You can book the part 2 case studies test of the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) as soon as you’ve got your provisional licence. You don’t need to have passed the Driver CPC part 1 theory test.
What to take to your test
You must bring one of the following:
- a Great Britain photocard driving licence
- a Northern Ireland photocard driving licence and paper counterpart
- an EU photocard driving licence (and paper counterpart, if you have one)
If you don’t have a photocard driving licence, bring your paper licence and a valid passport.
Your test will be cancelled and you’ll lose your fee if you don’t bring the right documents.
How the test works
The test is made up of 7 case studies you work through on a computer. The case studies are short stories based on situations that you’re likely to come across in your working life.
You’ll be asked between 6 and 8 multiple-choice questions on each case study.
The test lasts for 1 hour and 15 minutes, and the pass mark is 40 out of 50.
Your test result
You’ll get a letter with the results at the test centre.
You need the test pass reference number when you book your Driver CPC part 4 practical demonstration test.
The pass letter is valid for 2 years.
You need to pass the Driver CPC part 4 practical demonstration test within 2 years, otherwise you’ll have to pass the part 2 case studies test again.
If you fail the test
You’ll get a result letter with feedback telling you why you’ve failed.
You can book another case studies test straight away, but you can’t take it for another 3 clear working days.
You can apply for a refund of out-of-pocket expenses if the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) cancels your test at short notice.

1. What you need to know about the LGV case studies
The case studies are designed to test your knowledge (basic recall of facts), comprehension (basic understanding) or application (practical use of knowledge and understanding).
This is done by creating a scenario or a set of circumstances that you may encounter in your working life as a professional driver. You will then be asked a number of questions, relating to this scenario, which will require you to consider how you would behave / react in each case.
The material in our learning section will prepare you for these tests and we have 60 case studies for you to practice on.
