Modernising driver training:response to consultation
Following last year’s consultation on the ‘modernisation of the driver training industry’ GOV.UK has now published its response.
The main points covered are:
- to enhance the DVSA examination process by replacing the existing test of instructional ability (ADI part 3) with one similar to the standards check
- to work with key stakeholders to further investigate the options for reforming the trainee licence scheme in light of the above
- not to introduce the vocational qualification route at the moment but explore it as a future option
- to introduce an online booking system for the standards check
- to carry out a consultation on revising the ADI fee structure later this year
As a result of the responses, the following aims were decided:
- to reduce the burden on ADIs whose registration has lapsed for more than 12 months - subject to further discussion with the industry
- to seek an opportunity to amend legislation to let instructors request voluntary removal from the register of ADIs
- to extend consumer information about ADIs
- to have more discussions with the industry on how help can be given to top grade instructors and to promote their higher level of competence
