When, Where and how much is it?

The CPCS Renewal Test can be taken at any PearsonVue test centre or at a CPCS Internet Test Centre.

You need to take the Renewal Test before your existing CPCS Blue Competent Operator card expires. You need to pass each category test before the category can be renewed.

Payment methods

You can take up to five CPCS Renewal Tests in a single slot. One single slot costs £30 and includes the cost of the smart card being produced. If you wish to take six or more tests, it will cost you an additional £30 per slot that you require.

You can also pay for the test via voucher if you are sitting the test at a Pearson Vue test centre. Vouchers can be bought in advance and are valid for one year from the point of purchase. www.pearsonvue.com/nocn

Our Renewal Test Tool will help you to know which test(s) you need to take and prepare. 

Please note: Third-party booking agents MAY charge more.
