We are working with researchers to help us to develop our campaign that will encourage learners to only book and take a driving test once they’re ready.
Mark Magee is head of DVSA's Central Policy Team, which provides policy advice and support across the agency.
We’re in the process of developing an app to be used by driving examiners to record driving tests electronically. Find out more about this work and how it will benefit candidates taking their test.
To help learner drivers make an informed decision about who teaches them, we’ve made some improvements to the ‘find your nearest driving instructor’ service.
In this blog, I’ll address the most frequently asked questions and give you information on what you need to do to make sure you’re prepared for the changes being introduced in October 2017.
Last September, we told you about the proposed changes we’re making to the ADI part 3 test. We've been busy since then and in this short blog post, I want to tell you about what's happened and what you can do to prepare.
We’ve been speaking to the approved driving instructor industry and organisations about improving the training and testing of trainee driver instructors. In this blog post, I’ll be talking about how we’re proposing to change the ADI Part 3 test and the reasons for doing so.
From today (Thursday 28 July 2016), you can opt-in to display your standards check grade on the ‘find your nearest driving instructor’ service on GOV.UK.
Earlier this month (Sunday 4 October), both Lesley Young and I attended and presented DVSA’s future plans at this year’s ADINJC Annual conference.
The vast majority of instructors maintain a high professional standard and are a credit to the driver training industry. To make sure this continues, it’s important that DVSA takes appropriate action whenever someone’s conduct falls below what is expected.
