7. Training in other EU countries

You need to apply for your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) card in writing if you have a UK driving licence and took some of your periodic training in another EU country.

What you need to send

You need to include:
• your UK driving licence number
• your phone number
• the dates you lived abroad and your address while there
• the names and addresses of your employers for that time, or your tax reference or national insurance number for the countries you worked in
• a £25 fee to add training taken abroad to your Driver CPC card

You must include the original documents – photocopies aren’t accepted.

Where to send the documents?

Send all the documents to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).

Documents that aren’t in English

You need to send documents with an English translation on headed paper from an educational organisation or embassy.

8. If you have a licence from other countries

You can get a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) card if you’ve done the final 7 hours of your periodic training in the UK.

You must also live or work in the UK and have a driving licence from any of these countries:
• an EU country
• Gibraltar
• Guernsey
• Iceland
• Isle of Man
• Jersey
• Liechtenstein
• Norway
• Switzerland

To apply, send an email to the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) asking for form DQC1.

From then on, after doing 35 hours of periodic training in the UK, you’ll get your Driver CPC qualification for 5 years.

Exchanging your driving licence for a UK licence

You can get a UK Driver CPC card if you exchange your non-UK country or EU member state driving licence for a UK licence.

Your Driver CPC qualification will still last until the date it was due to run out when you first got it.

When you exchange your licence, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) will tell DVSA for you.

If you already have a Driver CPC card

You’ll need to send your Driver CPC card to DVSA if you already have one. You’ll need to include your driving licence number in a short letter.
