. Here’s a structured approach based on your goals:

  1. Non-Professional Drivers:
    • Start with Module 1: Theory Test to build a strong foundation in road safety, rules, and vehicle operations.
    • Follow up with Module 3: Practical Driving Test to demonstrate your practical driving skills on the road.
  2. Professional Drivers:
    • Begin with Module 1: Theory Test to establish a solid understanding of theoretical knowledge required for professional driving.
    • Progress to Module 2: Case Study Test to apply your knowledge to real-life driving scenarios effectively.
    • Next, tackle Module 3: Practical Driving Test to showcase your on-road driving abilities.
    • Complete the sequence with Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test, focusing on practical skills such as vehicle safety checks and emergency response.

Adhering to this structured approach ensures a comprehensive acquisition of knowledge and skills necessary for both non-professional and professional drivers, aligning with the specific requirements of the Driver CPC.

Upon successful completion of all four Driver CPC modules, you will receive your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) card, also known as a ‘driver qualification card’ or ‘DQC’. This card will be sent to the address linked to your driving license. It’s essential to maintain accurate and up-to-date address details on your license to ensure the correct delivery of your DQC.

Keeping your photograph and signature current on your driving license is crucial for accurate identification. Promptly update any changes in appearance or personal information with the relevant licensing authorities to ensure your identity reflects on the DQC.

Possession of the Driver CPC card is mandatory when driving professionally an HGV, bus, or coach. If you’ve completed the required tests and are awaiting your card, you can temporarily drive without it. However, for those requalifying with 35 hours of training, ensure your provider records the completed training within 5 working days to avoid driving restrictions while waiting for the card.

Once you pass the final test, expect your Driver CPC card to be dispatched within 20 days. If it doesn’t arrive within this timeframe, contact the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) at cpcre@dvsa.gov.uk or by telephone at 0300 123 7721 for assistance with card replacements or inquiries.

Driver CPC Periodic Training is a critical requirement for professional drivers, mandating 35 hours of training every five years. This ongoing education plays a vital role in keeping drivers abreast of evolving industry regulations, enhancing their proficiency, and bolstering safety standards on the road. By engaging in regular training sessions, drivers not only meet statutory obligations but also elevate their competence levels, ensuring they can adeptly navigate complex driving scenarios. This commitment to continuous learning underscores their dedication to maintaining high standards of safety and professionalism, ultimately contributing to a safer and more skilled driving community.
