CPC courses require 7 hours of contact time (plus breaks) and is ideally taught in 1-day. It is possible to split this into 2, half-day or evening sessions on consecutive days which must both be completed before the hours can be uploaded to DVSA for CPC credit.
It is an offence punishable by a fine of £1,000.00 each for both the Driver and Operator if a valid CPC card is not held
As with all CPC course there is no formal assessment but candidates must be present throughout the course
Upon completion of the course and once payment has been received a certificate of attendance will be emailed to the candidate and the hours uploaded to the DVSA website.
Candidates are encouraged to check their CPC status regularly by going to the DVSA website at https://www.gov.uk/check-your-driver-cpc-periodic-training-hours
DQC Cards are automatically issued by DVSA when all 35 hours of periodic training have been completed and there is less than a month before the current Driver’s Qualification Card (DQC) expires. These are issued without charge and posted direct to the address of record.
If your DQC has expired then you may drive without having a card on you but only once all your hours have been uploaded. Although it is an offence not to have your DQC with you the Police and DVSA inspectors will, normally, not penalise you if they can see you have completed yours hours recently.
DVSA advise that the card should be received within 2 weeks of being issued
