WHAT IS THE DSA ORDIT SCHEME
The Driving Training Centre is a member of the ORDIT (The Official Register of Driving Instructor Training). This is the government body (Driving Standards Agency) responsible for maintaining training standards within the industry. To become a member of ORDIT, The DTC Instructor Training Team passed a vigorous training assessment examining the standard of training we provide. This is an ongoing process, giving you further assurance of our commitment to delivering high quality training. Anyone can offer instructor training; not everyone is ORDIT registered.
Following discussions between DSA and representatives from the Driver Training Industry it was agreed that both instructors' and the public's best interests would be served by a single Register or Directory of suitably qualified and inspected trainers and establishments.
The ORDIT Register contains a list of establishments, set out in Post Code order, that following inspection, have satisfied the inspection criteria under a voluntary scheme of minimum standards set by the ORDIT Management Committee.
Those that are seeking ADI training or retraining can approach any of these establishments in the confidence that they have reached the standards set down. Nonetheless, inquirers are advised to contact more than one to compare what they have to offer in order to decide which one most suits their needs.
To be on the ORDIT register, training organisations have to pass stringent inspections every 2 years which cover many aspects from business practise through to training techniques and materials used.
Training with an ORDIT registered organisation gives you the peace of mind that should things go wrong, you may take your complaint to the ORDIT Management Committee who can help you get the matter resolved.
