What is the Online Transport Manager course?
Our online Transport Manager Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) course is designed to maximise your opportunity to pass first time.
This qualification is designed for individuals who want to become Transport Managers, or demonstrate their professional competence to meet the requirements when applying for their ‘O’ (Operators) Licence.
The type of Transport Manager CPC qualification you need depends on the following:
- road haulage – for goods vehicle operators, for example HGV or van companies
- road passenger transport – for public service vehicle operators, for example bus or coach companies
You must pass both types of CPC exam if you want to manage both types of vehicle, you do not need a driving licence to qualify and whilst you can take the exams at 16 or 17 years of age it should be noted that the Traffic Commissioners in Great Britain have confirmed it is unlikely anyone under the age of 18 would be seen as an appropriate transport manager for the purposes of satisfying the professional competence requirements to hold or apply for of an operators’ licence.

Our Bespoke Study Materials
The Study Manual
Our bespoke 600-page Transport Management Handbook has been developed with you, the candidate at the forefront of our minds!
Rather than simply covering the syllabus points, our publication aims to provide a reference work that will support prospective transport managers throughout their career. The text has been ordered in a natural sequence so that each section flows logically from the previous one, and each concept is introduced in a context that aids understanding and retention. A full index and table of illustrations is provided to enable the reader to access detail quickly.
Breaking down the study manual into more manageable sections our Key Facts booklet runs alongside the main publication.
With a much smaller footprint it aims to give candidates a simplified version of each topic, ideal for those that want to study on the go!
The study Guide is designed to offer candidates a practical approach to answering questions commonly found in the Transport Manager exam’s.
Giving a structured step by step ‘how to’ view on questioning, it can invaluable in the ‘open book’ case study exam.
Our team of professional instructors have gone back through the back catalogue of past case study examinations and created a unique model answers booklet giving candidates the opportunity to view what would be the most ideal answer for every question given.
This should be used for reference purposes and also to help candidates test themselves on past examination papers.
Transport Manager 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 or passenger transport multiple choice
2) Road haulage or passenger transport 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 around 6 questions relating to the company. Whilst there are no absolutes, generally 50% of the paper is spent on three core areas Operator Licensing, Drivers’ Hours (Scheduling) and Vehicle Costing. The other 50% of the exam is less predictable and selects topics from other areas of the syllabus.
