The DVSA has launched a refreshed Safe Driving for Life website .

It is designed to help all road users throughout their driving life.

For learners and new drivers there is help with the theory test, but also help with preparing for all tests and life on the road.

Learners will also be able to share their theory test revision progress with ADIs through the website. This feature is available free to ADI, though pupils ned to purchase  a DVSA learning subscription. DVSA has developed a new test readiness tool that shows you and your pupil when they’re ready to take their theory test.

Incentives

The website is free for you to sign up to, and you can invite your pupils to buy a learning subscription. You’ll only be able to use the feature if your pupil buys a subscription and chooses to link to you via the website, and share their progress. Your pupils will also have the option to share their progress with a family member or a friend by linking them to the website.

As an ADI, you will get points based on the length and type of subscription your pupils buy. You can redeem these points for Amazon gift cards. This is to encourage you to prompt your pupils to use the site, which is full of useful product and services.

Evolving

DVSA Learning Zone is also being merged into the Safe Driving for Life website. If any of your pupils have an existing Learning Zone subscription with three-months or less to go, they will continue their theory test revision on the current DVSA Learning Zone. This will ensure they do not lose their progress because DVSA is unable to transfer their progress across to the new site. Anyone with a 12-month subscription will be emailed instructions on how to move to the new site so they can start using the new features.

Your help

DVSA is working with NASP and a small group of ADI volunteers and their pupils to test the new functionality in a live training environment. In the meantime, the new features are now live for you to test with your pupils.

But the DVSA also want you to contribute your thoughts and ideas about the site. Using these and others changes over time, the site will continue to evolve and update as necessary.

You can give your feedback via the site or email it to feedback@safedrivingforlife.info.
