About Periodic Driver CPC Training

All professional drivers that require the Driver CPC must ‘Stay Qualified’ by completing the Periodic Driver CPC.

Periodic Driver Training is where a driver must complete 35 hours of approved training every 5 years. The 5 year expiry period is indicated on the Driver CPC Qualification Card (DQC).

When an individual completes their 35 hours of Periodic Driver Training within the 5 years, DVSA will then issue a new Driver CPC Qualification Card, adding 5 years onto the previous expiry date.

Once the driver is in their last 5 years, they must then start their next 35 hours of Periodic Driver Training.


PLEASE NOTE: As of 1st January 2024, you can no longer duplicate subjects.
