THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE INITIAL AND PERIODIC DRIVER CPC
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), This 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.
To renew the qualification, drivers must follow their initial training with Periodic Driver CPC Training.
INITIAL DRIVER CPC
You must pass module 2 and module 4 tests to gain your driver qualification card.
Module 2 is a theory-based case study test that must be passed before the module 4 test can be taken.
Module 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.
The initial driver CPC is valid for a period of 5 years
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 will result in the suspension of the driver’s entitlement to drive large goods vehicles on a professional basis.
Periodic Driver CPC is overseen by the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT), a non-for-profit company that was founded to enable the Competent Authorities to introduce a system for processing centre and courses for the periodic training element of ‘The Vehicle Drivers (Certificate of Professional Competence)
