After months of consultation with ADIs and national associations, the DSA has published a new code of practice. Though it remains voluntary, ADI registrar Mark Magee is encouraging all ADIs to sign up to the code.
The code of practice deals with the personal conduct of an instructor, such as complying with the law and acting in a professional manner, as well as business dealings. Further, the code of practice also details terms on advertising and conciliation.
Magee has stated that there is no intention of making the code mandatory and that could only achieved by extending the regulatory framework. However, a number of industry campaigners have been calling for a compulsory code to give driver training greater professional credibility with members of the public.
