Driving Instructor and safety

Driving instructors who pose a significant threat to public safety will face immediate suspension under new legislation that was put forward in Parliament this week. Under the current legislation, it takes a minimum of 45 days to prevent an instructor from continuing to give paid driving instruction. However, from 13 July, the registrar of approved driving instructors will have the power to immediately suspend the registration or trainee licence of an instructor who presents a significant danger to the safety of the public. Road Safety Minister Mike Penning said: “Driving instructors play a vital role in helping to ensure Britain’s roads remain among the safest in the world. “The vast majority of instructors meet the extremely high standards we require of them, but in the very rare cases where an instructor presents a significant danger to the public, it is right that we take prompt and effective action to protect learners and other road users.” The registrar is likely to exercise the suspension power in cases where instructors have been convicted of a violent or sexual offence or are delivering tuition of a dangerously low standard, while the formal removal or revocation processes are being completed. Instructors retain the right of appeal against a decision to remove them from the register of approved driving instructors or to revoke their trainee licence. The instructor will be able to apply for compensation in respect of the period of suspension if they are not subsequently removed from the register.

Theory test change

New changes to UK Theory Test
Wednesday, 11 January 2012 10:34
ADIs/PDIs will need to make sure their pupils are aware that the theory test will encounter some changes this month. As of the 23 January 2012, new theory tests will be introduced using questions and answers that the public will not have had access to, making any previous theory test ‘Q&A banks’ redundant.
Since the theory tests started in 1996, the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has published the questions and answers from the question banks for all categories of tests for cars, motorcycles, lorries and buses.
However, the DSA announced last November that it was to stop publishing the multiple choice questions and answers, with unpublished questions being used from January 2012.

After 23 January, the questions a candidate will be asked on test will not be exactly the same as those in their learning materials. Questions will be drawn from new ‘live’ theory test question banks, which will not be published.

DSA’s chief executive Rosemary Thew said:
“The reason behind the move is to stop candidates from simply memorising theory test questions and answers and learning by rote. …”This approach to learning will help candidates to gain a better knowledge and understanding of driving theory which will help them respond correctly to the new, re-worded live questions used in the actual test.”

The DSA have published more help for learner drivers taking their theory test, with The Official DSA Theory Test for Car Drivers DVD-ROM. This new software has been totally remodeled and is the most, user friendly to date. The new layout makes it a lot more noticeable that the DSA expects you to learn the material rather than memorise answers, by implementing a study, practice, test yourself strategy, for best results.

New features have also been added to the software so candidates can:

Study background information on every topic, presented in an easy-to-remember way
Customise their practice by topic to see how much they’ve learnt
Sit unlimited mock tests which offer the closest experience to the real test
Monitor their progress at each step to find out exactly where they can further improve so they can tailor their revision
