The Driving Instructors (Registration) Bill is a private member’s bill introduced in the House of Commons by Sir David Amess (Conservative) under the ten minute rule. It completed all its stages in the Commons without amendment and is scheduled to have its second reading in the House of Lords on 11 March 2016. 

The Bill would simplify the registration of driving instructors in Great Britain by allowing a driving instructor to request voluntary removal from the register of driving instructors and by simplifying the process for re-joining the register where an instructor’s registration has lapsed for between one and four years.  The Bill is supported by both the Government and the Opposition.
