Instructors praised over response to hazard perception

1 October 2006

Over 80% of fully qualified driving instructors throughout Britain have now passed the hazard perception assessment introduced by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA). Passing the assessment is compulsory and instructors were given two years - until 31 December 2006 - to pass it.

Those instructors who have not passed the assessment by the end of this year face removal from the Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) Register. When they are removed, they will no longer be able to carry out their jobs as driving instructors. All new entrants to the instruction industry and trainee instructors take the hazard perception test as part of the qualifying process. More details
