Save lives, join our community of specialist trained first responders on the road.

DFA stats

Building a safer road network

Our members are on road first responders. Drivers are often first or early to arrive at the scene of an RTC and provide assistance. In the minutes between an RTC occurring and the arrival of paramedics, DFA’s instructors train drivers to be safe, effective and save lives.

On road first responders

Our members have the capability to significantly increase the chance of surviving an RTC. DFAs instructors are current and former emergency services personnel. They have front-line experience responding to emergencies. Their specialist training enables our members to not only provide lifesaving first aid; we train our members to work in partnership with the emergency services through to handover when paramedics arrive at the scene.

Driver CPC Periodic Training

Qualified lorry, bus or coach drivers hold a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) and to maintain this qualification they are required to do 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years.

Approved by the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) and accredited by leading provider of educational services NCFE, our driver training course will also count towards your Driver CPC Periodic Training.
