Plant Ticket Competency Card

Course Overview

This course will assess your competency to drive plant machinery. Once you have completed the course you will be given an official competency card. This proves you are competent to operate that piece of plant machinery. It is important to make sure all plant operators have proof they are competent to operate machinery. If an accident occurs, without proof of competency, the company or machine operator could face the possibility of prison.

How is it different to CPCS or NPORS?

CPCS and NPORS is the recognised qualification needed on major construction group (MCG) sites only, like the ones managed by companies like Kier or Vinci. If you are not working on a major construction group site you will not need CPCS or NPORS. A competency card is a lower cost way to prove you can safely drive a piece of plant machinery. Most work in the UK only requires a competency card. 


The price of assessment per category of plant is £150 each. For 8 categories of plant or more assessed within one day the price is £100 per category. This can be split between a number of people on the same site. Once completed your competency card will last 3 years. 

As a comparison one category of plant will cost £800-£1250 with CPCS and it is mandatory to then complete an NVQ afterwards (or your CPCS card will expire) which costs £750-£950. A total of £1550-£2200 or up to 22 times more money for the same card with CPCS.
