The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has announced the launch of a new information pack for newly-qualified driving instructors.

The glovebox-sized pack contains cards, leaflets and booklets containing useful information about being a driving instructor.

The move by the DSA to produce the pack follows feedback obtained from experienced ADI’s on what they would have wanted when they commenced their driving instructor careers.

The Registrar of Approved Driving Instructors for the DSA, Charles Morton said: “We have listened to feedback from ADIs, which indicated that when they first qualified, they would have found a pack like this useful, as it contains information about how to make the most of their new career and help their pupils”.

Morton continued: “The pack is designed to be glovebox-sized so that ADIs can have it readily to hand. They will also be able to add any ‘pull-out-and-keep’ brochures we publish in Despatch magazine, and there is room for them to insert their own useful information”.

The DSA will start sending the new pack to newly-qualified ADI’s from Monday, while ADI’s who have registered within the last six months will be sent a pack on request.

Those ADI’s requiring a pack can email adireg@dsa.gsi.gov.uk or write to the DSA at DSA, The Axis Building, 112 Upper Parliament Street, Nottingham, NG1 6LP.
