In order to obtain your own CPC as a Transport Manager, you will need to pass an exam administered by OCR. Exams are held 4 times a year: in March, June, September, and December. It consists of 2 parts:
- Multiple Choice (2 hours 15 minutes).
- Case Studies (2 hours 15 minutes).
Most of the information related to the OCR exam is available here. There, you will find sample Multiple Choice questions under “(2) Sample assessment materials” and sample Case Study exams under “(73) Past papers, mark schemes and reports”. Answers and analysis of past Case Study exams are available under “Examiner reports”. A complete syllabus for the exam is available here.
Here’s one example (more are available here):
- Case Study Exam – Description – September 2018
- Case Study Exam – Questions – September 2018
- Case Study Exam – Answers and Examiner Report – September 2018
You can buy self-study materials here. That book is about 5cm thick, and it’s a stack of A4 sheets of paper printed on both sides. You are allowed to bring any paper materials to the Case Study part of the exam but not to Multiple Choice.
You can view answers to sample Multiple Choice exam questions here.
Here you’ll find more answers to Multiple Choice questions but only for HGV, however many sections of the PSV exam have a lot of similarities.
Watch our YouTube video with a multiple choice exam for HGV (but PSV has some similarities to it)
Good luck on your exam!
