The Driver Certificate of Professional Competence has been introduced to the UK through EU Directive 2009/59.

It has been introduced to improve the skills and knowledge of professional drivers.

Driver CPC – Do you needs it?
If you passed your car test AFTER January 1997, and will be using your licence for work, you will need to take the Driver CPC. This is as a result of a change in legislation which took place in September 2009. If you passed your CAR test BEFORE January 1997, and have a C1 or 7.5 ton entitlement on your licence, you do NOT need to take the Driver CPC Initial Qualification. Please see the section relating to Periodic Training.
Driver CPC Initial Qualification
Driver CPC Initial Qualification consists of two parts,
Module 2 and Module 4.
Module 2 is a case study test which is conducted at the Theory Test Centre. It lasts approximately 30 minutes. This is usually conducted around the same time that you take your theory tests.
Module 4 is a practical demonstration test which lasts approximately 30 minutes. It involves walking around a stationary vehicle with the examiner and demonstrating that you can complete several crucial checks. This is usually conducted after you have passed your practical test or during your training week.

Compulsory Driver CPC training.
Since 10th September 2014, any driver who obtained their LGV licence before September 2009 who wants to drive for a living needs to complete Periodic Training.
Any driver who obtained their LGV licence AFTER September 2009 has 5 years to complete 35 hours periodic training from the date of completion of the Driver CPC Initial Qualification.
- You need to complete 5 modules, each 7 hours long, across any 5 days.
- That’s 35 hours-
If you haven’t completed 35 hours’ Periodic Training and registered it with the DVSA by the 5 year deadline date indicated on your Driver Qualification Card, you won’t be able to legally earn money from driving Heavy Goods Vehicles. ( hire or reward)
