Candidate will take the Module 4 test at DVSA centre.

The initial CPC Module 2 and Module 4 tests are very important for candidates who passed their driving test AFTER January 1997, as they will not legally be allowed to drive for hire or reward without them.

For candidates who passed their driving test BEFORE January 1997, the CPC module 2 & 4 is not necessary. They do however have to do 35 hours of Driver CPC classroom training. This is usually done with 5 x 7 hour classroom sessions at our centre.
