Driver CPC, or Driver Certificate of Professional Competence, is a mandatory qualification specifically designed for professional Truck / Lorry, Coach and Bus Drivers. The primary objective of this certification is to elevate road safety standards and uphold a high level of driving skills among professionals in the industry.

For individuals looking to pursue a career in driving large vehicles like HGV or LGV, obtaining a Driver Qualification Card (DQC) is imperative. The DQC serves as proof that the driver has successfully completed the required training and is qualified to drive professionally. Existing license holders are required to undergo Periodic Training at every 5 years to ensure the continuous development of their CPC and stay updated on industry regulations.

In essence, Driver CPC is a crucial rule applicable to all Truck / Lorry, Coach and Bus Drivers who earn their livelihood through driving. It not only sets a standard for competence but also emphasizes the importance of ongoing training and skill enhancement to maintain the highest levels of safety and professionalism on the road.

Initial driver CPC

The Initial Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) is a mandatory requirement for new truck/lorry, coach, and bus drivers. This certification consists of four modules, designed to assess, and confirm that new drivers of large vehicles, such as lorries, trucks, buses, and coaches, possess the necessary knowledge, skills, and understanding of safety rules. The four modules cover a comprehensive range of topics essential for safe and competent driving in professional capacities.

Module 1: Theory Test

Module 1 of the CPC (Driver Certificate of Professional Competence) involves a comprehensive Theory Test. This module is designed to evaluate your understanding of road safety, rules, and vehicle operations. The test comprises two main components:

  1. Multiple-Choice Questions:
  • There are 100 multiple-choice questions.
  • To pass, you need a minimum score of 85 out of 100.
  1. Hazard Perception Test:
  • This section includes 19 hazard perception video clips.
  • You must identify and respond to 20 scoreable hazards.
  • The pass mark for this part is 67 out of 100.

The complete Module 1 test generally takes about 2.5 hours to finish. It assesses your theoretical knowledge and your ability to recognize and respond to potential hazards on the road, ensuring that you are well-equipped with the essential information for safe driving practices.

Module 2: Case Studies

Module 2 of the Driver CPC, also known as the Case Study Theory Test, is a computer-based assessment focusing on real-life scenarios. This test aims to evaluate your practical application of knowledge and reasoning skills in situations commonly encountered during daily driving experiences.

The test presents case studies that replicate real-life scenarios on the road. Your ability to apply theoretical knowledge to practical situations is thoroughly assessed. Questions are crafted by industry experts and are presented in various formats, including multiple-choice, clicking on an area or photograph, or providing short answers.

Comprising 7 case studies, each containing six to eight questions, the test requires a total score of 40 out of 50 to pass. The duration of the test is one and a half hours, providing flexibility for candidates to take it at the same test centre as Module 1 and on the same day. This module ensures drivers can effectively apply their knowledge to diverse driving scenarios, contributing to safer road practices.

Module 3: Practical Driving Test

Module 3 of the Driver CPC consists of two tests, namely 3a and 3b.

The Driver CPC 3a test, Off-Road Exercises, is a practical demonstration of a reversing exercise. To book the Driver CPC part 3a test, successful completion of the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) part 1 theory test is a prerequisite.

On the other hand, the Driver CPC 3b test involves on-road driving. This test includes vehicle safety questions and a 1-hour practical road driving component. During the vehicle safety questions, you’ll be asked Show Me, Tell Me Questions, where you 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”). The practical on-road driving test assesses your use of the vehicle’s controls, and an examiner will observe your driving skills and adherence to safety protocols.

Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test

Module 4 of the Driver CPC, the Practical Demonstration Test, covers five essential topic areas:

  1. Load the Vehicle Safely and Ensure Security:
    • Properly load the vehicle while adhering to safety rules and take measures to keep the load secure.
  2. Prevent Trafficking in Illegal Immigrants:
    • Take steps to prevent trafficking in illegal immigrants.
  3. Assess Emergency Situations:
    • Evaluate and respond effectively to emergency situations.
  4. Minimize Physical Risks:
    • Implement measures to reduce physical risks to yourself and others.
  5. Perform a Walkaround Vehicle Safety Check:
    • Conduct a thorough walkaround vehicle safety check to ensure everything is in order.

The test comprises these five topics aligned with the Driver CPC syllabus. Each topic allows a maximum score of 20 points. To pass the test, you must achieve a minimum of 15 out of 20 points in each individual topic area. Overall, you need to score at least 80 out of 100 to successfully pass the Module 4 test.

When deciding the order of CPC modules, your choice should align with your career goals and whether you intend to pursue a professional driving career. For those opting not to become professional drivers, the recommended sequence is to first pass Module 1, the Theory Test, followed by Module 3, the Practical Driving Test. However, if you later decide to pursue a professional driving career, the order changes, with Module 2, the Case Study Test, coming after Module 1, and Module 4, the Practical Demonstration Test, following Module 3. It is crucial to adhere to the compulsory sequence, ensuring that Module 1 is successfully completed before attempting Module 3, and Module 2 is passed before proceeding to Module 4. This structured approach ensures a systematic and comprehensive acquisition of knowledge and skills, aligning with the specific requirements for both non-professional and professional drivers.

Upon successfully completing all four Driver CPC modules, you’ll be issued a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) card, also known as a ‘driver qualification card’ or ‘DQC.’ This card is dispatched to the address associated with your driving license, emphasizing the need for accurate and up-to-date address details on your license.

Maintaining current details is critical for your photograph and signature on the driving license, ensuring they accurately represent you. Any changes in appearance or personal information must be promptly updated with relevant licensing authorities to reflect your identity on the DQC.

Possession of the Driver CPC card is mandatory when professionally driving an HGV, bus, or coach. If you’ve passed the required tests and await the card’s arrival, temporary driving without it is permitted. For those requalifying with 35 hours of training, timely recording of completed training by your provider within 5 working days is essential to avoid driving restrictions while awaiting the card.

Upon passing the final test, the Driver CPC card is typically dispatched within 20 days. If not received within this timeframe, contacting the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is advised. For card replacements or inquiries, DVSA can be reached at cpcre@dvsa.gov.uk or by telephone at 0300 123 7721.

Driver CPC Periodic Training

For drivers working professionally, it’s mandatory to undergo 35 hours of training every five years. This training is important to keep drivers updated on the rules and regulations of the industry, improve their skills, and maintain a high level of safety and professionalism while driving. It ensures that drivers are aware of any changes in the rules and equips them with the knowledge and skills needed to perform their job well. By completing this training regularly, drivers not only meet the required standards but also contribute to creating a safe and competent driving community. It emphasizes the ongoing commitment to staying informed and skilled in the ever-changing world of transportation, leading to safer roads and better professional drivers.
