What does the Initial Driver CPC qualification involve?
LGV (Lorry) Drivers - If you passed your car driving test on 1st January 1997 or later and your LGV test after 10th September 2009 you will have to pass the Driver CPC Initial Qualification to gain a Drivers Qualification Card (DQC.)
PCV (Bus/ Coach) Drivers - If you passed your car driving test on 1st January 1997 or later and your LGV test after 10th September 2008 you will have to pass the Driver CPC Initial Qualification to gain a DQC.
For many newly qualified drivers, if you have not passed the Initial Qualification (and therefore not gained a DQC), where required, you are not permitted to undertake any Periodic Driver CPC training. Novadata cannot accept responsibility if you attend a Driver CPC training course (or part of) and it is subsequently discovered that the training hours cannot be uploaded as you have not gained a DQC via the Initial Qualification. In this event no refund will be given in this event (as per our Terms and Conditions of Business see Point 5, document enclosed).There are four parts of the Initial Driver CPC which many professional drivers will need to take before they can obtain a Driver Qualification Card, also known as a Driver CPC Card.
