Fuel Efficient and Safe Driving.

General CPC Driver Info

5. Getting your Driver CPC card

You’ll get your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) card when you’ve done 35 hours of periodic training. The card is sometimes called a ‘driver qualification card’ or ‘DQC’.

You must carry this card while driving a lorry, bus or coach professionally.

You can get a £50 fixed penalty for driving professionally without your card.

You must replace your card if it’s lost or stolen.

When you’ll be sent your card

You’ll get your new Driver CPC card straight away if you complete your training in the 12 months before your deadline.

If you complete your training more than a year early

You won’t get your new Driver CPC card until nearer the time your current card expires.

You can check when you’ll get your new card.

How the card is sent to you?

Your Driver CPC card will be sent automatically to the address on your driving licence. You need to change this address first if it’s wrong.

You only need to apply for your card if you did some of your periodic training in another EU country.

The Driver CPC card doesn’t have your address on it, so you don’t have to get a new one if your address changes.

The photo and signature on your photocard driving licence will be used on your Driver CPC card.

Waiting for your card

You can still drive professionally if you’ve done your periodic training and you’re waiting for your new Driver CPC card to arrive.

If your card doesn’t arrive

Contact the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) if you don’t receive your new card within 20 days of the date you’re due to get it.
