Driver CPC - Certificate of Professional Competence

Driver CPC Training Courses In Pontefract, Yorkshire

ABOUT THE DRIVER CPC

Driver CPC was introduced in 2008 and affects all lorry and bus drivers wishing to drive commercially. There are two types of Driver CPC, ‘Initial’ and ‘Periodic’. The one you need depends on the type of licence you currently hold.

INITIAL CPC

This is for drivers who passed their car test after 01/01/1997.

There are two stages to obtaining a CPC using this method. First of all a Module 2 case study will be required. This is a theory-based test taken at your local theory centre. There are various study aids available including the computer suite at our Training Centre. Our starter package includes the cost of the Module 2 test and some of the books you’ll need to study.

Initial Driver CPC Training Courses In Pontefract, YorkshirePeriodic Driver CPC Training Courses In Pontefract, Yorkshire The second stage in the initial process is the Module 4 Practical Demonstration Test. This can be booked once you have passed the Module 2.

 

 

The test takes place at our on-site test centre using one of our vehicles and is conducted by a DVSA examiner. Some studying is required for this test but we have prepared several films and a useful Training Pack in order to prepare you for the test. Once you’ve passed the two CPC tests and your driving test, you’ll get a Driver Qualification Card (DQC) that is valid for 5 years.

You will then fall in to the Periodic Training category for the rest of your driving career.

Please be aware that you can hold a full lorry licence without a valid CPC. If this is the case, you cannot drive commercially. This is a common issue for drivers who obtained a lorry licence within the armed forces.

PERIODIC CPC

This is for drivers who passed their car test before 1st January 1997, already hold a DQC or passed a lorry test before 10th September 2009, or 10th September 2008 for bus drivers.
