Our aim is to help you navigate through the sometimes complicated process of becoming a professional HGV driver.

Why Do I Have To Do The Driver CPC?
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.

Completing your Module 2 & 4

The CPC Module 4 test is the very last thing to do after you have completed all other training. Once you have passed this you will be issued your CPC Card. You will need to carry this card every time you want to drive for financial gain or you could face a fine of up to £1000. Before you take the CPC Module 4 you must have completed your CPC module 2 (Case Studies) theory test.
We offer training for Module 2 via our online portal, teaching you all you need to prepare you for your test. Module 4 training is designed to teach you what you can expect to find in the real world. You can only do the Module 4 training once you have passed your C1 or your C licence. If you are looking to get your CPC straight after you pass you will need to keep your driving licence and send it off after you have passed your CPC. You must have your driving licence on you in order to take the test.
The course we offer is a one-day practical course, including test, that will give students the chance to discuss key issues relating to LGV safety and demonstrate the practical skills required of professional LGV drivers, as per standards set by the DVSA. Completion of this course will also prepare candidates to take the Module 4 Initial Driver CPC test.
This course covers, but is not limited to, the following areas:
