Apply for verified driver trainer certification during the COVID-19 outbreak
This register allows those trainers who are carrying out essential training to validate their work, gain certification to display in their car and receive important training and guidance on working safely during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Registration, training and certification is entirely voluntary and trainers are not obliged to join the register, or use these resources. They are being provided as a helpful, advisory and professional development resource for the industry during this unprecedented period of crisis and change.
The information and advice about coronavirus is changing rapidly and this will have an effect on our services. However, rest assured we will do all we can to keep any disruption to a minimum
