Enterprise Transport Training offer Road Haulage Operator CPC Courses from locations across the UK for every Transport Manager exam sitting.

Passenger Transport Operator CPC Examinations are also offered at all of our locations.

We achieve pass rates well above the national average.

Our Operator CPC courses are delivered via a number of study methods, at times convenient to you. Whatever your budget, learning style or work schedule, we have an option to suit you. All courses are delivered to the highest professional standard, at the lowest price.

All Enterprise Transport Training sites are OCR accredited examination centres, giving the benefit of taking the exam at the same location as your training course.

The case study exam is held every quarter in accordance with the national timetable set by OCR.

All our sites are also accredited ‘e-testing’ venues for the multiple choice examination, meaning that candidates can choose when they wish to sit this element of the examination. Multiple choice examinations are held every week at every centre. Results are received same day.

Refresher Courses

2 day refresher courses targeted at existing operators and their staff are held on a quarterly basis.

The course provides a complete overview of the Operator Licencing regime ensuring that existing operators keep abreast of legislative changes. It also allows traffic office staff to be aware of the responsibilities placed upon Operators and the importance of running a fully compliant transport operation.

For those Operators who have not taken their obligations with regards to continuing professional development as seriously as they ought and who wish to demonstrate to the Traffic Commissioner that they have undergone refresher training it is the ideal course.

Operator CPC Exam Overview

Anyone wishing to operate goods vehicles for hire and reward both in the UK and abroad must obtain a standard international operator’s licence. To meet the professional competence requirements contained in the legislation a new entrant must gain the Operators’ Certificate of Professional Competence. You can gain your Operator CPC by passing the following exams.

  1. Road haulage multiple choice
  2. Road haulage case study

Multiple Choice Exam

The multiple choice exam consists of 60 questions. Students have up to 2 hours to complete the exam. The exam is designed to test an individual’s knowledge of basic facts covered across the course subject. The pass mark is normally 42.

Case Study Exam

This exam lasts for two and a quarter hours and candidates are permitted to take paper-based reference material into the exam (also known as ‘open book’). Candidates are given information about a transport company; they must read and analyse the information. They are then asked to answer between 6 and 8 questions relating to the company. 50% of the paper is spent on three major areas Operator Licensing, Drivers’ Hours and Vehicle Costing (approximately 5 sections of the course manual); the other 50% of the exam concentrates on the other areas of the manual.
