Initial Driver CPC: Essential for New Professional Drivers

To embark on your career as a truck, lorry, coach, or bus driver, obtaining the Initial Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) is crucial. This certification process consists of four comprehensive modules, ensuring that new drivers acquire essential knowledge, skills, and safety awareness.

Module 1: Theory Test Module 1 of the CPC assesses your theoretical understanding through a structured test:

  • Content: Multiple-choice questions covering road safety, rules, and vehicle operations.
  • Format: Includes a hazard perception test with 19 video clips featuring 20 scoreable hazards.
  • Pass Requirements: Achieve a pass mark of 85 out of 100 for multiple-choice questions and 67 out of 100 for hazard perception.
  • Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours.

Module 2: Case Studies Module 2, the Case Study Theory Test, evaluates your ability to apply knowledge in practical scenarios:

  • Assessment: Computer-based assessment with questions framed by industry experts.
  • Focus: Simulates real-life driving situations to test reasoning skills and practical application.
  • Structure: Consists of 7 case studies, each with multiple-choice questions in varied formats.
  • Pass Criteria: Score a minimum of 40 out of 50.
  • Convenience: Available at the same center as Module 1, on the same day.

Module 3: Practical Driving Test Module 3, comprising tests 3a and 3b, evaluates your practical driving abilities:

  • Scoring Requirements: Achieve a minimum of 15 out of 20 points in each topic area.
  • Overall Score: Attain an overall score of at least 80 out of 100.

Choosing the Order of CPC Modules

The sequence in which you undertake CPC modules depends largely on your career aspirations, particularly if you intend to pursue professional driving. Here’s how to plan your path:

Non-Professional Driver Path:

  • Module 1: Theory Test: Master road safety, rules, and vehicle operations through a comprehensive multiple-choice and hazard perception test.
  • Module 3: Practical Driving Test: Demonstrate your driving skills with off-road and on-road assessments, including vehicle safety procedures.

Professional Driver Path:

  • Module 2: Case Study Test: Delve into real-life scenarios through a computer-based assessment, evaluating practical application and reasoning skills.
  • Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test: Showcase your ability to apply safety measures while operating commercial vehicles in scenarios such as safe loading, emergency response, and vehicle checks.

Mandatory Sequence:

  • Module 1 before Module 3: Ensure foundational theory knowledge before practical driving assessments.
  • Module 2 before Module 4: Build on case study insights before demonstrating practical competence.

Upon completing all four Driver CPC modules, you will receive your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) card:

  • Card Issuance: Sent to your registered driving license address.
  • Maintenance: Keep license details, photo, and signature current to avoid delays.
  • Temporary Driving: Allowed if awaiting the CPC card after passing tests.
  • 35-Hour Training Record: Ensure timely recording by your provider to avoid driving restrictions.

After passing the final module, anticipate receiving your CPC card within 20 days. Contact DVSA promptly if there are delays:

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