Be aged 18 or over

Drivers who passed their lorry tests after 2009 must have a driver cpc. Those who already held it previously to 2009 must complete periodic training for their driver cpc which is 35 hours of training every 5 years. So the 1st block of 35 hours had to be done by 2014, the next block is 2019 and so on. This is only for those who held their lorry licence prior to 2009. For those sitting after 2009 they have to complete a module 2 – driver cpc case studies which they do along with their theory and hazard perception then module 4 which is as above in the LGV training tab. Their 5 year block starts from the pass date of their module 4.
