What is Driver CPC?

Driver Certificate of Professional Competence
Commonly referred to as Driver CPC or DCPC for short, it is a qualification required by law for all professional HGV and PCV drivers, with some exemptions. The rules apply to drivers of vehicle categories C1, C, C+E, D1, D and D+E.
Driver Qualification Card (DQC)
The licence-style photocard that is issued to confirm successful completion of the Driver CPC training.

Backline have been delivering Driver CPC training since 2013. We registered as a JAUPT approved consortium member to enable us to deliver training to the 300+ HGV drivers that we employ.

We now also offer Forklift, HIAB, First Aid and ADR training.

 

What CPC route do I need to take?

 

Initial Driver CPC – For the newly qualified

Passing your LGV (Cat C1, C, CE) test after September 2009 and you do not have Acquired Rights (Grandad rights) on your licence meaning you passed your car test (Cat B) after the 1stJanuary 1997 means you would need to do Module 2 & 4, in that order.

If this applies to you, we can help and organise Mod 4 training but Mod 2 is done by yourself.

 

Mod 2 is an online exam at a DVLA site booked through the following link  https://www.gov.uk/book-theory-test

 

Best book to revise for the Mod 2 exams is ‘The Highway Code 2022 & Theory Test Practise Questions for LGV – Includes 200 interactive HGV questions & answers’

Mod 4 can generally be booked through your LGV driver training provider, feel free to contact Backline Training who can help and organise this training for you.

Driver CPC – For those that have held their licence for a while

If you passed your LGV (Cat C1, C, CE) on or before the 9thSeptember 2009 then you can do 35 hours of periodic training to obtain you DQC (Driver Qualification Card). If you passed after this date and have acquired rights (Cat B passed before the 1stJanuary 1997) on your licence you can still do the 35 hours training.

 

Periodic training, for the most, is classroom based but did you know that you can get CPC on other courses like ADR, MHE (Mechanical Handling Equipment like MOFFETT, FKLT CB and HIAB) and First Aid, course we provide.

 

Keep in mind – You need to complete the full 35 hours or Mod 2 & 4 training before you can drive for hire or reward. You can also drive the day after completing your 35 hours training, as long as it has been uploaded, as you’ll have an ‘application in place’ Ideal whilst waiting for your DQC to arrive.
