Official Register of Driving Instructor Trainers (ORDIT)
This is to certify that: Britannia Driving School Having met the criteria laid down in respect of:-
Premises, vehicles, training and administration by the Driving Standards Agency, and having agreed to abide by the ORDIT Code of Practice, is now included in:
“The Official Register of Driving Instructor Training”
To be on the Government ORDIT Register, as Britannia Driving School has been since ORDIT was formed more than a decade ago, examiners from the Government’s Driving Standards Agency regularly inspect our facilities and thoroughly examine the training provided by our Training Officers.
ORDIT was formed to help people like you locate instructor training facilities and training of the highest standard. You are therefore strongly advised to train only with an ORDIT trainer.
The goal of ORDIT is to protect the public from substandard instructor training, misleading marketing/selling and other unethical business practice.
If an organisation or individual trainer isn’t ORDIT accredited it’s because they do not want to be bound by the ORDIT code of practice-the ORDIT code of practice is there to safeguard the interest of the trainee instructor. On the other hand, it’s simply because they couldn’t reach the required training standards.
There are numerous driving instructor training organisation and individuals in the UK, but only a select few are ORDIT registered.
Britannia Driving School is also a member of the Motor Schools Association, the Driving Instructors Association and founder member of The Driving Schools Association.
