Why us? Training for Initial Driver CPC, Module 4…
Focus Driver Training Ltd can facilitate your training for your module 4 test, and present you for your module 4 test.
The training can be split over two days, or carried out all in one day. We provide you with a range of resources to help you prepare for your module 4 test prior to the day of your training/test. If carrying out your training in one day, you will typically arrive at 09:30 for a 09:35 start time, spend 2.5 hours going through an interactive presentation which covers the 5 areas of the module 4 test, and gain some experience using the load restraint equipment. Prior to your test you will spend an hour familiarising with the lorry used for your module 4 test, and then attend your test. Your training/test will finish between 14:35-15:50 depending on your test slot time.
At the end of your test the examiner will let you know your result, and assuming you pass will present you with your pass certificate allowing you to drive professionally from that point. Your DQC will arrive by post to your home address with 10-14 days.

5 Steps to Gain Your CPC
Decide if you require Initial Driver CPC or Periodic. If you passed your car test before Jan 97 or your LGV test prior to Sept 09th 2009 you can take either Initial or Periodic, depending on what you prefer. However, if you passed your car or lorry test after these respective dates, you will need to take and pass modules 2 and 4, i.e. Initial Driver CPC.
f you have opted for module 2 and 4 and you have grandfather rights, i.e. passed your car test prior to 97 or your LGV test prior to 09th Sept 2009, you will need to first request authorisation to complete modules 2 and 4 by calling the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency). Their telephone number is 0300 200 1188.
To gain authorisation to complete modules 2 and 4 can take up to ten days, and as soon as you have authorisation you will be able to book your module 2 case studies test.
If you do not have grandfather rights you will be able to book your module 2 case study theory test online directly through the DVSA, by using the following link
Step three is to book your module 2 case studies test and pass the test. If you have grandfather rights you will need to speak to an adviser on the telephone to book your module 2 case studies test, if you do not have grandfather rights you will be able to book your module 2 test direct using the following link
We can provide you with the software to prepare for the module 2 case study theory test.
Step four is to book your module 4 training with us, we will book and manage your module 4 test for you. If you have grandfather rights we will need to speak to an adviser on the telephone to book your module 4 test, if you do not have grandfather rights we will be able to book your module 4 test directly using the test booking system.
We will provide you with a range of resources by email or post to help you prepare for your module 4 test, and also facilitate your practical training for your module 4 test. This training can be split over two days (not necessarily consecutive) or carried out all in one day. Part of the training consists of an interactive presentation and training / familiarisation with the load restraint equipment, and the remainder of the training is carried out using our training vehicle.
After this you will be presented for your module 4 test which is a 30 minute test using our training vehicle, where you will answer 5 questions that the examiner will ask you. One question from each of the areas, of which there are five.
You are now qualified to drive professionally for the next 5 years, during which time you will need to accumulate 35 hours of periodic training in order to keep driving beyond your initial 5 year qualification period.
Your DQC (Driver Qualification Card) that you will obtain by virtue of completing modules 2 and 4 will restrict you to the particular module 4 test that you passed, i.e. Module 4 for LGV or Module 4 for PCV. However, the DQC that you will receive upon completion of your 35 hours of Periodic training will not be restricted to either LGV or PCV. Therefore if you hold both an LGV licence and PCV licence you will be able to professionally drive both lorries and buses/coaches, upon completion of your 35 hour of Periodic CPC training.
