The feasibility studies of the measurement of the central exclusive jet production at the LHC using the proton tagging technique are presented. In order to reach the low jet-mass region, single tagged events were considered. The studies were performed at the c.m. energy of 14 TeV and the ATLAS detector, but are also applicable for the CMS-TOTEM experiments. Four data-taking scenarios were considered: AFP and ALFA detectors as forward proton taggers and m and m optics. After the event selection, the signal-to-background ratio ranges between 5 and . Finally, the expected precision of the central exclusive dijet cross-section measurement for the data collection period of 100 h is estimated.
