What is Driver CPC Periodic Training?
All professional bus, coach and lorry working drivers must hold a valid Driver CPC Driver Qualification Card (DQC).
Existing Professional Drivers must complete 35 hours of Periodic Driver CPC Training in 5-yearly cycles consistent with CPC renewal. This training must continue until such time that this person no longer wishes to drive category C or D vehicles professionally.
Westway CT offers Periodic Driver CPC Training specifically for existing Driver CPC cardholders who need to participate in all, or part, of the 35 hours of training, to comply with the rules of the five-yearly renewal for refresher training.
You have the flexibility as to how you take your 35 hours training, provided this training occurs in blocks of at least seven hours at one time. You can sit a 7-hour course each year, or complete all 35 hours over 5 days. It’s entirely up to you.

What is Driver CPC Initial Training?
The Driver CPC Initial Qualification is for new professional drivers who want to drive a lorry, bus or coach. In order to drive professionally new drivers will need to pass four tests:
Module 1 – Theory Test (includes multiple-choice and hazard perception tests)
Module 2 – Driver CPC Case Studies test
Module 3 – Practical Driving Test
Module 4 – Driver CPC Practical Test
We don’t provide Driver CPC Initial Training, but we do offer PCV D1 Bus Driver Training and depending on where you live and your income, we can sometimes offer this training for Free through our Drive Time Project.
