Hi

Welcome to the forum!

I've not got any experience myself but from what other people have told me over the years, you can expect a mixture of driving/driving rules questions plus general work experience, customer service scenarios, etc.  Nothing that would surprise or trick you that I know of.

Is your DCPC just from periodical training or did you take the initial DCPC when you passed your LGV test?  I suspect that you will need to do the whole lot again for your PCV...  :cryin_smilie:

There is an expert knocking about on here who will be able to answer that question more accurately if he pops by...  :thumb_yello:

Cheers

Our expert might correct me on this but I think if you have done your initial (rather than just periodical) to get your DCPC you only have to do one of the modules again.

I know if it's from periodical only you have to do the whole lot but you will get away wil some of it.
