Driving Instructors Association Charter

learner driver

The BPA and Driving Instructors Association (DIA) are working together to provide learner drivers with access to car parks, so that they can develop skills during their training which will reduce damage in car parks in the future. This is a great opportunity for us to ensure safer learner drivers in car parks.

The Charter

We believe in raising standards for both the driving instructors and the parking sector and in delivering a more professional service to the public. Providing the environment for learner drivers to develop their skills and confidence in using car parks needs to be seen in the context of delivering a better and fairer service to all users.

The BPA and DIA have created a Charter to help car park operators to provide a safe environment for learners to gain knowledge about car park use.

The objective of this agreement is that learner drivers need to be able to have access to car parks, in order for them to develop their skills as drivers, but provide operators with the opportunity to control this access.
