Cant recommend Pearson for a their Transport Manager CPC course enough, my teacher Mike was better than I could of hoped, not only taught me everything I needed to pass, but was always a pleasure too learn from, he has such a wealth of knowledge. Thanks to the admin team also for making everything so easy, all in all i really enjoyed doing the course with them, and highly recommend them.

Excellent tuition and insight from Mike & Bob. I am not in the haulage industry so therefore had a "slight" disadvantage going into this, but the fact that I passed with very good results goes to show the top level of the course and tuition. Would definitely recommend.

Comprehensive course with excellent tutors, intensive as it needs to be, the only comment would be is that the focus was on the Exam 1 exam multi choice and less on Exam 2. This is my personal perspective and I am sure others on the course would reflect differently.

I was very sceptical about trying to complete a course over Zoom, however within 5 minutes, you forgot you weren’t in a classroom with Mike and the other candidates.Mikes relaxed style and friendliness made you feel part of a team striving for the same goal straight away, I couldn’t recommend Pearson’s highly enough .

Outstanding Training provider. Mike is phenomenal! Mike is a fountain of knowledge and one of the loveliest people I have had the pleasure of knowing. Bob and Melanie are the two other pieces of the perfect puzzle, which is why Pearson's is the best at what they do. The team are with you all the way, you are not just a number in the classroom. I have no regrets picking Pearson's and always will recommend!

FAQ's

Do I need an Operator License?

An Operator’s license is needed to run a business using goods vehicles over 3.5kg gross weight, or passenger carrying vehicles with more than 8 passengers seats, used for hire and reward.

What does my Operator License mean?

Restricted: Carry your own goods in the course of trade or business

National: Transporting your own or other’s goods for hire and reward exclusively within the United Kingdom.

International: Carrying your own or other’s goods for hire and reward on International Journeys.

Do you need an Internal or External Transport Manager?

Appointing a Transport Manager is a legal requirement of the Operator Licensing System for both Standard National or Standard International Operator’s Licenses. Holders of these licenses have an obligation to appoint someone who holds a valid Transport Manager CPC to manage the operations for LGV & PCV.

It is at the Operator’s discretion as to whether the transport manager is internal (employed) or external (freelance). However, an External Transport Manager cannot work for more than 4 Operators or be responsible for more than 50 vehicles.

If you hold a Restricted Operator’s license and are not legally obliged to employ a transport manager, Pearson CPC have a range of management services that can help you maintain your compliance requirements as you are still subject to the same sets of undertakings as Standard or International License Holders.

What is an External Transport Manager?

External transport managers are competent professionals (TMCPC Holders) who generally work for small to mid-sized operators, to ensure that their vehicles are roadworthy and that their drivers are compliant with drivers’ hours rules.

Your Solution to Operator Licence Compliance

Outsourcing your CPC holder provides a cost-effective solution to achieve Operator License compliance. Pearson CPC offer all operators, new and existing, an Operator Licence Compliance Audit to ensure safety and compliance is ensured at all times to get you started and see how we can further support your business.

So why not  contact us today to achieve your compliance requirements with a Pearson CPC Freelance External Transport Manager, without the expense of a full-time member of staff?

External Transport Manager fees start from £400 for the first vehicle and £100 for each extra vehicle. Discounts many apply for multiple vehicle operators. For Restricted Operators we can work on a consultancy basis, starting with a full compliance assessment and recommendation plan.
