About the Driver CPC Case Studies

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 and qualify for a full Driver CPC.

Driver CPC initial qualification part two – 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 Exam?

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 two 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.

  1. I can’t believe how HARD the questions are, on the case studies module 2…….there RIDICULOUS!!!, I’m NOT a trained mechanic, or work in the office of dvla, I was informed that it was a general understanding of the industry and basic knowledge on hgv’s???????? It’s anything BUT, the questions are just completely arranged to throw you, and there’s NO obvious choice on most of them…..it’s put me RITE off, I’m a working class man , not a FRIGGIN student with a master’s degree in mechanical engineering and EU regulations!!!!!

  2. Its very hard. The Questions are clearly made to trick you and throw you. As a lorry driver i do not need to know a lot of the stuff they say either. I can see why there is a shortage of drivers in the UK now.

  3. I know, I took mine last week I’m only 23, got 39/50 unfortunately but the questions are ridiculous and most of them I don’t even need to know. Got my retest in 1hour, 30mins goodluck me haha

  4. I past my driving test 36 years ago, wanted to try the Buses, Passed my THEORY, passed my HAZARD and failed this stupid test twice, do not see the point of this test, this silly rest is going to prevent me being a bus driver the questions are a Joke, just another way for the Goverment to get money out of us

  5. Lol i have failed it twice already, got 39/50 then 38/50, the test is bloody tough, got my 3rd attempt tommorow at 5.30pm, getting so sick of getting the train to Glasgow to sit this lol.

    The format is so hard, if theres 10 scenarios with 5 questions each, you can only afford 1 wrong answer per scenario which is more than likely to happen, i heard the pass rate is very low for it.

  6. Took mine today in fleetwood, I passed theory 93% passed Hazzard 77% and then failed the case studies getting 39/50 !! Bloody peed off to say the least, as most people have already said on here the questions are mostly rediculous and not to do with the actual job, definitely set up to trick and confuse you, I was told to read the scenario as all the answers were in there but I don’t agree as I found a lot of the questions asked had little to do with the scenarios, I’m due to have a retest next week hopefully..

  7. I done this test 3 weeks ago got 39/50 the test is a joke and a lot of the ? Don’t relate to the scenario going for a resit tommorow fingers crossed

  8. passed my theory and hazard no problem whatsoever.
    this test it’s getting on my nurves, failed it 3 times already 35/50, 39/50, 38/50.
    how can i revise anyone??

  9. omg! you guys are putting me off! have done module 1 no probs, waiting for dvsa to tell pearson i can book this test??? how can they not know i am eligible to take this test if ive done the other 2?? good luck people!

  10. Did my theory and hazard perception yesterday and passed with 95/100 & 85/200. Passed case study test today 48/50. Just have to apply the theory knowledge to the scenarios.

  11. Unbelievably hard questions. I sat the paper five times. Fortunately enough for me, I passed it last week. As most people have already said, read and read the scenario as many times as possible there is always a unique answer among the answers provided. Depending on what the question is asking, one’s answer should be based on fuel efficiency, comfort for the passengers and benefits to the organization.
    Good luck to you all.

  12. Daniel I have failed my CPC case study 4 time, past my theory 1st time Hazard Perception 1st time, this will b the 4th time I have failed my CPC, the questions are a joke can you remember any answers you can help me out with, av had 37/50 36/50 38/50 36/50 it’s a joke of a test and they never tell you what answers are wrong

  13. I got 39 out of 50 and ive got my retest on thursday the dvd does not in anyway relate to tge actual test i can pass the mock test every time with top marks, the actual cpc is completely diffrent surely this isnt allowed daylight robbery comes to mind

  14. I passed the practical test also passed the mod 2 theory test but couldn’t get past mod 4 how long does the practical and mod 2 theory last for?

  15. I’m going for my cpc bus driver module 2 study case. All the questions on the 2016 version of the LGV & PCV Study Case CPC DVD are on hgv vehicles. Am I studying the right questions for the test which is next week. Please help.

    • In the settings you will be able to change/view which vehicle type you’re studying for. Make sure yours is definitely set to PCV 🙂 best of luck with your test Parmjeet!

  16. i have done this 4 times now. getting total peed off with it. nowhere has any learning/revision stuff to help you along. some of the questions are not on an dvd or the official book I got from dvsa for cpc. FED UP. Costing money each time. Can drive the lorry but cant damn well earn until I have done this cpc. I rand dvsa to see about any learning material and they put me onto the publisher they use, and guess what??? only the book I have already got. some help this is. ive spent too much money to give up. why let you pass a practical on these trucks then restrict you for a bloody stupid 2nd theory as in cpc.
    anyway..good luck folks !

  17. I passed my theory and hazard perception, for the 5th time failed my case study I really don’t know what to do….but I’m not giving up. 37/50 34/50 37/50 37/50 37/50. Hopefully the last time will be the final time fingers crossed. Any tips?

  18. I passed my theory and hazard perception but unfortunately failed my case study for the 5th time today…..but I will not give up without a fight! 37/50 34/50 37/50 37/50 37/50. Hopefully last time will be the one fingers crossed. Any tips?

    • Hi Marte.I didnt pass 38[50 ..Was really stragle with some question.I hope i will pas second time ..I book apoitment 8.june ..
      Let me ask question..:There was question Lizz as a driver she see accident on the road and she hes practice certificate from first AID Where she can get it the certificate ? a- Blue Cross B- Red cross certificate company c- Local ambulance d – DVSA – DVSA -NI … i was strugle with that :-(And there was a more wuestion what i dont undersand the ansfer.

  21. I fail 3 times 36/50 39/50 39/50 Next one is tomorrow. The question is very hard and stupid. Good luck for everyone.

  22. I sat yesterday, 39 out of 50, some questions are very hard @ some of the answers are all right but you have to pick the most suitable, its hard

  23. It’s hard, I got 39 – 50 yesterday, gutted cause I changed 1 answer at the end which was a bad move, 1 question, a lassie had 2 drinks last night, what is the minimum time the alcohol stays in her body, 0-6hrs, 6-12hrs, 12-18hrs or 18-24hrs, I went for 18-24, I still don’t know the answer, some questions are so confusing with 2 of the answers possibly right

    • It’s all BS!! A typical pint consists of approx 5 units of alcohol therefore 2 pints equal 10 units of alcohol, the period of absorption and release is typical 3 hours per 5 unit pint… this means 2 pints or 10 units will absorb and release in 6 hours…. 😉

      • The official DVSA book on Driving Goods Vehicles says that Alcohol can stay in your system for 24-48 hours.
        I know it’s probably more likely 6 but it depends on the Alcohol content in the drink.%

        I would say 18-24 based on that but in reality know that it would be like no more than 7 hours

  24. Failed twice. 39/50 both times. Sit my third attempt on Saturday. Smells very fishy how many of us are failing with 39/50. See myself as quite an intelligent guy so this is really demoralising and upsetting,

    Third time lucky……

  25. I failed mine today, 39/50. reading the above seems to me that 39 is a favorable number for failure. I have re-booked for next week. Fingers and toes crossed.

  26. Passed cpc case studies 1st time 46/50 today with bit use of the driving test cpc revision. I find applying the theory knowledge of the pcv to the questions and answers helped alot also revise your brakes time and driving hours eu/british domestic this is shown in the revision section. I wish you all the best on your tests. Now for me to pass my cpc practical /pcv practical test. ☺

  27.

Now for me to pass my cpc practical and pc practical driving test.

  29. The questions in the case study are definitely related the theory part 1 .Swat,swat , and swat again till you know the part 1 (theory) inside out ,upside down every which way you can. I did this and past all first time (and I’m in my 60’s)
