NRI Celebrates One Year

Happy one year anniversary to the National Register of LGV Instructors!

We’ve had a fantastic first year, with over 500 LGV instructors registering with us and over 20 exam centres (and counting!) becoming approved.

We’ve also been busy on the road at various events to promote the benefits of the NRI for both instructors and employers and have loved having the chance to meet with current and new partners. We’d like to take this time to thank everyone who we worked with throughout 2017 and say how much we’re looking forward to working with you throughout 2018!

Here’s a snippet of NRI throughout 2017…

NRI Registered Instructors: Over 540 instructors joined the NRI

NRI Exam Centres: 20 Exam Centres registered with the NRI, with more centres expected to become approved throughout 2018.

Examinations: Over 103 examinations carried out.

Office Closure: Monday 11th December 2017

Due to severe snow and ice the office will be closed all day on Monday 11th December 2017. This decision has not been taken lightly but we feel it is in the best interests of safety for our staff.

The good news is that we are able to continue working remotely despite the office closure. We will be available via e-mail, and we will be diverting the office phone to Richard Brewer, NRI Manager’s personal mobile to handle as many of your calls as we can during this time.

We will be doing our best for you, but won’t be at full service until the office re-opens, which we hope will be Tuesday.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused and thank you very much for your patience and understanding. Please do call or email us and we will get back to you as quick as we can.
