DRIVER CERTIFICATE OF PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCE
The Difference Between Initial & Periodic CPC Training
If you wish to drive a large goods vehicle on a professional basis in Britain and Northern Ireland you must hold a valid Driver Qualification Card (DQC) which is more commonly referred to as a driver CPC card.
To obtain this card, new drivers must complete the initial Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) Training.
Then, to renew the qualification, drivers must follow their initial training with Periodic Driver CPC Training.
Initial Driver CPC
You must pass the part 2 and part 4 tests to gain your driver qualification card
Part 2 is a theory-based case study test which must be passed before the part 4 test can be taken
Part 4 is a practical assessment of associated knowledge known as a ‘demonstration test’ in which the driver must demonstrate an understanding of vehicle-related issues, like daily inspection, safety, and load restraints
Periodic Driver CPC
The Driver CPC Periodic Training follows Initial Driver CPC Training. Every driver of Large Goods Vehicles must complete 35 hours of Driver CPC Training over a five-year period
Failure to complete the required hours in the five-year period results in suspension of the driver’s entitlement to drive large goods vehicles on a proffesional basis until the training hours have been completed.
