When it comes to Driving instructor training the ONLY qualification the DVSA recommends is ORDIT.
They do not recommend trainers who have BTEC, Advanced Driving Diplomas, NVQ’s or ADI. The DVSA says that it recommends you do all your driving instructor training with Ordit registered Trainers
It stands for Official Register of Driving Instructor Trainers.
What does it mean?
It means that your trainer has been watched by a senior examiner from the DVSA as to how your trainer teaches potential driving instructors, and your trainer has shown that he can teach to the high and exacting standards expected by the DVSA.
ORDIT Driving instructor Training
Infact you may notice that on the DVSA web site it encourages people who are becoming driving instructors to ONLY train with an ORDIT registered trainer!
What is ORDIT driving instructor training?
ORDIT was set up by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) to protect the public from substandard driving instructor training and unscrupulous business practices. ORDIT is managed by the DVSA and members failing to maintain the required standard may be removed (or feel compelled to resign) from ORDIT.
To have your organisation approved by the DVSA and the various trade associations you must submit your organisation to regular inspections and abide by the ORDIT code of practice covering advertising, selling and customer care.
ORDIT driving instructor training courses
Ideally only ORDIT qualified trainers should be used by the organisation although at the moment the rules do allow up to 50% of trainers to be unqualified.
This is not the case with Driver Training Ltd all of our trainers are fully ORDIT qualified.
The DVSA only approve training from ORDIT organisations. The DVSA do not recognise NVQ or any other qualification as adequate to train people to become driving instructors.
How do I benefit?
You know that you are getting value for money! Many driving schools advertise that they do Driving instructor training and yet they may never have taught anyone, or know what the DVSA expects them to teach potential instructors now.
DVSA ORDIT Trainers
You see a driving instructor could have qualified many years ago and not realise how much things have changed and what the examiners on your part 2 and 3 expect to see. (I have many people come to me, who are in exactly that situation!)
But the fact that I have qualified to be on the register means that I do, which means you are getting the best value for your money and the best chance of passing (as the testimonials show).
