Modernising Driver Training: Interim Response to Consultation

Professional driving instructors have been regulated since the 1960s to help make sure that people receive a minimum standard of training when they pay for professional instruction. The Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) wants to ensure that a modern and fair regulatory framework is in place that: minimises the cost of regulatory compliance; can help existing Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) to obtain the competences needed to deliver effective training, as set out in the DVSA National standard for driving and rider training; and will make sure that those entering the industry in the future develop the same competences. On 27 June 2013, the DVSA published a consultation paper: ‘Modernising driver training: reform of the regulatory framework for Approved Driving Instructors.’ The consultation paper invited comments on proposed changes to the way in which people qualify to become an ADI. The consultation closed on 8 August 2013 with 1,679 valid responses. This paper: provides an interim response to the consultation exercise, sets out preferred options on how DVSA intends to progress, and identifies where DVSA wishes to take further views from the industry.
