Find a driving instructor in Blackpool
The DVSA have recently given driving instructors the option to opt-in to display their standards check grade on the ‘find your nearest driving instructor’ service on GOV.UK.
We want consumers to be able to make a more informed choice when they choose a driving instructor.
The “Find your nearest driving instructor” service was officially launched in July 2011. Since then, over 27,000 ADIs have signed up to appear on the service – around 67% of all ADIs on the register.
The use of this service among consumers has been steadily increasing too. It was viewed around 760 times a day in March 2017.
Why its important to the customer who wants to purchase driving lessons?
The service displays the driving instructors name, email, and phone number to learner drivers looking for driving lessons in Blackpool or whatever area you are from. The listing will also display if the driving instructor has;
- agreed to abide by the voluntary ADI code of practice
- committed to doing at least 7 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) each year
Driving instructors can choose whether or not they want their standards check grade to be displayed.
Driving instructor grades
There are currently 3 grades;
1. A – The highest grade possible.
2. B – The second highest grade
3. FAIL – The instructor has failed the standards check and would be asked to re-sit the check test exam again.
Recently 2 of our Blackpool driving school instructors received a Grade A… Well done Paul and Andrea! We are awaiting the results from our others instructors who are shortly due a check test but no doubt with the help and training they get from our driving school training they will get top marks.
