From the DVSA:

On 28 April 2021 the new Safe Driving for Life website went live. Since then, the site has been viewed over 2 million times. More than 10,000 eLearning subscriptions have been purchased via the site.

Valuable feedback has been received from many of you and National Associations Strategic Partnership (NASP).

The trial has led to improvements in the quality of the content, and now the plan is to promote the site more widely.

Improving the content

The DVSA sees that the clarity of the information on the site as essential. It needs to be accessible, accurate and that it is a trusted source for instructors, learners and their friends and families.

The reviews and feedback ADIs and users have provided has been an important factor in this.

Working with TSO – DVSA’s official publishing partner who manage the site – and NASP has led to updates and improvements ton he content.

The site will remain under constant review. It will continually develop by adding content, learning modules and functionality.

A valuable resource

Following these improvements to the site the Chair of the National Associations Strategic Partnership, Peter Harvey, said:
“NASP have been pleased to be involved in the recent updating of the Safe Driving for Life site. It is much improved in content, for the general public, learner drivers and instructors alike. We feel it should help to improve knowledge both pre and post-test and are happy to be involved in its continual development and updating.”

Testing the new features

Working with instructors and pupils, trials of new features have been taking place.

If you are using the new feature that allows learners to link to their instructor via the site, DVSA want to hear from you. Share your stories and experiences at: feedback@safedrivingforlife.info.

This will help with the continued development and improvement of the site.

This feature is free for you to use if your pupil has an eLearning subscription. The idea is to help ADIs monitor their pupils’ driving theory knowledge and understanding. This information can then help you tailor future lessons.

What’s next

“We are thrilled with what has been achieved so far and look forward to the site’s continued success,” states the DVSA. They are “planning to promote it more widely and encourage all pre-learners, learner drivers and their friends and family to use it”.
