After a bit of research, I ended up choosing Wallace and I'm glad I did. My first phone call was very informative and I had only to choose when to start the training. Got all the books from them, studied everything and passed my theory test first time. Went to do some practical training with Gerry the instructor and got my skills polished to a very high standard. Anticipate, not react. The best advice I could ever get. Passed my practical first time and also the following CPC theory and practical tests. If someone asks me where to go for a truck licence, my answer is 1000 times Wallace School of Transport. They care for you as if you were family. That counts more than anything.Mr Augusto Barale
Initial Driver CPC Module 2&4
By law, before working as a professional goods vehicle driver, you need a Driver Qualification Card
Failure to hold or carry the card when at work will result in a fine.
Initial Driver CPC is taken in two parts:
Case Study Theory Test (Module 2)
Practical Demonstration Test (Module 4)
If you passed a UK car test before January 1997 you may have LGV C1 by Acquired Rights (Grandfather Rights) so your Driver CPC (Certificate of Competance) can be gained by attending our 35 hours Driver CPC Periodic Training. Read More...
Driver Qualification Cards are valid for 5 years and within that time to renew the card you must complete 35 hours Periodic Training. Click here for more details and prices - choose the 35hrs training TAB.
CPC Case Study Theory Test (Module 2) - £23
The test consists of 6 to 8 Case Studies based on real life situations.
You will be asked 50 questions and you need 40 or more correct answers to pass.

Our example of an HGV/LGV Driver CPC Case Study Question shows a question about Economical Driving.
Our Case Study learning material will give you an idea of the DVSA questions but they are not the exact questions you'll get on the date of your Module 2 test. The actual questions are a secret. DVSA deliberate don't reveal the real questions as they want you have an understanding of true life situations and to use your knowledge (gained from the explanations on the learning material and from the book featured below) to be fully prepared both for their test and for real life.
