The NRI, also known as the National Register of Instructors endorsed by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). The National Vocational Driving Instructor Registration (NVDIR) are also approved and recognised by the DVSA.
Developed by the industry, for the industry, the Register was established and launched in December 2016. They were replacement for the DVSA’s voluntary LGV Instructor Register and the RTITB Register of Professional Instructors.
The not-for-profit Register is operated by RTITB. Also, they are supported by Logistics UK and the Road Haulage Association (RHA). The NRI also issues AFV (alternatively fuelled vehicles) training certification to drivers. They also support those delivering training and/or assessment to Category BE licence holders.
