From 14 January 2016, driving instructors will need to give there Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) certificate number when they apply online to renew their ADI registration or start the qualifying process.
The DVSA’s online registration will no longer accept applications or renewals without this information.
The certificate must be no more than 6 months old, provided by DVSA’s contractor, GB Group, and be specifically for DVSA purposes.
The online registration system won’t accept a certificate that has been provided by another contractor or has been produced for another role.
Instructors should apply for the DBS certificate in good time as some police forces take up to 4 months to finish their checks.
DVSA’s registration team will continue to send out reminders 6 months before ADI’s registrations expire. To avoid any delay, please make sure that DVSA has your current postal address.
For more information or advice on the new online ADI Registration contact Britannia’s ADI trainer, Simon on 020 8543 8050.
