What is an Operator CPC & why do I need one?
Applicants for an Operator’s Licence must show that they are ‘professionally competent’ or that they employ a transport manager who meets the requirements. Persons will be considered ‘professionally competent’ by passing the examination for the Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) conducted by OCR on behalf of the Department for Transport (DfT).
We have been delivering Operator CPC courses for over 10 years. Course notes will be sent on receipt of payment. We recommend you study your notes prior to attending the course. Both Freight and Passenger courses are available, Passenger courses will be booked on request while Freight Courses are listed below.
Driveline is an OCR approved exam centre so your training and testing will be at the same location.
Please see the following statement from the awarding body OCR:
The next scheduled assessment opportunities are 11 September 2020 and 4 December 2020 and we will be in touch about these nearer the time.
CPC is an important and valued qualification and we recognise the need to support the transport industry at this difficult time. However, we want to work with you to put safety first.
Please see individual course dates below for more information.
Are there any other ways I can study for a CPC?
If you are unable to attend one of our training courses, then you can purchase CPC for Transport Managers materials. Home Study is ideal when you want to study in your own time. Purchase the CPC home study pack, which covers the full OCR CPC examination syllabus. Self assessment questions are located at the end of each section. You will also receive any email or telephone support, where required.
