The DVSA is beginning Standards Checks again from April 2024. Why not make sure yours is as stress free as possible by investing in some time now to ensure you are delivering high standard lessons all the time.

The DVSA placed a moratorium on Standards Checks between September 2023 and March 2024 in order to focus examiner time on reducing the huge backlog of L tests. However, from April, Standards Checks are back on the agenda!

Are you looking for some training for your ADI standards check? You have come to the right place!

  • Are you forward thinking and aiming for a Grade A in your next Standards Check (SC)?
  • Or maybe you have failed a Standards Check and are now looking for some extra training?
  • Find out how to make every lesson a Grade A standard!

Invest some time (and money) to guarantee your future as an ADI!

We love it when someone comes to us when they know their Standards Check is coming up and wants to make sure they are fully prepared for it. Sadly however, all too often, we get contacted by an ADI after they have failed one (or even two) attempts!


We will tailor the training to what you need. It can include all or just some of the following:

  • A review of the ADI’s previous SC (if applicable) followed by a discussion about the next one – what is the ADI planning to do? What pupil will they be taking? What route are they thinking about?
  • Role play training mixed with demonstration so we can assess your teaching ability. This would all be followed up with a written report.
  • Watching you deliver a one hour lesson to one of your pupils with follow up verbal and written feedback afterwards.

We can tailor the training to your needs and budget, ranging from 2 hour sessions to half (3 hours) or full day (6 hour) sessions

Why not get in touch with us and have a discussion over what you would like the training to include. You can book your Standards Check training by calling us on 07983228452 or email

Maybe you have a different training requirement? Here are the other options we can provide:

I had failed two Standards Checks so I was looking at possibly not being able to continue as an ADI. I arranged to have two sessions with Kevin where he role played a learner. He was invaluable in highlighting areas where I needed to either improve or change my approach so I was able to pass next time. Great and realistic instruction, thank you so very much.

I failed my first Standards Check after qualifying and felt so embarrassed and thinking I wasn’t up to this job. When I spoke to Kevin he just took all the embarrassment away and made me realise I can do it. We arranged for me to observe some of his lessons and then for him to observe a couple of mine. We also did some role play and with the help and guidance he gave me I’m pleased to say I passed next time!
