How to register with us to provide ambulance services.
You need to determine if the vehicles you use are defined as transport services. If you need to register with CQC, when you apply we will need full details about the vehicle(s) you intend to use.
We are unable to process your application if:
- you do not have a vehicle you intend to use for the regulated activity, or
- documentary evidence of a lease for the vehicle you intend to use.
This is because the nature of the vehicles used determines the need to register.
You must have all these items ready to include in your application:
- your DBS number
- your statement of purpose
- all supporting documents
- full details about the vehicle(s) you intend to use.
If you are using assistive technology and have any issues using the form on this page, please contact us to let us know. We will make reasonable adjustments wherever possible.
Use this form to register with CQC as a new provider.
Check if you need to complete and submit any of the additional forms listed here.
You also need to complete this additional form for ambulance services.
You may not need to register every ambulance station.
For independent ambulance services, there are two main location rules to consider:
'6'. A regional headquarters from which a national or cross-regional independent ambulance service is managed.
'8'. A place where regulated activities are managed from.

More than one location, nominated individual or two partners
The provider application form contains space for details of one location, one nominated individual and two partners.
If you need to include more details, complete the relevant form for each addition as well as the main form.
If your application also involves one or more registered managers that have not previously registered with us, they should find out how to apply as a new registered manager.
If your registered manager is already registered with us, they should check which form they need to complete.
