What is Driver CPC Periodic Training? And which CPC Training is right for you?
All professional bus, coach and lorry working drivers must hold a valid Driver CPC Driver Qualification Card (DQC).
There are two types of Driver CPC Training:
- Driver CPC Periodic Training is for existing professional drivers who already have a DQC Card and drive a lorry, bus or coach. We provide this training.
- Driver CPC Initial Training is for new professional drivers who want to drive a lorry, bus or coach and do not already have a DQC Card. We do not provide Initial CPC Traning. There is more information about this type of CPC Training further down this page.
Existing Professional Drivers and those who already have a Driver Qualification Card 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.
If you already have a PCV licence and passed your test before Sep 2008, or if you have an LGV (aka HGV) licence and you passed your test before Sep 2009, or if you have a C1 category and passed before 1997 then Periodic Driver CPC Training is the right training for you.
Westway CT offers Periodic Driver CPC Training only; specifically for existing DQC holders 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 book a 7-hour course each year, or complete all 35 hours over 5 days. It’s entirely up to you.
If you are unsure as to whether you need to take part in Driver CPC Periodic Training, you can check if you have any recorded hours if you click here. If this tool is not helpful, please feel free to speak to us by using the Contact Form or call 020 8964 4928 (option 4).

If you can’t find a date that suits you, please give us a call on 020 8964 4928 (option 4) as we can often organise dates around your specific needs. Now and then we will change the courses around so that we run a different course on a different day of the week. See the Course codes.
Discounts for larger groups
If you have a group of people who need to take part in Periodic Driver CPC Training, you would like to book for more than one trainee at a time, and you would prefer that courses can be held at your premises, please let us know. In such cases, we will bring the necessary equipment required. Prices for this will vary depending on distance, travel and number of delegates attending.
Our Training Centre, based in West London, is fully equipped for all your training needs. We can also travel to your premises for your convenience; in such cases, we will bring the necessary equipment required for training. Prices for this may vary depending on distance, travel and number of delegates.
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. 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 provide this training for Free through our Drive Time Project.
