With more than twenty years of experience in the field, the French Motorsport Federation has developed new training programs, especially with the creation of diplomas recognized by the French State. Today, the FFSA Academy provides different training sessions for anyone who wants to become a driving insctructor.
Depending on the training level of each candidate, two different trainings are offered by the FFSA Academy.
BP JEPS & DE JEPS
THE PEDAGOGY TEAM
The federal training center relies since its beginnings on a qualified educational team (trainers, coordinators…) and experts. Today, this team is composed of :
National Technical Director

BP JEPS & DE JEPS
CAN BE PREPARED AT THE FFSA ACADEMY.
By the end of the rankings and testings, an estimation is delivered to the candidate, who can finance it himself or through a third party (OPCA, Region, Company…). As for a full training, the price is 15 050€ (selection, certification and positionning costs excluded, which represents a total of 17 050€).
Financial aids can be considered, depending on the status of the candidate: for example the ones who already have a job can benefit from a ‘’Congé Individuel de Formation’’, the ones who are looking for a job ask for financial aids to ‘’Pôle Emploi”, “La Mission Locale”, “La DDTEFP” (Direction Départementale du Travail, de l’Emploi et de la Formation Professionnelle), etc. and the region where they live can also support the charges of the formation.
BP JEPS/ Driving Instructor
Diploma recognized by the French State to exercise an animation or training activity in the motorsport sphere, the “Brevet Profesionnel de la Jeunesse, de l’Éducation Populaire et du Sport (BP JEPS)” allows to meet a practising security need. This certificate is intended for everyone who wants to supervise motor sport activities.
Two differents paths are proposed : Karting and Driving improvement.
The formation works on an alternative sessions spent at work for practice on the field and inside the FFSA Academy for academical learning. 602 hours inside the structure and 658 hours inside a firm, which totals up to 1 260 hours of training.
Getting the BP JEPS in the FFSA Academy presents a double advantage to pretend to an autonomous work while guaranteeing safety for all.
The BP JEPS concerns either a driving instructor (80% of the candidates) who want to regulate his/her situation, or a “novice” who wishes to take on a driving instructor career. This training targets all French candidates but also foreigners who want to exercise on the French soil.
Communication, pedagogy, groups management, driving technics, event organization, sporting and automobile regulation to allow the instructors to be autonomous and ensure optimal and security conditions for the apprentices.
The first condition is to be the owner of a car license B. It is worth knowing that you must have a good level of driving as well. Moreover, you must have the attestation of “Prévention et Secours Civiques de Niveau 1” (PSC1). The candidate must then complete a registration form to apply to the FFSA Academy and pass the tests to see if he/she qualifies.
For a complete training, the cost is 25€/h (selection and certification costs excluded).
The formation takes place

> 700 hours in a firm
which adds up to 1 400 hours of formation spread over 10 months.
