Join The Guild
Thank you for your interest in joining the Guild of Professional Chauffeurs.
There is an overall fee of £250.00 for taking the assessment and subsequent membership of the Guild for one year. When, as a potential candidate, you complete the form below, we require a £30.00 deposit to register your interest. Once a date for your assessment is allocated, we will require confirmation of your attendance together with payment of the balance of £220.00
If unsuccessful on your initial assessment, you will be offered a free reassessment within a timeframe dependent on availability. Please note that the £250.00 assessment/membership fee is not refundable if the candidate is unsuccessful and chooses not to take advantage of the free reassessment.
To ensure standards remain high, we are only allowing two attempts at the assessment process per year and in the event of you being unsuccessful after two assessments, you will not be able to reapply for at least twelve months. Your original £250.00 joining fee will not be refunded and if you wish to reapply after a year, you will again be required to pay the full assessment/membership fee.
We must make the point that the way the assessment is structured, coupled with very detailed feedback, means we are confident the vast majority of candidates will be successful on their second attempt if they don't get through first time. This will of course depend to a great extent on how much effort candidates make to prepare for the assessment.
The annual membership will then commence on the date the assessment is passed. Thereafter, the annual renewal fee will be £50.00
On each three year anniversary, members will be invited to retake the assessment to remain current and there will be no cost to this. Passing the reassessment is a condition of ongoing membership.
Thorough records will be kept of all transactions and a register of members will be added to this website as soon as candidates begin passing the assessment process.
Once successful, new members will be made aware of the rules governing the use of the GoPC logo and will be asked to sign a code of conduct relating to membership.
Please complete the form below to begin your application. Further information will be sent to you via the email address you provide so please ensure it is an address you have access to.
