This qualification is a prerequisite for individuals making a livelihood through driving, particularly for those operating large vehicles such as HGV or LGV. Professional drivers in the category of Truck / Lorry, Coach and Bus must possess a Driver Qualification Card (DQC). Additionally, drivers with existing licenses are required to undergo Periodic Training to ensure the continuous validity of their CPC.

Getting Started with Initial Driver CPC – Essential for New Professional Truck, Lorry, Coach and Bus Drivers

The Initial Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) is a prerequisite for individuals entering the professional driving field, specifically for trucks, lorries, coaches, and buses. Consisting of four modules, this initial certification is designed to assess and ensure that new drivers in these categories possess the necessary knowledge, skills, and understanding of safety rules.

Module 1: Theory Test

In Module 1 of the CPC, you’ll encounter multiple-choice questions that focus on road safety, rules, and vehicle operations. Additionally, there’s a hazard perception test to evaluate your ability to spot and respond to potential dangers on the road.

Test Components:

Multiple-Choice Questions:

  • 100 multiple-choice questions in total.
  • To pass, you need a minimum score of 85 out of 100.

Hazard Perception Test:

  • You’ll face 19 hazard perception video clips.
  • There are 20 scoreable hazards.

The pass mark for the hazard perception test is 67 out of 100. The entire Module 1 test typically takes around 2.5 hours to complete.


Module 2: Case Studies

In Module 2 of the Driver CPC, also known as the Case Study Theory Test, you’ll face a computer-based assessment that looks at everyday situations. These cases are like what you might come across when driving regularly. The main goal is to see how well you can think and use what you’ve learned in real-life situations.

The test on the computer shows situations like what happens on real roads. It checks if you can use what you know in practical ways. The questions, made by experts, can be in different forms like picking choices, clicking on areas or pictures, or giving short answers.

There are 7 case studies in the test, each with six to eight questions. To pass, you need a total score of 40 out of 50. The test takes one and a half hours, and you can do it at the same place as Module 1 on the same day.


Module 3: Practical Driving Test 

Driver CPC Module 3 consists of two distinct tests: 3a and 3b.

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

Driver CPC 3b Test – On-Road Driving: The 3b test includes vehicle safety questions and one hour of practical road driving. In the vehicle safety questions, you’ll encounter “Show Me, Tell Me” Queries. These questions pertain to vehicle safety, requiring you to explain how you would perform specific safety tasks (“Tell Me”). Additionally, you might be asked to physically demonstrate certain safety tasks on the vehicle (“Show Me”).

Throughout the practical on-road driving test, the examiner will carefully observe how you use the vehicle’s controls. This evaluation provides insight into your real-world driving skills and your ability to handle the vehicle safely on the road.


Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test

CPC Module 4 of CPC focuses on five crucial topic areas:

  1. Safely Load and Secure the Vehicle:
  • Make sure you load the vehicle properly following safety rules and take steps to keep it secure.
  1. Prevent Trafficking in Illegal Immigrants:
  • Take steps to prevent trafficking in illegal immigrants.
  1. Handle Emergency Situations:
  • Evaluate and respond effectively to emergency situations.
  1. Minimize Physical Risks:
  • Reduce physical risks to yourself and others.
  1. Vehicle Safety Walk around Check:
  • Conduct a thorough walk around check to ensure everything is in order with the vehicle.

The test covers these five topics in alignment with the Driver CPC syllabus. Each topic allows a maximum of 20 points to be scored. 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 test. This practical demonstration assesses your competence in various critical aspects of professional driving.

The order in which you take the CPC modules depends on your career aspirations and whether you aim to become a professional driver. For those not pursuing a career in professional driving, the suggested sequence is to first pass Module 1: Theory Test and then proceed to Module 3: Practical Driving Test. However, if you later decide to become a professional driver, it is advised to pass Module 2: Case Study Test followed by Module 4: Practical Demonstration Test. It’s crucial to follow the compulsory sequence: passing Module 1 before attempting Module 3 and passing Module 2 before taking Module 4. This ensures that you meet the necessary qualifications in an order that aligns with your career goals.


 If I’m uncertain about pursuing a career as a professional driver, do I still need to take specific CPC modules?

Answer: Yes, even if you initially decide not to become a professional driver, passing Modules 1 and 3 is still necessary.

What happens if I change my mind later and decide to pursue a career as an HGV/LGV driver? Answer: If you change your mind and decide to become a professional HGV/LGV driver, you would then need to pass Modules 2 and 4.


After successfully passing 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.’ The card will be dispatched to the address linked with your driving licence. It is crucial to ensure the accuracy and currency of your address details on your driving licence.

Maintaining the accuracy of your photograph and signature on your driving licence is equally vital. Any changes to your appearance or personal details should be promptly updated with the relevant licensing authorities to ensure that the information on your DQC accurately reflects your identity.

Having your Driver CPC card is mandatory 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 temporarily permitted to drive without it.

For those who have requalified through 35 hours of training, it is essential to verify that your training provider records your training within five working days of its completion. Failure to do so may prohibit you from driving while awaiting the delivery of your card.


Once you pass the final test, your Driver CPC card should arrive within 20 days. If it doesn’t, then need to reach the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) for help. For card replacements or questions, you can also contact DVSA via email at cpcre@dvsa.gov.uk or by calling 0300 123 7721.

Regarding Driver CPC Periodic Training, professional drivers must complete 35 hours of training every five years to keep their qualification for driving professionally. This training is crucial for staying updated on industry rules, improving skills, and ensuring a high standard of safety and professionalism while driving.
