Transport Manager CPC

A requirement for the granting of a standard ‘O’ Licence for freight operations is that the licence holder either holds, or has access to the services of someone who holds a Certificate of Professional Competence. Current legislation imposes restrictions on the number of operator licences and vehicles on which an external associate CPC holder can be named.

The CPC is a qualification issued on behalf of all E national transport departments (DfT) in the UK.


Essex Drivers is an Awarding Organisation for the CPC and offers the various courses throughout the year.

Who is the qualification for?
