Potential Delays with Pre-Funded Account
Potential Delays with Pre-Funded Accounts
DVSA have asked us to highlight that periodic training centres who use Pre-Funded Accounts (PFAs) may currently experience some delays when topping up their accounts. There is no issue paying upload fees from accounts that are already in credit.
DVSA have confirmed that they are aware of the problem and are working on a solution, they do not envisage delays will be substantial and are confident that the issue will be resolved shortly. They ask that, when possible, centres who use PFA’s plan accordingly to minimise potential disruption to drivers.
Quality Assurance Update
Following feedback from centres we have developed an example Trainer Register and CPD Training Record.
These documents have been created to help you meet the requirements that are checked at the Quality Assurance visits.
Changes to the Driver CPC Logo Guideline
We are pleased to announce that following feedback from Approved Centres new logo guidelines have been published.
In order for BACS payments to be reconciled against the correct application, please ensure that you provide the following details on your remittance advice:
Course Name (if applicable)
The payment reference that you provide your bank should start with JAUPT and then please include a unique reference number if possible e.g. the CRS number or something like C0U45e, this will help us to match your payment to the relevant application and will ensure that applications can be processed quickly.
