Sadly we aren't able to give you an update with a firm new date for the introduction of the new Part 3 assessment, as DVSA are still awaiting parliamentary approval to introduce the change.
However, DVSA have been in touch with ADI News to update us that all PDIs with tests booked up to the 13th October should have now been contacted to advise them of the issue, and the agency will now also contact all those with tests booked up to the 27th October.
Candidates affected will be offered the options of postponing their test to a later date or keeping their current test date and taking the test in the current format. They’ll also be advised to speak to their instructor trainer to discuss the best option for them.
All instructor trainers on ORDIT have been contacted using the email address DVSA holds for them on Find your Nearest (if you're an ORDIT registered trainer and you have not received any contact from DVSA in this regard, we suggest you contact them or check your Find Your Nearest listing to ensure they have the right email address for you).
As soon as we receive any further updates on the new go-live date we'll let you know here.
