DVSA offer license holders quicker route to obtain 1st DQC card


Since the acquired rights deadline has passed DVSA has received requests from members of the public, who wish to return to vocational driving, asking how they can obtain a DQC. DVSA has considered these requests in the context of the government’s desire to support driver recruitment and reduce the potential burden to the industry and has decided that they will now allow drivers with a full licence to gain their first DQC via either periodic training or completion of modules two and four. For further information visit the dedicated Gov website: Driver CPC for Lorry, Bus & Coach drivers

This provision will apply to a driver’s first DQC only – any subsequent renewal will require periodic training to be completed. DVSA envisages this will have very limited impact on approved trainers and anticipate as more drivers enter the industry the demand for Driver CPC periodic training will ultimately be increased.

We can of course offer a full range of courses from achieving all 35 hours in 1 week to providing individual courses as required – call us if you would like further information, 7 hour course available regularly – 01453 826781

Drivers CPC Exemptions

Are you exempt?

The Driver Standards Agency (DSA) requires for certain drivers to hold a Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) to drive a lorry, bus or coach. It’s now important to know when you are exempt from this ruling to avoid any undue panic as the deadlines are now upon us for all coach/bus drivers (September 2013). All LGV drivers have until September 2014 to complete all 35 hours Drivers CPC training.

As demand for courses will increase rapidly, don’t delay in getting this training completed as we’re already seeing a big rise in demand and demand may reach a point where getting courses booked will lead to considerable lead times.
