CPCS Testing

Step 1 - Construction Skills Health, Safety and Environment Test

You must have taken your test within the last two years.

Step 2 - CPCS Theory Test

You have to answer a set of questions that are about the machine you want to operate. The questions are asked by our CPCS testers on a "one to one" basis and are clear and easy to understand. All theory tests are recorded and you have to get 80% of the questions right to move on to the practical test. You have an hour to complete the test.

Step 3 - CPCS Practical Test

The CPCS Practical test is to show us that you can operate the machine to CPCS standards.

    The test covers:
  • Pre-start Checks
  • Travelling
  • Setting up to Work
  • Working
  • Shutdown

You have to make sure you follow any Health and Safety legislation that relates to the machine and the use of it.

All CPCS practical tests have a time limit which depends on which test you do.

You need to achieve the Construction Skills Health, Safety and Environment Test, CPCS Theory test and the CPCS Practical Test to get your first Red Trained Operator card which lasts for two years.
