Any applicant for a standard national or a standard international goods vehicle operator’s licence must meet the required level of professional competency expected by the Traffic Commissioner, or must employ a Transport Manager who meets this requirement.

The Certificate of Professional Competence for Transport Managers (CPC) is the qualification that shows the Traffic Commissioner that this requirement has been met.

To gain the CPC for Transport Managers, candidates must pass two exams which are set by the C.I.L.T exam board.

TMCPC table 2

The Multiple Choice exam consists of 40 questions, all of which have four possible answers. Candidates must identify the correct answer and mark the paper accordingly. This is not an open book exam, meaning that no notes or revision materials are allowed to be taken into the exam room.

The Case Study exam is based around 3 scenarios. Each scenario is based on a fictional goods vehicle operator, and candidates must study the information provided and answer the questions accordingly. This is an open book exam, meaning that notes and revision materials are allowed to be taken into the exam room.


Our intensive classroom course runs for the eight working days preceding the exam, which ensures that all of the information candidates have learnt is fresh in the mind.

Not only do candidates learn the required information for the two exams, but they also learn the exam techniques and skills needed to communicate this information in the way the exam board require.
