New dedicated Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) examiners team

DVSA are 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 we’ll 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 the 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.
