The initial driver CPC Case Studies Test Part 2 must be passed before taking the practical demonstration test and covers seven real-life scenarios which require some revision and practise if you hope to pass!
The CPC Case Studies Test costs £23 and you can sit this test even if you haven't yet passed the Driver CPC Part 1 Theory Test.
About the Driver CPC Case Studies Test Part 2
If you don’t want to drive for a living, the Case Studies Test is not compulsory. However, you must take it if you want to drive professionally as an HGV, LGV, or PCV driver and qualify for a full Driver CPC.
Driver CPC initial qualification Part 2 – Case Studies
Similar to your Theory Test, the Case Studies Test is carried out on a computer and will take about one and a half hours to complete.
The test will be made up of seven case studies, each one with six to eight questions. Each of the case studies will be based on real-life scenarios that you are likely to come across in your everyday working life.
What is the pass mark for the Driver CPC Case Studies?
The maximum score you can achieve is 50 and the pass mark is 40.
Do I need to sit the Driver CPC Case Studies Test?
If you already hold a Driver CPC for one vehicle category (for example PCV) and you wish to gain the Driver CPC in another category, you will need to take a Part Two Case Study conversion test.
This will consist of 10 case studies with a total of 50 questions.
To book the Part 2 Case Study conversion test you will need to contact the DVSA on 0300 200 1166 and select the Theory Test option.
Once you are through to an operator and have explained you would like to book a conversion test they will check on their bookings database if the information required is already held for your licence.
If it is not they will put you through to the DVLA where you will need to request an Entitlement Check.
