June Newslink Update

Have you downloaded this month’s issue of Newslink?

An MSA GB member exclusive, Newslink keeps you fully informed on all the industry news, training opportunities, and occasional road tests on relevant cars. With regular contributors including the MSA GB Board and the DVSA, Newslink doesn’t just cover national stories, it also has its finger on the pulse of local and area issues.

This month’s top stories include:

  • Waiting times woes… continue. Despite its best efforts, the DVSA has told NASP that long waiting times for L-tests would continue –and it blamed examiner strikes for undoing its work.
  • Drop the D: AI taking on ADIs. Could AI enter the world of ADIs and teach learners better than driving instructors? We put the theory to the test, with an experienced ADI taking on AI.
  • A new index of ADI groups and associations has been added to Newslink – so it’s time to let us know about your group.
  • Pay per mile coming? A new report has said the UK should charge motorists on a per-mile basis in a major overhaul of the UK’s motoring tax system.
  • We’ve got some great practical advice from Steve Garrod in the latest issue of Newslink on how to help your learners respond in the best possible way when they’re faced with the arrival of the ‘blues n twos’.
  • Who’s responsible? Why a major change in the way the law looks at road traffic collisions could send shockwaves through the motoring world.

Keep an eye out in our next issue for details of our upcoming East Coast events starting on the 9th October. MSA GB East Coast has secured discounted standards check training sessions with the award-winning Knowledgeable Instructor Training.
