There are still a number of drivers on the road who have only passed part 1 and part 3 of their vocational licence, and although they may have Cat C, CE or D on the front of their licence, they passed their Vocational Test after the Sep 08 and Sep 09 deadlines and didn’t take Part 2 (Case Studies) and Part 4 (Practical Test). These drivers will not be in possession of a current CPC card and therefore be driving illegally which may result in a fine for the driver and the operator.

Drivers having trouble passing Part 2 (Case Study) and Part 4 of their vocational licence can register on an approved NVT programme and defer their Driver CPC qualification theory and practical tests. This scheme allows drivers to drive professionally for up to 12 months whilst they work towards their Driver CPC qualification, giving them an opportunity to “earn whilst they learn”.

By registering with us, we will enrol you on an approved course and register you with the NVT programme.

You will then be issued with a NVT Exemption Card which will act as your Driver CPC for up to a year. Your new employer will recognise this card, and will be able to offer you paid work whilst you are still studying for Part 2 and Part 4.

We run regular training sessions (normally 1 a month) where we cover the syllabus for the Part 2 Case Study Test.

At the end of the course you will have gained a recognised qualification and have the knowledge to pass your test

Earn whilst you Learn

Depending on whether you are a PCV or LGV driver will determine the course you will be registered for;

LGV – BTEC Award in Carry and Deliver Goods

PCV – BTEC Award in Knowledge for a Professional Bus or Coach Driver

Too good to be true?
