Driver Qualification Card
When you pass your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC), you'll get a Driver Qualification Card (DQC).
If you have Driver CPC by 'acquired rights' you can use your vocational driving licence as proof of your Driver CPC until:
- 9 September 2013 for bus or coach drivers
If you have a photocard licence
You will get a DQC when you have completed your periodic training if you have a Great Britain (GB) photocard licence. It will be sent to the address on your driving licence.
If you have a paper licence
If you have a paper licence you will need to swap it for a photocard licence in order to get your DQC. This is because the DQC needs a photograph and signature, which are taken from the photocard record.
