Be Wiser Insurance

Bogus driving instructors are to be targeted as part of a new campaign from the Driving Standards Agency (DSA), the body has announced.

According to the DSA, the best way for motorists to check that their roads teacher is fully qualified is to look for a green or pink certificate displayed on the windscreen.

The body added that only those who are officially approved and are listed on its register can receive money for lessons.

Indeed, it may be that those who are not listed are a danger to other drivers and risk invalidating their car insurance policies.

"They have not been assessed by us ... And they will not hold the correct insurance, so will not be covered in the event of an accident," commented ADI registrar Charles Morton.

Meanwhile, the BBC states that two Welsh driving test centres, in Holyhead and Colwyn Bay, are to close, meaning local motorists will have to travel to Rhyl or Bangor for their examinations.
