The certificates are valid for life, unless the Transport Manager is required by the Traffic Commissioner to take a new TM CPC exam or loses their repute due to infractions.

With day to day responsibility for all aspects of a transport operation, from maintenance to health and safety, from drivers licensing to defects, it is vital that a candidate for a transport manager’s role has knowledge covering a wide range of haulage and road user regulations. The eight day Transport Manager CPC course provides all the knowledge you need to sit and successfully pass the Transport Manager Certificate of Professional Competence exam.

After 10 years in the haulage industry, rising to running my own small fleet of vehicles, I left the cab behind to focus on training the next generation of drivers. I now run RPS Driven Media, give driving lessons as a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor and relate my experience of road haulage in Driver CPC courses throughout the year.
