The Driver CPC is for LGV and PCV drivers who drive professionally throughout the UK and Europe. It has been developed as a requirement of the EU Directive 2003/59, which is designed to improve the knowledge and skills of professional LGV and PCV drivers throughout their working life. There are two parts to the legislation:

The Initial Qualification

The Initial Qualification (Module 2 + 4) must be achieved by new LGV and PCV drivers along with their vocational licence to enable them to use their licence professionally.

The Module 2 test is made up of case studies that candidates work through on a computer. The case studies are short stories based on situations that drivers are likely to come across during their working life.  We provide revision material through an online portal to revise for the exam and then book the test at the candidates local DSA Theory Test Centre.

The CPC Module 4 has been introduced to allow new entrants to confirm they can carry out a number of operations, other than driving such as crucial safety checks on the vehicle.  The module 4 test is interactive and candidates will be expected to explain and demonstrate answers using a suitable LGV or PCV vehicle.

As an approved practical testing centre, we train and test at our facility, providing candidates with the relevant revision material and training to ensure they are fully prepared for test.

Periodic Training

35 hours of training every 5 years must be attended by all professional drivers.

The Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) is for drivers of passenger carrying vehicles (PCV) and drivers of large goods vehicles (LGV) who drive professionally throughout the UK and the rest of Europe. It is a legal requirement that involves all professional drivers undertaking 35 hours of Periodic Training every 5 years. Qualification is by attendance so there are no tests or exams to take at the end of the course.
