As from 10 September 2008, the DSA has implemented the latest regulation from the EU regarding driver training for PCV drivers. It is called the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC), which will affect bus, coach and minibus drivers.
Under the new system, there are four modules:
- Theory test 85/100
- Hazard perception test 67/100
Module 2 (New):
- Case studies 38/50
This is a new element to the theory test. The driver is given case studies to read and then has to answer questions relating to the passage just read. In other words...another theory test. Fairly simple and straightforward.
- The practical drive. No change.
Module 4 (New):
- Practical demonstration test.
An enhanced 'tell me show me' questions with the examiner and vehicle.
