This proves that you hold Driver CPC, cost of DQC is included in your course with Traindrive.

You’ll get your DQC when you’ve completed either:

  • Your initial qualification
  • Your 35 hours of periodic training if you have a Great Britain photocard licence

The photograph and signature on your photocard licence will be used on your DQC. Your DQC will be sent to the address on your driving licence.

You must carry your DQC while driving a large goods vehicle or passenger-carrying vehicle professionally.
You will face a fine if you are found to be driving professionally without a card when you should have one. You can still drive professionally if you’ve completed or on your periodic training and you’re waiting for your DQC to arrive. Traindrive will supply you an attendance certificate for each 7 hour session you attend you should keep this with you. You should get your DQC within 20 days after completing either your initial qualification or your periodic training. If you don’t receive it, contact DVSA.
