New National Register of LGV Instructors

Mar 09, 2017
The Road Transport Industry Training Board (RTITB) has recently launched a new National Register of LGV Instructors (NRI) endorsed by the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency).

Its aim is to promote higher standards of LGV instruction and increase the number of registered instructors, in turn helping to improve the LGV training pass rate.

The NRI aims to provide a single, national register for the road transport industry following the announcement of the closure of the DVSA’s existing register on 31 December, 2016. RTITB’s existing register of professional LGV instructors will also close. The new NRI became live on 1 January, 2017.

“The new NRI will be run on a not-for-profit basis for the road transport industry, by the industry, which is best placed to develop a relevant and robust register for the future,” said Richard Brewer, Manager of the National Register of LGV Instructors. “By working together, the register will improve the standards of LGV driver training, while providing an opportunity to further expand the register and professionalise the LGV training industry as a whole.”

“DVSA will be part of the governance committee overseeing the delivery and development of the register and associated examination,” said Mark Winn, DVSA’s Head of Vocational Policy.

Although the register will be operated by RTITB, the NRI will operate as a completely separate entity and information in the register will be held and managed on a totally independent database. RTITB will be regularly audited by the NRI governance committee to reassure members of quality, standards and neutrality. Further information can be found at: www.lgvinstructorregister.com.
