The National Register of LGV Instructors was established and launched in December 2016 as a replacement for the DVSA’s voluntary LGV instructor register and the RTITB register of professional instructors, both of which closed at the end of 2016.
The vision for this new, DVSA endorsed not-for-profit register is to further professionalise the HGV/LGV training industry by offering a single register that meets the needs of the whole industry.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) endorse and oversee the new register through their role on the governance committee, whilst RTITB operate it. The register has the support of the Freight Transport Association (FTA)and Road Haulage Association (RHA), who are members of the governance committee.
The objectives of the register are:
• To agree and maintain a set of standards for the skills and underpinning knowledge required to be an effective LGV instructor
• To improve the standard of LGV instruction available
• To increase the number of registered LGV instructors
• To contribute to an improvement in the national pass rate of LGV vocational tests
• To publish test pass rates for candidates trained by instructors on the national register
