What is Driver CPC?
The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) is a qualification that Lorry drivers (LGV/HGV) need to hold in addition to their driving licence if they are working for hire or reward.
Existing LGV / HGV licence holders will be required to undertake 35 hours of Periodic Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) training in every 5 years.
All new LGV drivers will need to undertake Driver CPC before they can drive vocationally.
Drivers who passed their B licence (car) before January 1997 can choose to undertake Periodic CPC or Initial CPC.
Drivers who passed their B licence (car) after January 1997 do not have the choice, they must undertake Initial Driver CPC.

Initial Driver CPC
Initial CPC is made up of 2 elements, a theory test and a practical test (much like the LGV licence).
The Driver CPC Case Study Test (MODULE 2)
This will test your knowledge by presenting a series of practical scenarios that you may meet in your work and then asks questions to test your understanding. The case study testing method is described in section four of the Official DSA Guide to Driver CPC (ISBN 978-0-11-553001-2)
The Driver CPC Practical Demonstration Test (MODULE 4)
This will test your knowledge of your vehicle and how it should be operated safely and efficiently. The test will be conducted using the vehicle you present for the test. You will be asked questions in order to demonstrate to the examiner:
- What must be done before the vehicle leaves the depot to make sure that the journey is safe
- That your driving complies with all the relevant regulations
- That your driving is carried out in an eco-efficient and environmentally-aware way. The Practical Demonstration test is in section five of the official DSA guide to Driver CPC.
