Updates on ADI part 3 tests and standards checks

  Updates on ADI part 3 tests and standards checks DVSA has reviewed changes made to ADI part 3 test and standards checks. Keeping the current changes DVSA is keeping part 3 and standards check at 45 minutes across Great Britain.

There is no evidence that the shortened test has resulted in any detriment to standards.  Feedback from examiners carrying out the tests is that the shorter period has led to a more focused assessment. DVSA will also continue to ask that your pupil who you bring to these tests must be at least partly trained.  This is because beginner lessons tend to have a greater proportion of stationary instruction, and we need to be able to assess the instructor’s ability to control the lesson in a moving environment.

You are fully aware Learning to drive is an expensive undertaking and that you want to save them money and get them to test standard as quickly as possible, after all who wants to be waiting months and months and months to get to Driving test standard? The fact that you don’t want to listen to your instructor, or the most annoying part, is when they think they know more than you and as a result they feel they don’t have to do what you’re asking them.
