Driver CPC Syllabus - Initial Licence Qualification

The Driver & Vehicle Agency (DVA) Modular Tests

Driver CPC Initial Licence Qualification involves 4 hours of theory testing and 2 hours of practical testing

Our Summary of the Initial Qualification Syllabus

The Driver & Vehicle Agency (DVA) are introducing modular tests so that drivers can obtain their Driving Certificate and Driver CPC at the same time. The CPC syllabus covers the additional knowledge a professional driver needs to have; it is not just about practical driving skills.

The Theory test is in 3 parts:

  • Module 1a - Certificate acquisition - 100 multiple choice questions;
  • Module 1b - Certificate acquisition - 19 hazard perception clips;
  • Module 2 - Initial driver CPC - 3 case studies.
The 'Case studies' will be designed to suit the profile of the candidate and DVA is meeting both sectors to help develop the new tests.

DVA envisages that the questions would be of the format where a situation or scenario was defined for the driver, and they are then asked questions relating to this situation.

Case studies wherever possible will use diagrams, pictures and graphics.

The test will be delivered from existing theory test centres and will be screen-based, like the current theory test for driving licence acquisition.

The Practical test is in 2 parts:

  • Module 3 - Certificate acquisition - 1.5 hours of on-road practical testing;
  • Module 4 - Initial driver CPC - 0.5 hours of practical 'show me, tell me' test using a vehicle.
"The increase in theory test questions and hazard perception clips, and subsequent splitting of the test, will apply to both PCV and LGV test candidates and was introduced at the end of November 2008" - For more detail download here under Business Link Section
Any Driver or Vehicle used on the Business of any of the above in any form from the School teacher taking little Nikki home with a cut finger or the church warden taking the Alter Cloth to the dry cleaners - to the heavy goods vehicle on its way with 20 tonnes of white goods - All are owed a Duty of Care!

This means all must have "Business Insurance" of one type or another for all vehicles used on any business of that company or organisation. You must also include them on your Vehicle Driver Checklist!
