Tell us about the demand for driving lessons and other challenges you are facing

Today (27 September) DVSA is launching the a survey to tell us about the changing needs of your business and pupils.

This survey includes questions from the previous ADI demand surveys which help us to forecast the demand for tests and has been widened to find out how the current economic situation is affecting your business.

How to take part
The survey is open until midnight on 10 November. It should only take 10 minutes of your time.
We know how busy you are helping new drivers prepare for their test, so we are really grateful for your time.
Start the survey now.

What it’s all about
We previously ran the ADI demand survey this survey replaces in July 2021 and January 2022 and learned a great deal of valuable information from you.
View the results from the previous surveys.

DVSA will run this extended survey every 6 months to monitor how demand for lessons is changing and learn about other challenges you’re facing.

This time we have added some new questions to help us to understand:
-how the move to electric vehicles is changing your business
-how you are managing pupils who may be pausing training while waiting for their test appointment
-how you are using our services to swap driving tests – this will help us explore what changes we can make to the service to better meet your needs and what controls we can set to help us identify individuals and companies profiting from selling driving tests

We’ll also be running a separate survey for businesses who are using our services to book and swap large amounts of tests. To find out how more information about how they use the service now and also get their views on ways we could improve it.

This survey will go live at the same time as the ADI demand survey. This will be sent to the main email address used by these businesses to make their driving test booking.

If you work for one of these businesses and have access to the business email address, you may receive both surveys. If so, can you just share your feedback with us by completing the ADI demand survey.
