Driver CPC Training Courses –  London

What is Driver CPC? It stands for Driver Certificate of Professional Competence. It is a mandatory qualification for professional Truck / Lorry, Coach and Bus Drivers. Its purpose is to enhance road safety and maintain high standards of driving skills among professional drivers.

It’s a rule for all Truck / Lorry, Coach and Bus Drivers who want to make a living by driving. If you drive big trucks for a living (like HGV or LGV), you must have a Driver Qualification Card (DQC). Drivers with existing licences must complete Periodic Training to keep their CPC.

At our Dhoot Driving School in London, we offer Initial driver CPC and Periodic Training for new and experienced drivers. We provide training and lessons in multiple languages, (Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Kashmiri, English, Polish, Albanian, Arabic, Bengali, Cantonese, Dari, English, Farsi, Spanish, Tamil, Turkish, Urdu, Welsh and many more). All our trainers are approved by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and can speak multiple languages.

Initial driver CPC (Required for New Professional Truck/Lorry, coach, bus Drivers)

The Initial Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) comprises four modules. These modules are designed to check and make sure that new Lorry / Truck, Bus and Coach Drivers have the right knowledge, skills, and understanding of safety rules.

Module 1: Theory Test-

Module 1 of the CPC includes multiple-choice questions covering road safety, rules, and vehicle operations. Additionally, there’s a hazard perception test designed to assess your ability to identify and respond to potential hazards on the road.

Test Components:

Multiple-Choice Questions:

  • 100 multiple-choice questions.
  • The pass mark is 85 out of 100.

Hazard Perception Test:

  • 19 hazard perception video clips.
  • There are 20 scoreable hazards.

The 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 of the Driver CPC, known as the Case Study Theory Test, is conducted on a computer and focuses on real-life scenarios. These case studies are designed to simulate situations you might encounter in your daily driving experiences. The primary aim is to assess your reasoning skills and the practical application of your knowledge.

The test is computer-based, presenting case studies that reflect real-life scenarios on the road. The test evaluates your ability to apply theoretical knowledge to practical situations.

Questions are framed by industry experts and given in formats, such as multiple-choice, clicking on an area or photograph, or providing short answers.

The test consists of 7 case studies, each containing six to eight questions. To pass, you need a total score of 40 out of 50. The test duration is one and a half hours. You have the flexibility to take the test at the same test centre as Module 1 and on the same day,

Module 3: Practical Driving Test

Driver CPC module 3 is divided into 2 tests one is 3a and the other one is 3b.

Driver CPC 3a Test – Off-Road Exercises: Module 3a is a practical demonstration of a reversing exercise. To book the Driver CPC part 3a test, it is necessary to have successfully completed the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) part 1 theory test.

Driver CPC 3b Test – on-road driving

Driver CPC 3b test includes vehicle safety questions and 1 hour of practical road driving. In vehicle safety questions you’ll be asked Show Me, Tell Me Questions. You will be asked questions regarding vehicle safety and need to explain how you would perform specific safety tasks (“Tell Me”). Additionally, you may be asked to physically demonstrate certain safety tasks on the vehicle (“Show Me”)

During the practical on-road driving test, the examiner will observe how you use the vehicles controls.

Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test

CPC Module 4 covers 5 topic areas.

  1. Load the Vehicle Safely and Ensure Security:
  • Properly load the vehicle while adhering to safety rules and take measures to keep it secure.
  1. Prevent Trafficking in Illegal Immigrants:
  • Take steps to stop trafficking in illegal immigrants.
  1. Assess Emergency Situations:
  • Evaluate and respond effectively to emergency situations.
  1. Minimize Physical Risks:
  • Reduce physical risks to yourself and others.
  1. Perform a Walk around Vehicle Safety Check:
  • Conduct a thorough walk around vehicle safety check to ensure everything is in order.

The test comprises five topics aligned with the Driver CPC syllabus. A maximum of 20 points can be scored for each topic.

To successfully pass the test, you must achieve a minimum of 15 out of 20 points in each individual topic area, and overall, you need to score at least 80 out of 100 to pass the test.

Choosing the order of CPC modules depends on your career goals and whether you plan to become a professional driver. Here’s a guideline:

If You Choose Not to Become a Professional Driver:

  • Pass Module 1: Theory Test.
  • Pass Module 3: Practical Driving Test.

If You Later Decide to Become a Professional Driver:

  • Pass Module 2: Case Study Test.
  • Pass Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test.

Keep in mind the compulsory sequence:

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

This means that even if you initially decide not to become a professional driver, you would still need to pass Modules 1 and 3. If you later change your mind and decide to pursue a career as a driver, you would then need to pass Modules 2 and 4.

By following this order, you align with the requirements and ensure you meet the necessary qualifications for your chosen career path.

After successfully passing all four Driver CPC modules, you will be sent a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) card also known as a ‘driver qualification card’ or ‘DQC’. The card will be sent to the address associated with your driving licence. It’s crucial to ensure that your address details on your driving licence are accurate and up to date.

It’s essential to ensure that your photograph and signature on your driving licence are up to date and accurately represent you. Any changes to your appearance or personal details should be updated with the relevant licensing authorities to ensure that the information on your DQC is current and reflective of your identity.

It is mandatory to have your Driver CPC card with you when professionally driving an HGV, bus, or coach.

However, if you have passed the required tests and are awaiting the arrival of your card, you are permitted to drive without it temporarily.

If you are requalified by taking 35 hours of training, make sure your training provider has recorded your training within 5 working days of you completing it. Failure to do so will prohibit you from driving while waiting for your card to be delivered.

After passing the final test, you should receive your Driver CPC card within 20 days. If you don’t receive it within this timeframe, it’s important to reach out to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) for assistance.

For Driver CPC card replacements or inquiries, you can contact DVSA through the following:

Driver CPC Periodic Training-

For professional drivers, it is mandatory to undergo 35 hours of periodic training every five years to maintain the qualifications required for driving professionally. This training is essential for ensuring that drivers stay updated on industry regulations, enhance their skills, and contribute to maintaining a high standard of safety and professionalism in their driving practices.
