Module 4 – Driver CPC practical demonstration test (this takes 30 minutes – you will need to show you can keep your vehicle safe and secure, eg loading your vehicle safely)
The initial CPC is a practical, ‘show me’, ‘tell me’ test conducted at a DSA driving test centre by an examiner, the test is 20-30 minutes long and covers questions in the following areas; Daily walk-around checks, the ability to prevent physical risk, loading and the security of loads, keeping the vehicle secure, emergency procedures, loaded vehicle dynamics, border crossings, and security procedures. This encompasses a wide range of situations typically encountered by drivers and is covered in full by our instructors. CPC for both Passenger Vehicles and Goods Vehicles can be covered by 2 Start. ?

Very helpful, nice friendly people to deal with.
