Detail of outcome
This consultation is about introducing a compensation scheme in connection with The Driving Instruction (Suspension And Exemption Powers) Act 2009.
The act introduces a power for the Driving Standards Agency to suspend the approval of driving instructors in rare situations where they pose a danger to the public. This will usually be where the instructor is:
- convicted of a serious violent or sexual offence
- delivering tuition of a dangerously low level
Before the suspension power can be used, a compensation scheme must be in place for instructors whose approval to instruct is suspended but not subsequently removed.
The proposals are about the system for making a claim for compensation and how compensation will be worked out.
