Becoming an ORDIT Approved Instructor

The Official Register of Driving Instructor Training, or ORDIT, was set up by the DVSA to protect the public from poor driving instructor training and improper business practices. ORDIT is managed by the DVSA and members failing to maintain the required standard may be removed (or feel obliged to resign) from ORDIT.

About the ORDIT scheme

The aim of ORDIT is to ensure:

  • members provide excellent quality training by qualified trainers from premises that are inspected and meet satisfactory standards.
  • registered training organisation members all agree to abide by the terms and conditions of ORDIT.

In order to be on the ORDIT register you have to be an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) for 12 months and pass the qualifying ORDIT test.

If you intend to work for yourself then you will need to obtain both premises and trainer’s certificates. Both the trainer and premises are inspected biannually for quality assurance.

Further information and a full set of documentation can be found on the DVSA website:
