Operators Certificate of Professional Competence

Now in our online classroom - Available from your own home or workplace.

To run vehicles over 3.5 Tonnes gvw for hire and reward, a standard Operators Licence will need to be obtained.  One of the requierments for this is that there must be a Professionally Competent Person who has effective control of the vehicles.  The Certificate of Professional Competence proves this professional competency and is required to obtain an Operators Licence.

There is now only one qualification that covers both national and international requirements.

You'll stand a better chance of passing with Corridans Training - one of the highest pass rates in the UK.


Operators CPC Qualification - Road Haulage

The qualification is made up of two exams consisting of:

R1/P1 multiple choice of 60 questions needing a pass mark of 70%

R2/P2 case study of 5-8 questions needing a pass mark of 50% - this is now an open book

This course runs four times a year to the awarding body's exam dates.  A full course manual is provided on the course and the last day of the course is an invaluable exam preparation day. 


Operators CPC Qualification - Passenger Transport

Corridans also offer the Certificate of Professional Competence for Passenger Transport.  Candidates attend the first part of the national road haulage course that runs the same initial syllabus, the second section is via home study with tutorial support.


Additional Note: for candidates wishing to upgrade an old national qualification to an international qualification
Please note, OCR took the decision a number of years ago when the format of the qualification changed significantly to include the case study papers, that those who obtained their CPC National before October 1999 can no longer upgrade to an international by the normal route of sitting an add on module.  They must instead take the full examinations the same as an initial qualification .
