Standards check test

The Story.....

The Standards Check

In April 2014, DVSA implemented a new assessment of ADIs to check their ability to continue to instruct with the Standards Check. The criteria by which instructors were to be assessed would be aligned closely with the National Standards for Driver and Rider Training (NSDRT). Role 6 of the National Standards explains the knowledge, skills, and understanding that ADIs and their Trainers must demonstrate to be effective in their role.
