[holding answer 10 December 2008]: Any courses attended by Driving Standards Agency (DSA) managers are designed to fulfil the objectives of the DSA Leadership and Development programme, by providing a common standard of leadership in DSA and enabling managers to identify their own development needs. The contribution of individual courses to these wider aims is kept under regular review.
