From 1 October 2022 the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) will become part of DVSA. JAUPT processes applications from training providers for centre and course approvals for Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (DCPC) and drink-drive rehabilitation (DDR).
JAUPT offers these services exclusively to DVSA, so it has been decided to bring the functions JAUPT offers in-house to DVSA.
The existing staff have been offered the chance to join DVSA so the service to DCPC training providers will stay the same.
No change to DCPC courses
At the moment the website and the way Driver CPC courses are searched for through the current JAUPT website which is linked to from GOV.UK will stay the same.
The way courses and centres are approved and audited will remain the same so that the number of courses and quality of training is not affected.
The phone number for enquiries will continue to be 01908 787 000 and the email for general enquiries is email@example.com. The address for JAUPT will change on 1 October to:
Suite 208, Cubix,
Keeping you updated on changes
Over the next few months, DVSA will be making some changes to JAUPT as the work progresses to embed the way it works in to DVSA. They will keep you updated with any changes ahead of them being made.
