The Driving Standards Agency has said that it is abandoning plans to make continuing professional development mandatory for Approved Driving Instructors, saying that it wants the check test to remain the standard by which instructors are judged.
DSA chief executive Rosemary Thew said: “Any attempt to take an ADI off the register because they had failed to undertake mandatory CPD would be hard to justify without them failing a check test, and it’s on that basis that we’re keeping the scheme voluntary. We will be working to ensure that the check test process remains an effective test of ADI competence.”
