What is Driver CPC?

Driver CPC was introduced in 2008 for PCV Drivers and 2009 for Lorry Drivers. It meant that professional drivers were required to undertake ongoing training to increase Road Safety and Compliance within the transport industry.

Which CPC Training Course Do I Need?

There are two types of Driver CPC Training, these are known as Periodic and Initial Driver CPC Training. Periodic training is undertaken by anyone who is considered to have acquired rights (i.e. held a 7.5 tonne, class 2 or class 1 licence before 9th September 2009 or held a PCV licence before 9th September 2008) OR who has previously undertaken the Initial CPC and now requires the 35 hours (five days) Periodic Training every five years thereafter.

If you passed your car test before January 1997 this generally entitled you to drive 7.5-tonne vehicles (Cat C1). Candidates with a C1 entitlement pre 9th September 2009 attend Periodic Training on acquired rights, even though they have never passed a vocational driving test as the right to drive 7.5-tonne vehicles counts as a vocational entitlement.

If a driver holds a vocational licence for buses and coaches as well as lorries, they only need to do one set of periodic training.

Enterprise offers 6 informative modules designed to give candidates a thorough understanding of the role and responsibilities of the professional driver.

What is Initial CPC?

If you did not hold a lorry entitlement (C1, C, or C + E) on your licence on 9th September 2009, and you are new to driving a vehicle above 3.5 tonnes GVW you must take the Initial CPC (a two-part test known as Module 2 and Module 4) as opposed to undertaking Periodic CPC training. Or if you did not hold a bus entitlement (D1, D or D+E) on your licence on 9th September 2008, you must take the Initial CPC.

Driver CPC Card

The Driver Qualification Card

The Driver Qualification Card is sometimes called a DQC and often just the Driver CPC Card or Driver Card. The DQC is issued automatically by DVSA upon completing 35 hours of Periodic CPC Training or passing Initial CPC Module 4.

Driver Qualification Card Following Periodic CPC Training

Accredited trainers must upload the Periodic Training Hours within 5 working days of the training course ending. Once DVSA’s computer sees that a candidate has completed 35 hours of training, it automatically sends out a DQC. It will use the candidate address details it has on file highlighting the need for candidates to notify DVLA promptly upon moving house. It is not possible for a training organisation to arrange for the driver card to be delivered to an alternative address.

Driver Qualification Card Following Initial CPC Training

Module 4 test results are uploaded to DVSA’s computer by the examiner. This automatically triggers the issuing of a DQC, provided the candidate has previously obtained a vocational entitlement. If the candidate has completed the initial CPC training in advance of passing a Module 3b (On Road Driving) test, the driver card will not be issued until the Module 3b is passed.
