CPC Transport Management - Road Haulage

If you operate goods vehicles over 3.5 tonnes GVW, you will require an Operator's Licence. There are two types of licence for UK Operations namely standard and restricted. If you wish to operate for hire and reward in the UK, you will require a standard national CPC and, for international purposes, you will require both a national and an international CPC.

To obtain this licence you must hold or employ someone who holds the relevant Certificate of Professional Competence in Road Haulage (CPC) qualification. Please Note: You do not require a CPC holder for a restricted operator's licence.

To gain your CPC you must pass the relevant CPC examinations. They are conducted four times per year at approved OCR examination centres. Bon-Accord Training Limited is an approved OCR examination centre.
The OCR examination for the National Freight syllabus consists of Units 1 and 2 (multi-choice questions) and Unit 4 (case study).

Examinations are normally held on a Friday in March, June, September and December.
