Educational check tests to be suspended.

Hi all.
I recieved  a letter from the DVA this morning. On the letter was a section titled "EDucational Check Test"

I qualified in November 2007, and as yet have not had an educational check test, let alone my actual check test.  The contents of the letter have made me feel unsure as to where I stand now.

Quote...
"In order to allow a more focussed and targeted retraining scheme for driving examiners, the Agency's strategic board recently gave approval for the immediate suspension of the educational check test.

The educational check test is not contained within the legislation governing ADI registration and is not a statutory requirement.  The test up until now has been conducted by Supervising Examiners as a "feedback" session for newly qualified instructors who have been on the register approximately 8 months before they are invited to their first full test after one year.

New instructors will now be scheduled for a check test within 4 years of entering the register.  It is hoped however that resourses in the future will allow a 1st check test to be conducted some time earlier than this.  All tests now will be assessed on a pass/fail basis and re-tests scheduled accordingly.

As ADI section prepares the check test programme a few months in advance there may be some instructors who have already recieved an invitation to attend for a test.  They should attend as normal."


Thoughts on this would be welcome.

Jonny

Re: Educational check tests to be suspended.

Nice of them to let us know about this major change in policy, and I thank you for bringing it to my attention.

I will contact the DSA in the morning to quantify this change, which is NOT mentioned in any communication I have received, and I run an ORDIT training establishment!!!  roll  roll  roll, we will see, once again thanks for the heads up on this, will reply with the DSA official line as soon as possible

Re: Educational check tests to be suspended.

looks to me like they are officialising what normally seems to happen any way.... that peoples first check test is a real one and it is often more than a year after qulaifying.

As i see it you will get a check test some time before Nov 2011..... but some people have waited even longer than 4 years for theres anyway.

Dont worry about it.. Let others do that for you.

Re: Educational check tests to be suspended.

Do changes in policy apply across the board eg: is it the same in England as it is in Northern Ireland where JohnnyG is based?

Re: Educational check tests to be suspended.

Sorry people, Should have mentioned that this is from the DVA in Northern Ireland.  Not sure if the DSA are doing the same thing though.
