New Theory Tests – C, D & CPC Candidates

Please note from 30th September 2014 the Category C & D Driver Theory Tests will replace Step 1 of the Driver CPC qualification process, formerly called the Driver CPC MCQ Test.

In order to professionally drive a Bus and/or a Truck you will need* to have a passed a Category D Bus and/or Category C Truck Driver Theory Test and the Driver CPC Case Study Test, before you can apply to the RSA for your Driver CPC Practical Test.

New exams have also been introduced for drivers who have already completed a Full Driver Theory Test in either Category C or D, and who wish to obtain a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence in both Categories. The Bus Module Test (BMT) or Truck Module Test (TMT) will supplement the full Category C or D Theory Test already obtained by the driver.

Please Note; only drivers who have passed a Full Category C (Truck) Theory Test or full Category D (Bus) Theory Test on or after September 30th, 2014, are eligible to sit a Bus or Truck Module Theory Test.

*If you hold a full Driver Licence issued before 10th September 2008 for Category D (Bus) and before 10th September 2009 for Category C (Truck) you have ‘Acquired Rights’ and are automatically entitled to a Driver CPC certification. See RSA CPC Unit for more details.
