How do I set up a Driver CPC training centre?

You must get approval to run Driver CPC training courses. First, you must apply for approval for your training centre, which lasts 5 years. Second, you must apply for approval for each course you will run, which lasts one year.

Once these are completed, you can run a Driver CPC training centre. However, you will be monitored to ensure compliance, with course and centre audits being regularly conducted by JAUPT.

How to apply for Driver CPC centre approval

  1. Complete a centre approval application form
  2. Create a ‘scheme of control’, which specifies how you will provide high-quality training. You can download a template here and see an example document here.
  3. Complete or create any supporting documents to evidence the claims in your ‘scheme of control’
  4. Pay a fee of £1,500 to submit your application

Adding emergency first aid to your training centre course portfolio

Rather than approving your own course, allow us to deliver ‘professional driver’ specific emergency first aid courses on your behalf. Whether its LGV’s or PCV’s our trainers are experts in running contextualised training at any business venue. 

The Co-op has a team of trainers who can work from your venue to deliver a 7-hour JAUPT approved Professional Driver (CPC) emergency first aid course. We make it easy by uploading qualification details to the DSA database within five working days of course completion.
