  • Hazard perception: 67 out of 100

Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours

Module 2: Case Studies

Module 2 is a computer-based assessment focused on real-life scenarios to test your reasoning skills and practical application of knowledge.

Choosing Your CPC Module Sequence

Deciding the order of CPC modules depends on your career aspirations, whether you’re aiming to become a professional driver or not. Here’s a clear guide:

If You Don’t Plan to Become a Professional Driver:

  • Module 1: Theory Test
    • Complete the theoretical exam focusing on road safety, rules, and vehicle operations.
  • Module 3: Practical Driving Test
    • Demonstrate your practical driving skills to ensure safe vehicle operation.

If You Later Choose to Become a Professional Driver:

  • Module 2: Case Study Test
    • Undertake the Case Study Theory Test to apply theoretical knowledge in real-life scenarios.
  • Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test
    • Successfully complete the practical demonstration test, showcasing your understanding of vehicle safety and security measures.

Compulsory Sequence:

  • Pass Module 1 before taking Module 3.
  • Pass Module 2 before taking Module 4.

After Passing All Four Driver CPC Modules

Upon successfully completing all four Driver CPC modules, you will receive a 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 licence. It is crucial to ensure accuracy in your driving licence details, especially your address.

Ensure your photograph and signature on the licence are current and accurately represent you. Promptly update any changes in appearance or personal details with the relevant licensing authorities to maintain the correctness of your DQC information.

Requirements When Driving Professionally

Having your Driver CPC card is mandatory when driving an HGV, bus, or coach professionally. However, if you’ve passed the tests and are awaiting the card’s arrival, a temporary allowance permits driving without it. Ensure your training provider records the completion of 35 hours of re-qualification training within 5 working days. Failure to do so may prohibit driving while awaiting the card.

Receipt of Driver CPC Card

Upon passing the final test, expect to receive your Driver CPC card within 20 days. If not received within this timeframe, promptly contact the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) for assistance. For card replacements or inquiries, reach out to DVSA via email at cpcre@dvsa.gov.uk or call: 0300 123 7721.

Driver CPC Periodic Training: Enhancing Professional Driving Skills

Driver CPC Periodic Training is a mandatory requirement for professional drivers, involving 35 hours of training every five years. This training is vital for:

  • Staying Updated: Drivers remain informed about industry regulations and best practices.
  • Skill Enhancement: It improves driving skills and promotes safe driving practices.
  • Maintaining Standards: Ensures a high level of safety and professionalism in driving.
  • Compliance: Helps drivers meet regulatory requirements and maintain their professional qualifications.

Periodic training plays a crucial role in enhancing driver competence, fostering safer roads, and contributing to continuous improvements in professional driving standards.
