Initial Driver CPC

LGV Drivers

If you are a new driver taking a test in either Category C1 or C after the 10th September 2009 you will need to pass all 4 modules below to be able to drive commercially. All drivers that already hold these licences will have this qualification under “Grandfathers Rights”, however you will still need to do your periodic training.

To become a driver and successfully gain the INITIAL DRIVER CPC a new driver must pass the following 4 modules:

  1. Theory and Hazard Awareness test
  2. Case study questions and answers
  3. Practical Driving Test
  4. Practical Demonstration Test.  The candidate will be asked questions about certain topics such as load restraints and asked to demonstrate their knowledge e.g. using a ratchet strap you must show the examiner how it works and how they would use it to secure a load.


We provide all the training and material to make gaining your Initial Driver CPC as easy and cost effective as possible.
