DCPC training upload issue addressed by DVSA

DVSA has advised that a bug which affected its Online Driver Enquiry Service (ODES) has been fixed. That means Driver CPC (DCPC) training providers can now upload records of training undertaken last week.

However, it adds the caveat that there may be a backlog of records to uploads. That could affect the dispatch of Driver Qualification Cards (DQCs) to those drivers with dual entitlement. Their existing DQCs will expire on 9 September.

DQCs are generated automatically when 35 hours of training is recorded as complete. DVSA has reaffirmed that drivers can still drive professionally if they have completed the necessary training and are waiting for their new card to arrive.

The issue also affected the facility for drivers to check their DCPC training record via ODES but that too is now resolved.
