LGV Instructor Training

There have been recent changes to how the LGV register of instructors is organised. The register is now managed by the National Register of LGV Instructors (NRI) and the National Vocational Driving Instructors Register (NVDIR), who are industry-led bodies. This allows the DVSA to focus on supplies for driving test needs.
