Become Part of the (DVSA) ORDIT Scheme

  • Coaching and Instructional Techniques

  • Lesson Introductions

  • Lesson Planning

  • Reflective Logs and Evidencing Sheets

  • Trainee Guidance and Driving School Policies 


      About the ORDIT Scheme


ORDIT was set up by the (DVSA) Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency with the backing of major driving schools, and the support of the DIA Driving Instructor Association, MSA Motoring Schools Association and NJC, National joint Council of ADI’s to regulate and evidence standards of training providers to ensure that training is of the highest of standards to prevent those that are not ORDIT from providing substandard ADI training to the public wishing to gain entry on to the ADI register.

Everything should be transparent to the customer, this means good record keeping of trainee development plans and a complaints procedure can be launched if necessary, oppose to training with a non-ORDIT registered trainer.


The benefits of becoming part of the ORDIT scheme, is that in my very own opinion it gives PDI trainees a piece of mind and reassurance that you have met the required standard to be entered on to the ORDIT register.   With this in mind, the DVSA list only ORDIT registered trainers on the website so that you can be found, and in addition to this, that they only recommend an ORDIT registered training provider for anyone taking Part 2 and 3 in particular.  

Becoming a fully qualified Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, (DVSA) ORDIT instructor trainer couldn’t be easier with Option2drive Driving Instructor Training Academy (DITA). 

You MUST have achieved a grade A on your last Standards Check before you can apply.

Phase 1

This part can be done using a variety of home study resources, and other supporting materials which you can find of benefit. You can arrange the DVSA inspection (test) when you're ready by visiting, and downloading the relevant application form, "Official Register of Driving Instructor Training ORDIT Trainer Assessment".  Your dedicated coach (trainer) will provide time with you to ensure standards are fully met, either by online virtual classroom sessions or in-car training or a combination.  Usually 2 hours of support for this part.  


You will be provided with underpinning knowledge and understanding to create an effective learning environment, so you are able to deliver a structured syllabus which is align to the National Standards for Driver and Rider Training.


Phase 2


Your coach (trainer) – local to your area, will prepare you for a 1-hour consolidation assessment prior to inspection (test), again usually via online platform, or in-car training, and provide you with everything you need to know about the DVSA inspection and testing criteria, going over all relevant documentation to ensure ORDIT code of practices are adhered too, to the highest of standards where possible.

The DVSA Inspection (test)

The supervising (examiner) on-test will observe a real 60-minute instructor led session, taking place with either a PDI in the instructor seat giving instructional ability training to "trainer" in-role, or a real learner driver with the ORDIT (coach) in the rear seat observing this live session.  Please bare in mind that your coach has no input in test conditions.  

Your Training

  • Highly focused on developing and building upon existing knowledge, before introducing driving lesson subjects

  • Supported with additional learning materials for each in-car training session you complete

  • Mapped against your own individual learning plan and progress record

  • Reflective of both the DVSA requirements and the establishments commitment to improving road safety

After passing the DVSA ORDIT inspection, you'll be entered on to the ORDIT register, provided with an application form in which you can apply for your trainer badge.
