DVSA issue advice on repeating CPC Modules within a 5-year rolling period

Driver CPC What does it mean?

In November 2020, the DVSA issued guidance, emphasising that drivers should not repeat the same periodic CPC training module within a 5-year rolling period. If repetition occurred action may be taken against the driver and trainer.

For example:

If you complete a CPC module in 2017, you would not be eligible to complete this same module again until 2022.

However, you may have a reason to re-sit the course such as:

  • Completing refresher training
  • Driver infringements

These exceptions will be identified by 2 Start Training upon booking the course. Once successfully verified with JAUPT as to your reason, you will be allowed to attend the course as planned.

We can help you to avoid this.

If you complete all your modules with 2 Start then we can tell you, when you will need to complete more hours and what you have already done, ensuring no repetition of modules.

If you move from training company to training company to complete your hours and you attempt to re-sit a module within a rolling 5-year period, you may risk your hours being invalidated and fees paid lost.

If you attempt to sit an extra module (more then 35 hours) within a rolling 5-year period, your hours will show up as invalid and you will loose the fee and hours banked for that session.

We won’t be beaten on price.

We know that value for money is as important as great service, particularly in the current economic climate. We are so confident that our prices are competitive that in the unlikely event that you receive a lower written quotation from another company for the same Online or Classroom CPC training, we will match it!  You can be sure we won’t be compromising on training content or quality.
