DVSA Update: Tell DVSA what it’s like working as an ADI in 2023

Since June 2021, DVSA have been sending surveys to driving instructors roughly every 6 months to find out what it’s like working as an approved driving instructor (ADI).From now on, this will be an annual survey. DVSA will run it throughout June of each year.

What’s in the survey

The survey includes questions to help DVSA and ADI associations to understand more about:

your business – including things like lesson prices and the type of car you teach in

managing your business – including things like how many pupils you’re teaching and any challenges you’re facing

your work – including things like how satisfying you find the job

your skills and the resources available to you – including things like the support you get from DVSA

your continuing professional development

your health and wellbeing

The survey does not ask for your name or ADI number. It’s anonymous and individual responses will not be shared or published.

How to take part

The survey takes about 10 minutes to fill in. It closes at 11:59pm on 30 June 2023. By filling in the survey, you’ll be helping to give DVSA the fullest picture of the driving instructor profession in Great Britain’s history.

What happens next

DVSA will publish a summary of the survey results on GOV.UK and send you a link to view them later in the summer.

They will use the information you tell them to help them plan and improve our services for ADIs and learner drivers.
