Territorial Army

Volume 476: debated on Tuesday 20 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the required complement of Territorial Army driver training instructors is; and how many such instructors there are. (206209)

There is a requirement for each TA unit to have one driving instructor on strength with two in infantry battalions. This equates to a requirement for 128 driving instructors in TA units. This requirement may be filled by either TA or regular personnel within the TA unit.

There are 66 members of the TA whose current role includes Defence Driving Instructor duties. This is supplemented by the use of contractors to deliver driver training.
