Drivers who hold both LGV and PCV licences will only have to complete one Driver CPC Periodic Training. (ie 35 hours in 5 years will cover both)

There are exceptions, follow this link for more information: www.transportoffice.gov.uk/cpc

All Drivers will need to complete a minimum of 35 hours of periodic training within every 5 year period. The training requires drivers to attend training courses, but no tests or exams will be taken.

The DVSA announced that with effect from 29th August 2020, no modules can be repeated, without good reason, for example Dangerous Goods Driving.

The DVSA could revoke your CPC card if they find you have repeated modules. You can check this on the DVSA website.
