Driver CPC License - Certificate of Professional Competence

driver cpc certificate of professional competence courses in pontefract, yorkshire


CPC Driver Certificate of Professional Competence 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 driver qualification card you need depends on the type of driving licence you currently hold.


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

There are two stages to obtaining a driver CPC qualification 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.

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 driver CPC tests and your driving test, you’ll get a Driver Qualification Card (DQC) or driver certificate 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 Licence. 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.


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