Driver CPC – Who 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 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.
Driver CPC Initial Qualification consists of two parts,
Module 2 and Module 4.
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
