Standards Check Essentials

This online course will help you prepare for an upcoming standards check. It covers what the DVSA is looking for and how the standards check will be graded. It will also cover what considerations to make when planning the session, tips for the day and additional resources to help you get the grade you want.


This course is an overview of the standards check from general standards check information, how best to prepare and what is expected of you on the day, plus lots of other useful information along the way.

The course is split into lessons, some of which may be broken down into topics depending on the amount of content. There will be quizzes throughout the course and these may be single, multiple choice, essay or fill in the gaps answers.
