The DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) endorsed National Register of LGV Instructors (NRI) has now released the examination standards and approved the first examination centres in preparation for it’s official opening on 3rd January 2017. The NRI is supported by the FTA (Freight Transport Association) and RHA (Road Haulage Association), and aims to promote higher standards of LGV driver training and increase the number of registered LGV instructors, in turn helping to improve the LGV training pass rate.
The NRI provides the road transport industry with a professional, national LGV instructor register and has incorporated the elements of both the DVSA and RTITB LGV instructor examinations, which were considered to be best practice, in order to provide the industry with a robust examination and register which LGV instructors can be proud to be part of. You can see the full examination standards here.
The first NRI examination centres are also coming on line and already there is coverage in the North, South and Midlands, so that people wishing to become LGV Instructors do not have to travel far to be examined. In the new year NRI is expecting to approve a further 15-20 examination centres. See the examination centres here.
“We have been overwhelmed by the positive response from industry to the news about the National Register” says Richard Brewer, Manager of the National Register of LGV Instructors. “the questions we have had, suggestions and contributions to date have all been constructive and have really added value to the process of creating an LGV instructor register which works for the road transport industry and is run by the industry itself through the governance committee”
