Drivers CPC – HGV, PSV, PCV - Details

What must a driver do?

Each DQC is valid for five years from the date of issue. This means that – unlike the 2014 deadline set when Driver CPC was introduced – each driver’s renewal date is unique to them.

All drivers must undertake 35 hours’ periodic training before the end of the five years following the issue date on their DQC. If the training is not undertaken during that time, they will not be permitted to drive professionally until they have completed their 35 hours.

The best way to ensure that a DQC doesn’t lapse is to carry out at least one day’s mandatory periodic training every year.

The consequences

If a driver is caught driving commercially without their Driver Qualification Card:

  • Both driver and operator face fines of up to £1000
  • Driver suspended from driving commercially until training is completed
  • Possible reduction in driving workforce, and operations adversely affected
  • If operations are affected, your reputation with customers could be damaged
  • If convicted, operator’s OCRS rating will drop to red
  • Likely increase in insurance premiums
