Former Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) chief executive Alastair Peoples has been appointed non-executive director of UK learning to drive app company miDrive.
Peoples was previously chief executive of both the Driving Standards Agency and Vehicle and Operator Services Agency, before the two agencies merged to form the DVSA in April 2014. He announced his retirement in June this year.
Peoples said: "I believe miDrive parallels the road safety objectives that were set with the DVSA, by increasing driving standards, providing customers with more choice of Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) and improving pass rates without reducing the quality of driving. By offering a way to link driving lessons with practice at home, miDrive is helping learners learn to drive, rather than to simply pass the test."
