Replace a lost, stolen or damaged Driver CPC card

You must replace your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) card if it’s been lost, stolen or damaged.

You can get a £50 fixed penalty for driving professionally without your card.

Apply for a replacement

To get a replacement card (sometimes called a ‘driver qualification card’ or ‘DQC’), call the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and give your:

  • name
  • driving licence number
  • date of birth
  • address
  • telephone number

You need a credit or debit card to pay the £25 fee.
