The Initial Qualification

The Initial Qualification (Module 2 + 4) must be achieved by new LGV and PCV drivers along with their vocational licence to enable them to use their licence professionally.

The Module 2 test is made up of case studies that candidates work through on a computer. The case studies are short stories based on situations that drivers are likely to come across during their working life. We provide revision material through an online portal to revise for the exam and then book the test at the candidates local DSA Theory Test Centre.

The CPC Module 4 has been introduced to allow new entrants to confirm they can carry out a number of operations, other than driving such as crucial safety checks on the vehicle. The module 4 test is interactive and candidates will be expected to explain and demonstrate answers using a suitable LGV or PCV vehicle.

As an approved practical testing centre, we train and test at our facility, providing candidates with the relevant revision material and training to ensure they are fully prepared for test.

Periodic Training

The Driver CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) is for drivers of passenger carrying vehicles (PCV) and drivers of large goods vehicles (LGV) who drive professionally throughout the UK and the rest of Europe. It is a legal requirement that involves all professional drivers undertaking 35 hours of Periodic Training every 5 years. Qualification is by attendance so there are no tests or exams to take at the end of the course.

35 hours of training every 5 years must be attended by all professional drivers.


“What is CPC?” is one of our most frequently asked questions. Here, we explain what Driver CPC courses are, why you need CPC training, what is involved and whether you need Initial or Periodic Driver CPC training. Our aim is to help you navigate through the sometimes complicated process of becoming a professional HGV driver. If you’d prefer to discuss your CPC driver training questions with one of our helpful advisers, please call us now; we’d be more than happy to talk it through.
Back in September 2009, the Government passed the Driver CPC legislation to ensure that all professional Drivers would be subject to the same ongoing requirement for retraining. Since then, the Driver CPC has been keeping HGV Drivers’ skills at the high level required by the role through ongoing ‘Periodic’ training on a range of subjects which are relevant to the life of a professional HGV Driver.Some Drivers are not affected by the Driver CPC legislation; these include people who drive for emergency services (e.g. ambulance driver), the military, people who drive in the course of other duties (e.g. scaffolders) and people using vehicles purely for personal use (e.g horsebox owners moving their own horses.) Safe to say, most people DO fall under these rules, so if you think you’re exempt for any reason you should seek advice before driving.
Because there is no fixed price for CPC training, our CPC training prices will depend on your location and CPC needs. Easy As HGV has been offering CPC driver training since 2008, so we offer the best rates, which means you don’t need to shop around. Whether you need express CPC training or would rather train at an easier pace, we can offer you a course to suit you. We are available to chat through the options, so please call for an instant price.
