Once you have a provisional licence you can book the CPC part 2 case studies test. It does not matter if you have yet to pass the Driver CPC part 1 theory test.
After you book the case studies test (part 2) you will need to take one of these driver licences with you:
Note: You may not have a photocard driving licence. In this case, take your paper driver's licence and a valid passport. Failing to have the right documents means they will cancel your test and you will lose the fee.
Seven different short story case studies make up part two of the test. They are based on real situations that you may come across while driving Lorries or buses for a living. But, you will work through each of the scenarios on a computer.
Note: You need to answer between 6 and 8 multiple-choice questions for each case study. The CPC part 2 test will last for 1 hour and 15 minutes. The pass mark is 40 out of 50 (at least 80%).
You will receive a letter at the test centre with the results. It will show the grade for the particular part of the case studies test that you took.
There will be a test pass reference number written on the letter. You need the number to book the Driver CPC part 4 practical demonstration test. The pass letter and reference number is valid for two (2) years.
Note: It is important to pass the Driver CPC part 4 practical demonstration test within the two year period. Failing to do so means you would need to pass the part 2 case studies test again.
Several things will happen if you fail the case study tests. A results letter provides feedback informing why you failed. You can go ahead and book another case studies test straight away. But, you must wait at least three (3) clear working days before you can resit the tests.
It is uncommon but the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency may cancel the test at short notice. In this case, you can apply for a refund to cover your out-of-pocket expenses.
