Who Needs Driver CPC?

Initial Driver CPC

The Initial Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) is an essential qualification for new professional truck/lorry, coach, and bus drivers. It consists of four modules designed to ensure that new drivers have the necessary knowledge, skills, and understanding of safety rules for operating large vehicles.

Module 1: Theory Test

Module 1 assesses your knowledge of road safety, rules, and vehicle operations through multiple-choice questions. This module also includes a hazard perception test to evaluate your ability to identify and respond to potential hazards on the road. The test consists of:

  • 100 multiple-choice questions: Pass mark of 85 out of 100.
  • Hazard perception test: 19 video clips featuring 20 scoreable hazards. Pass mark is 67 out of 100.

The entire Module 1 test takes approximately 2.5 hours to complete.

Module 2: Case Studies

Module 2 focuses on real-life scenarios and is conducted on a computer as part of the Driver CPC. This test aims to assess your reasoning skills and practical application of knowledge. It presents case studies that simulate daily driving situations, evaluating your ability to apply theoretical knowledge practically. Key features include:

  • 7 case studies: Each with six to eight questions.
  • Various question formats: Multiple-choice, clicking on an area or photograph, or providing short answers.

To pass, you need a total score of 40 out of 50. The test duration is one and a half hours and can be taken at the same test center as Module 1 on the same day.

Module 3: Practical Driving Test

Module 3 is a two-part assessment (3a and 3b) under Driver CPC.

Part 3a: Off-Road Exercises

  • Involves a practical demonstration of a reversing exercise.
  • To book the 3a test, you must have successfully completed the CPC part 1 theory test.

Part 3b: On-Road Driving

  • Includes vehicle safety questions and 1 hour of practical road driving.
  • Show Me, Tell Me Questions: Require you to explain how you would perform specific safety tasks (“Tell Me”) and possibly demonstrate them (“Show Me”).

During the practical on-road driving test, the examiner observes how you use the vehicle’s controls.


Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test

CPC Module 4 is a critical component of the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC), emphasizing practical demonstrations. This module assesses your ability to implement safety and security measures effectively. The test covers several key areas:

Safe Loading

  • Proper Loading Techniques: Ensuring the vehicle is loaded correctly following safety regulations.
  • Load Security: Keeping the cargo secure throughout the journey.

Preventing Trafficking

  • Anti-Trafficking Measures: Taking necessary steps to prevent illegal immigrant trafficking.

Emergency Situations

  • Crisis Response: Evaluating and responding efficiently to road emergencies.

Minimizing Physical Risks

  • Risk Reduction: Applying strategies to minimize physical risks for yourself and others.

Vehicle Safety Check

  • Comprehensive Inspection: Performing a thorough walk-around safety check to confirm the vehicle’s readiness.

To pass this test, you must achieve:

  • Minimum Score: 15 out of 20 points in each individual topic.
  • Overall Score: At least 80 out of 100 points.

Mastering these areas ensures your competency in maintaining high safety standards while driving professionally.

Choosing the Order of CPC Modules

Selecting the order of your CPC modules is essential, especially if you aim to become a professional driver. Here’s a streamlined guideline to help you through the process:

If You Choose Not to Become a Professional Driver:

  1. Pass Module 1: Theory Test
  • Focus: Theoretical examination on road safety, rules, and vehicle operations.
  1. Pass Module 3: Practical Driving Test
  • Focus: Demonstrating practical driving skills to ensure safe vehicle operation.

If You Later Decide to Become a Professional Driver:

  1. Pass Module 2: Case Study Test
  • Focus: Evaluating your ability to apply theoretical knowledge to real-life driving scenarios.
  1. Pass Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test
  • Focus: Showcasing your understanding and application of vehicle safety measures through practical demonstrations.

Remember the Compulsory Sequence:

Pass Module 1 Before Taking Module 3

  • Requirement: Complete the Theory Test before proceeding to the Practical Driving Test.

Pass Module 2 Before Taking Module 4

  • Requirement: Finish the Case Study Test before undertaking the Practical Demonstration Test.

By following this structured approach, you can efficiently meet the necessary qualifications for your driving career, whether you initially plan to be a professional driver or decide to pursue it later.

Receiving Your Driver CPC Card

After successfully completing all four Driver CPC modules, you will be awarded a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) card, commonly known as a ‘Driver Qualification Card’ (DQC).

Important Steps to Follow:

  1. Verify Your Details
    • The card will be sent to the address listed on your driving licence. Ensure your address, photo, and signature are up-to-date and accurately represent you.
    • If you have any changes in appearance or personal details, promptly update them with the relevant licensing authorities.
  1. Driving Professionally
    • It is mandatory to carry your Driver CPC card when driving Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV), buses, or coaches professionally.
    • If you’ve passed your tests but are still waiting for your card to arrive, you are allowed to drive temporarily without it.
  1. Requalification and Training Records
    • If you have requalified by completing the required 35 hours of training, make sure your training provider records it within 5 working days. Failure to do so may prevent you from driving while awaiting your card.
  1. Card Delivery
    • Expect to receive your Driver CPC card within 20 days after passing the final test.
    • If you do not receive your card within this timeframe, contact the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) for assistance.

DVSA Contact Information:

  • Email: cpcre@dvsa.gov.uk
  • Telephone: 0300 123 7721

Ensure all your details are accurate and current to avoid any delays or issues with receiving your Driver CPC card. Safe driving!

Importance of Driver CPC Periodic Training
