The DVSA have announced that it is creating a new team of dedicated Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) examiners, who’ll be conducting ADI qualifying tests and standards checks 5 days a week.
This will help improve test availability and as they’ll be based across the country, in time the agency will be able to offer a greater choice of location for these tests.
ADI examiners will:
Provide feedback on performance following practical tests, standards checks and ORDIT inspections
Share good practice in line with National standards
Support ADIs who have any questions or concerns about driver training
Alert the Registrar’s team of non-compliance with regulations
This will provide ADIs with specialist day-to-day contact with staff from DVSA, help raise standards in driver training and support people through a lifetime of safe driving.
The agency said that it will keep people informed of developments, including details of your local ADI Enforcement manager.
