Part 3 to be replaced by Standards Check

Wednesday, March 23, 2016

 

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is to replace Part 3 of the ADI qualifying process with the Standards Check in the next financial year.

The existing ADI Part 3 will be replaced by the Standards Check “to improve the ADI qualification process and align it with the post-qualification assessment,” according to the DVSA’s business plan for 2016/2017 as laid down in Parliament by transport minister Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon (pictured) today (23.03.2016).

In addition, the agency would:

• work with key ADI stakeholders to agree proposed indicators for an earned recognition scheme for ADIs;

• consider options for introducing an on-line booking system for the ADI Standards Checks so ADIs can book their own Standards Checks at a time that’s convenient for them;

• work with DfT to move deregulation on to let fully qualified ADI’s with dual controlled cars offer lessons on motorways to learner drivers; and

• make changes to regulations so that ADIs can resign voluntarily from the register and allow those who’ve lapsed voluntarily to re-join the register by successfully completing a standards check rather than re-qualifying.

 

The latter plan, to allow re-joining of the register, is already at committee stage in the House of Lords following cross-party support for a private members bill introduced by David Amess.  

In the plan, the DVSA said: “We’ll continue to regulate approved driving instructors who give paid car driver training, to make sure minimum standards are met and the overall integrity of the industry is maintained.”
