DVSA Standards Check Training

The Road Traffic Act 1988 (as amended) states that continued registration as an ADI is subject to the condition that they will undergo a test of "continued ability and fitness to give instruction", known as a standards check (or check test), as and when required by the registrar. The standards check allows one of the agency's examiners to check that your instruction is up to the required standard, by accompanying you while you conduct a normal lesson.

Here at FIVESTAR Driver Training, we offer specialist training to help you to not only achieve that standards check test pass, but to also help give you the skills required to stay ahead in the driver training industry.  Our ADI Trainers are fully qualified to deliver your training and are of course ORDIT registered.  

If you have a forthcoming standards check or would like to update or improve your teaching skills please call us on 01375 350012 or 01708 405353 for an informal chat.

Criteria for Scoring

Assessment is against three broad areas of competence:

Lesson planning

Risk management

Teaching and learning strategies


                                             ADI Grades

Score            Description.                                                                                   Grade

| 0 - 30. |     unsatisfactory performance                                                            Fail


| 31 - 42 |   Sufficient competence demonstrated to permit or retain entry on

                  the Register of Approved Driving Instructors.                                  Grade B


| 43 - 51 |   A high overall standard of instruction demonstrated.                     Grade A


Note: If you score 7 or less in the Risk Management section the standards check will be deemed

substandard and a Fail. Also, if the examiner believes your behaviour is placing you, the pupil or any third

party in immediate danger they may stop the lesson and record an immediate Fail.
