Driver2020 is a real-world trial of interventions designed to help newly-qualified drivers improve their skills and safety when they begin driving post-test. The research project is launching on 7th August. It forms part of the Government’s Road Safety Strategy, first mentioned in the 2015 Road Safety Statement. The research is being led by TRL (Transport Research Laboratory) and DIA have been working closely with them as a key partner.
The DIA are helping with delivery of one of the interventions being trialled, and now are asking for your help by encouraging your pupils to take part.
For more information about how to sign up for the trial please visit the Driving Instructors Association web site, click here for details
This is a national research project for learner drivers under the age of 25. To take part in the trial learners will receive:
- aditional training and e-learning
- They will be paid to complete surveys
- Prize draw

Mr E on Stockport Rd, Manchester was really interested in our payment plans and prices. Having a competitively priced franchise and car hire seemed important to him. He contacted out driving instructor helpline on 0800 08 38 441 to speak to Andy on a number of occasions – that’s important to us, we understand that things have to be right and encourage all new course joiners to ask questions.
Mr E joined earlier this month. His ORDIT registered trainer will be John Warriner.
We’re expanding north of the border and are proud to include Dundee and our new addition Cheryl B to the team.
Cherly joined the Silver driving instructor training course in April this year and here she is just 12 weeks later starting to build her diary and earn while she continues to learn.
Another new driving instructor to join our successful team in Warrington, Cheshire.
Welcome Ms A who got in touch this week. Her ORDIT registered trainer will be Vicki Hulse.
Great to have a new instructor ask us to train to be a driving instructor. Mr Y was highly recommended to us, we talked through how we’d like to train him and looked at the options of who his trainer would be, looked at the best course to suit his needs. He opted for the Silver course after telling us he wasn’t undeterred by exams and didn’t feel the need for all the guarantees the other one to one courses offered.
Welcome Mr Y.
Mr B’s driving instructor training course is going really well. He joined the Platinum course in January this year under the supervision of his ORDIT registered trainer, Greg Davidson.
Passing the P1 test in April was straightforward in April followed by his P2 later that same month. All P3 training was completed by July and the same month he started on his trainee driving instructors licence.
Andy B in Crewe, Cheshire & Andy H in St Helen’s, Lancashire both passed their Part three test of instructional ability this week. First attempt.
Andy H started his trainee licence in May this year and Andy B in March.
Full marks Mr B in Aberdeen who got the all important pass mark at Part 2 test of advanced driver training. Looking forward to watching you progress on your Part 3.
Surepass ORDIT registered trainer, Greg Davidson
Congratulations Sarah H on becoming a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor, we’re absolutely thrilled for you.
Sarah joined the Platinum driving instructor training course in March 2017 under the watchful eye of her local Surepass senior training manager, Vicki Hulse. After successfully passing her part one and part two tests she became a trainee driving instructor in February 2018.
Well done Sarah.
When you’re looking at driving instructor training courses keep an eye on the expiry date of the course.
Mr Thomson in Hull got in touch after his course with another company expired after just 12 months. He had to go overseas and when he got back he found he could no longer continue with his training.
All Surepass driving instructor training courses are valid for 2 years. The Platinum training course also has a lifetime guarantee; if the instructor hasn’t qualified within 2 years then we’ll provide the Silver course free of charge for life*
