Driver CPC part 4 test: changes
Issued on behalf of DVSA:
Over the last few months, we’ve been reviewing the Driver CPC part 4 (practical safety demonstration) test for lorry, bus and coach drivers who are doing their initial qualification.
Please be aware this article is only applicable to GB drivers. DVA have not as yet changed their DCPC part 4 questions and are not considering external assessors route at this time.
New Centre and Course Application Forms
From 9.30am tomorrow the new centre and course application forms will be available at GOV.UK. These will be effective from 1st January 2017 but can be used as of 15th November 2016.
Issuing Driver Qualification Cards
DVSA have asked us to distribute guidance they have produced about a change of process to DQC validity dates as follows:
DVSA has recently amended the Driver CPC recording and evidencing system so that it will only issue drivers with a new card at the time that they need to receive it.
Drivers who complete their periodic training early in the cycle will no longer receive a DQC with an expiry date of more than 5 years.
Any periodic training they’ve already recorded in their current cycle won’t be affected, so they won’t lose their hours.
Website Issue - Incorrect Date
It has been brought to our attention that dates are not being recorded correctly on the receipt which is produced following an upload of training dates. Please be assured that the date you have entered will be displaying in our records correctly but the receipt will show the day before. This has been reported to our web developers and will be resolved as soon as possible.
