We have this afternoon received the following from Jacqui Turland, Registrar –
“Further to my email of 1 September 2017, I wanted to let you know that we have yet to gain Parliamentary approval to introduce the change, but are still hopeful that we will be able to do so by late October.
Having written to all PDIs with a test booked up to 13 October, we will now been contacting all those with a test booked up to 27 October. We’ll be able to give them more options on what they can do, such as postponing their test to a later date or keeping their test date and taking the test in the current format. They’ll be advised to speak to their instructor trainer to discuss the best option for them.
We will also be contacting all those on the Official Register of Instructor Trainers.
I will, of course, update you as and when I have more clarity on an implementation date.”
