This test makes sure that key knowledge of each plant category or group of categories is maintained in order to renew a CPCS competent operator (blue) card.
The 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.
Different modules have been developed to meet the demands of various construction plant and trades. Modules are available for each category of plant or group of similar categories. You will need to make sure you book and prepare for the right one(s).
Use the Module Matcher on our resources page to work out which module(s) you need to take for the CPCS renewal test.
You will need to pass each module to retain each category when renewing your card. You can take up to five CPCS renewal test modules for £40.00 in total.
If you take more than five modules, it will cost £40.00 for additional modules (another one to five modules can be included).
