More about Driver CPC Training
Getting your Driver CPC card
You will get your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) card when you have completed 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 is lost or stolen.
When will you receive card?
You will 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 will not receive your new Driver CPC card until nearer the time that your current card expires.
You can check online via your drivers portal when you will receive 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 check that your address is correct and change it if it is 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 does not have your address on it, so you do not have to get a new one if your address changes.
The photo and signature on your photo card driving licence will be used on your Driver CPC card.
Waiting for your Driver CPC card.
You can still drive professionally if you have completed your periodic training and you are waiting for your new Driver CPC card to arrive.
