CPC Holder - Overview

CPC Holder, or its full meaning, Certificate of Professional Competence Holder, & the requirement of having a CPC Holder nominated on either a Road Haulage, or Road Passenger Transport application, does in a lot of cases come as a bit of a surprise to many who are applying for a Road Transport Operator’s Licence.

It is very common for many not have even heard of the terms, Certificate of Professional Competence, CPC, or CPC Holder, never mind understanding the role of a CPC Holder has to play, in relation to Road Transport Operator Licensing Regulations.
