Training for anybody who drives a vehicle weighing over 3.5 tonnes for hire or reward purposes.
When Do You Need Initial CPC (Module 4)?
Anybody who drives a vehicle weighing over 3.5T for “hire or reward” needs the CPC qualification alongside their vocational licence, or they can’t legally drive the vehicle. If a driver is stopped driving and does not have a CPC qualification they can be heavily fined!
If you obtained your LGV licence after 10th September 2009 you will need to obtain your CPC by completing the module 2 CPC Case Studies Test and the Module 4 Practical Demonstration Test.
When you have successfully completed your module 2 and module 4 tests you will receive your DCPC card. During the next 5 years you must complete 35 hours of periodic CPC training.
If you obtained your care licence before 1st January 1997 you should have Category C1 on your licence – and don’t need to do take module 2 and module 4 tests. However you still need to complete 35 hours of periodic CPC training to obtain your CPC card.
