As of April 1st, 2019, the ORDIT scheme has changed. The previous scheme hadn’t been changed for 10 years; and therefore, some of the assessments and practices were no longer aligned with the National Standards for Driver and Rider Training and the National Driving Standard.
Official Register of Driving Instructor Training (ORDIT) scheme ensures that anyone wanting to become an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) is given a solid base of training, from which they can go on to teach learner drivers the skills they need.
To become an ORDIT trainer you must be an ADI and have gotten a grade A in your most recent ADI standards check. After passing the ORDIT assessment, you can register to be listed on the GOV.UK site for driving instructors qualified to teach others to become ADIs.
Here at ABC Driving School, we have been anticipating these changes to come into force, and we are pleased to announce that along with over 30 years of instruction experience, Nigel Fisher is also ORDIT registered. Passing the required examinations and criteria to join this voluntary registry highlights our aim to provide the best possible service for our clients.
Joining the registry allows us to officially prove that we meet the DVSA standard to provide high-quality training for driving instructors, and our details are listed on the GOV.UK service to find approved driving instructor training courses.
Due to the 1st April changes to the scheme, the minimum standard to join the scheme has risen, ensuring that all ORDIT registered instructors are of the highest possible standard. This only strengthens the superb standards we aim to provide at ABC Driving School. New instructors are going to be taught by the best and shown exactly what the best practices in the industry look like.
Becoming ORDIT registered is a way in which we can improve the standard of teaching in the industry, in order to keep our roads even safer.
At ABC Driving School, we want to continue to be the best, in order to train the best.
