Are You Driving Illegally?
Figures recently produced by the Driving Standards Agency show that from the 33,214 drivers whom passed their module 3 (C or C1) LGV test only 9,966 followed through to completing the module 4 to obtain their DQC.
Although there are certain exemptions in place, the majority of drivers whom achieved their LGV licence since September 2009 should also have achieved the Initial Driver CPC.
Records show that 17,000 drivers who passed since September 2009 could be driving illegally. VOSA has admitted that they have not yet prosecuted a driver for not having a DQC, however failing to comply with these regulations could mean a fine of £1000.00 for companies and £240.00 for Drivers, per offence.
