Initial Driver CPC: Case Study
The second step to gaining the Initial Driver CPC Qualification is the Case Studies test. Like the theory test, the Case Studies test is also carried out on a touch-screen computer.
The aim of the Case Studies is to not only test the knowledge of a candidate, but to test how they would put that knowledge into practice.
The candidate will be given 7 case studies that are based on real-life situations and scenarios that a driver is likely to come across in their working lives. This may be, for example, driving on icy conditions, or even being asked to carry out non-driving work when taking weekly rest.
Each case study or scenario will be accompanied with 6 to 8 questions. The pass mark is 40 out of 50.
Once you have passed each individual theory test, you will be told whether you have passed or failed in the form of a letter combined with a printed certificate.
Case Study tests are carried out by the Driving Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and taken at approved test centres. To book or find out where your nearest test centre is, call the DVSA on 0300 200 1122 or visit the GOV.UK website.
