CPC Home Study

International Certificate of Professional Competence (Road Haulage)

Distance Learning

For those candidates who are unable to attend an intensive course or who prefer to study at home in their own time at their own pace, we offer our distance learning option.

You will be supplied with the normal course manual plus a selection of sample questions to test your knowledge as you study. It is recommended that distance learning candidates also attend our case-study session (an additional fee is charged) on one of the days prior to the examination to gain coaching in how to tackle this part of the examination.

Our Distance Learning courses are based on a highly successful “Open Learning” formula, which provides self assessment questions and test papers to give you the best possible opportunity of evaluating your progress. A section is also included explaining how to tackle a Case Study together with appropriate examples.

Course Manual

Course Manuals are available for the new combined National & International syllabus effective from 2012 and also for the older International-only syllabus for previously qualified National CPC holders wishing to upgrade their qualification during 2012.

The manuals are divided into Sections, each section covering one part of the OCR syllabus. All sections will be sent to you at the same time, so that you may work at your own speed. Additionally, each section is divided into “sessions” and with each session there will be a series of questions to which the answers are supplied. These are self-assessment questions, which enable you to judge your own progress.

All of our study material has been written by experienced, highly qualified lecturers in an easy to follow format, and it is regularly updated.


Please note that examination fees are NOT included in the cost of distance learning manuals.

The OCR examinations are held quarterly, in March, June. September and December, the next available examination dates are given on the booking form which you can request from us and they are also shown on the CPC International section of this website. Although you may study the whole of the CPC Syllabus at home, it will be necessary for you to take the examination itself at an authorized OCR exam centre. If you would like us to arrange for you to sit the exam at our centre in Stoke, please indicate this on the booking form. Alternatively, on request, we can supply you with details of any authorized examination centre closer to you. Regrettably, no examination bookings can be accepted later than three weeks before the final OCR examination registration date.

Transfer to Intensive Courses

We are confident that you will find our Distance Learning Packages easy to follow. However, we offer an added safeguard. If after beginning your course you find that you would prefer to attend one of our intensive courses, you may transfer to an attendance course – for whatever reason – by paying the difference between the fees you have already paid for the Distance Learning Course, and the fees payable for an intensive course.
