CPCS Testing Report 2023

BAM Construction Training are thrilled to release our CPCS Testing Report 2023.

This report showcases data based on every CPCS test that took place at our training centres between 1st January – 31st December 2023. Get the latest insights… including our CPCS testing pass rates!

CPCS Testing Statistics

Last year, 1073 candidates completed CPCS testing at BAM Construction Training. The majority of these candidates completed tests as part of our high-quality CPCS training courses, while others had the experience to advance straight to their tests.

2593 total tests were booked – including 1240 theory tests and 1353 practical tests.

Theory Testing

Out of 1353 theory tests booked:

1093 passed – Congratulations, you guys smashed it!

114 failed – Don’t worry, sometimes things don’t go to plan. However, you didn’t let this discourage you. Many candidates revised their notes and passed on their theory re-test.

33 cancelled – Most cancellations resulted from candidates not completing the CITB health, safety & Environment test.

Overall, excluding cancellations, we averaged a theory pass rate of 88%.

Practical Testing

Out of 1240 practical tests booked:

1230 passed – Well done, you guys are experts!

47 failed – Don’t panic, sometimes the nerves get to you. Many of these candidates were able to pass on their re-test.

76 cancelled – Most cancellations resulted from failed theory tests. This was because, before taking the practical test, you must pass the theory test.

Overall, excluding cancellations, we averaged a practical pass rate of 91%.
