Whether you're new to OCR, or already offer our qualifications, you might find our admin overview useful. This outlines the main administration processes for our Certificates of Professional Competence (Passenger Transport and Road Haulage), and will guide you to the relevant, detailed information on our website.
If you’re new to CPC or haven’t offered any examined qualifications before, you'll need to complete the vocational centre approval form.
An inspection visit and fee is required per venue.
If you want to run computer-based tests (multiple choice tests only), you’ll also need to ‘Sign up for e-Tests’.
Your Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) may need to apply for access arrangements.
These are made before an exam series to enable candidates with particular requirements to demonstrate attainment.
See the access arrangements page for more information.
For CPC you need to make named unit test entries. These provide us with details of each learner, the qualification they are taking and the venue for the exam:
Once you've made entries, download and return a signed candidate identification form for each candidate.
You must include the place of birth on the form so that the EC certificate, which CPC holders must have, can be issued.
Paper-based question papers are sent approximately ten days before the test date. See the assessment page for more details.
Computer-based tests can be conducted at any time. See the e-assessment page.
Paper-based test results will be issued on results days (approximately six weeks after the test date).
Computer-based test results are available from the SecureAssess administration website immediately and then confirmed results will be available via Interchange within five working days of the test.
Unit and full qualification certificates will be issued five working days after results are issued.
If the candidate's place of birth is given on the candidate ID form, we’ll then also produce an EC certificate, which will arrive a few days later.
Candidates will need this for Operator Licensing purposes.
If you have questions about results, including missing results, use one of our post-results services.
You can request access to marked scripts for the case study exams within six weeks of the receipt of results.
If you're still unhappy with the post-results decision then you may be able to appeal.
Check the fees for each service.
