CILT(UK) Certificate of Professional Competence for Transport Managers (TMCPC)

The Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) for Transport Managers in Passenger Transport and Road Haulage is offered by CILT(UK) and includes a range of subjects related to the business of road and passenger transport.

A requirement for the granting of a standard ‘O’ Licence for both freight and passenger 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 EU national transport departments (DfT) in the UK. CILT(UK) is an Awarding Organisation for the CPC.

Who is the qualification for?

Everyone involved in road transport who operates vehicles for hire and reward must demonstrate evidence of professional competence.

The qualification is for individuals who:

  • are Transport Managers or are aspiring to this role who will have responsibility for the holding of an organisation’s Operator’s Licence

  • need to demonstrate their professional competence to meet Operator Licencing requirements (Holding a CPC is one of the elements an applicant must satisfy for the Transport Commissioner to grant an ‘O’ Licence).

Need help in preparing for an Operators Licence Audit?

What is an audit?

It is simply a comprehensive review of an organisation's adherence to Operators Licence standards. CILT’s auditors review a range of procedures over the course of an audit to ensure operators are legal and working to the standards expected by the Traffic Commissioner.

How we can help?

At CILT(UK), we offer a bespoke audit by our in-house IRCA qualified Auditors. All audits are independent and free from pressure or internal agendas. CILT audits are in depth to determine your compliance status with the Operators Licence standards. We save you time, we explain regulations and requirements and the corrective action required in one easy to read audit report giving you the chance to put things right.
