Have you got any availability....?

Posted 23 May 2021 — Anyone least we know we are all facing similar demands!

Personally, it isn't the demand that is challenging. It is the lack of light at the end of the tunnel; and the lack of movement from the DVSA.

Changes to the theory test booking system sound like reduced rather than increased availability. Feet on the ground at test centres (in our area at least) seem to be at an all-time low. Test booking seems to be near-impossible!

The DITC has written to NASP, via the current Chair Peter Harvey, MSA, to ask what they are doing to challenge the DVSA and what their take is on the current situation. We will share any replies. For now, it is left to instructors to weather the storm, manage expectations and maintain a balance.

We look forward with interest to the promise of an update from Loveday Ryder, DVSA, and more importantly signs of action from DVSA recruitment and training.

Regarding the DITC, we are working hard to unite various areas and our ADI & website expert Neil from SitePage is busy restructuring the site,, to make it easy for you to access the information when you need it. There will be the first of our own podcast articles posted in the next 24 hours to enable you to keep in touch, and we continue to work with Terry Cook from The Instructor Podcast to deliver updates.

If you are finding things difficult or just need a chat, either contact us directly at the DITC, or check out the excellent support channels from ADINJC, DIA and MSA who always have people willing to listen and help.
