What To Expect

The CPCS renewal test helps to ensure that key knowledge of each plant category or group of categories is maintained, in order to renew a CPCS competent operator (blue) card. 

The CPCS renewal test is split into test modules. Each module has 15 randomly selected multiple choice questions, which need to be answered within 15 minutes. Each module is CPCS plant specific and the questions are based on a range of topics and key knowledge expected of experienced plant operators and have been devised through consultation with plant-based employers and health and safety related data. 

Different modules have been developed to meet the demands of different types of construction plant and trades. Modules are available for each category of plant or for a group of similar categories. You will need to make sure that you take and prepare for the right one(s).
