What is CPC training?

CPC is in place to encourage high standards of driving and to improve road safety, CPC stands for the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence, and is required by anyone who wants to drive a vehicle or professionally or as part of a hire and reward purposes. If you require CPC training, you will be required to complete both theory and practical elements of training.

Those who are required to complete CPC will need to undertake 35-hours of periodic training every 5 years to ensure they stay compliant, with a £1,000 fine available for those who do not have the correct CPC training. This means it is vital for drivers to remain up-to-date and to carry their qualifications with them at all times.

What is CPC Training?

CPC stands for The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence. Its main aim is to encourage high standards of driving and improve road safety. The qualification will involve both theory and practical elements. Every 5 years you must do 35 hours of training in order to keep it. There can be a £1,000 fine for driving professionally without your CPC so its vital you keep it up to date and carry it with you at all times.

Do I need CPC training?

You won’t need to complete CPC training if you simply enjoy driving for a hobby. This training is compulsory if you drive a lorry, bus or coach as the predominant part of your job. All drivers who are driving vehicles over 3.5 tonnes, or with 9 passenger seats or more are required to do the Periodic/Driver CPC (as well as the initial where applicable) – 35 hours of CPC training every five years. Have a look at our full list of exceptions here.

The DQC

A DQC is sent to new drivers address when they successfully pass the qualification. You must ensure you have it with you at all times to avoid penalties, even if you are travelling in an EU country.

If it’s lost, damaged or stolen, you need to report this to the DVLA as soon as possible and apply for a replacement. You can still drive if your card has been lost, however, if you still haven’t received it after 15 days you need to make further enquiries.

Brexit will not affect the Driver CPC legislation so all drivers must continue to conform to the regulations to avoid legal actions.

Which courses do we offer?

At 2 Start we offer a variety of courses to suit your needs. We offer qualifications for those that need full training and also the refresher course. We also offer courses which are more suitable depending on when you passed your car test. Have a look at our full range of courses here.

Your CPC theory test consists of 2 parts, which can be completed in any order. The Multiple-Choice test, which takes an hour and 55 minutes to complete and has 100 questions, requiring an 85% mark to pass. The Hazard Perception, containing 19 video clips, with 20 hazards for you to identify. This will need a 67% mark in order to pass. These tests must be completed within 2 years of each other.

The learner will also have to work through 7 case studies on a computer, with the test lasting an hour and 55 minutes, needing an 80% mark to pass. They are scenario-based questions that have been developed by industry experts and will be based on experiences a driver is likely to have. You will need to answer 6-8 multiple-choice questions on the 7 case studies. This will be valid for up to 2 years and you will need to complete your Driver CPC Module 4 practical demonstration in this time.

The final part of the assessment is an interactive test, where the driver needs to show various operations needed to operate a lorry, other than driving.
