Lapsed AVS

If conditions 1 to 3 or not met before the end of September then AVS status will be "lapsed"  and a £100 reinstatement fee will be required if conditions 1 to 3 are met by the end of December.


If conditions 1 to 3 are not met by the end of December then AVS status will remain lapsed, until Conditions 1 to 3 are met and an individually designed CPD remedial programme is successfully completed. Reinstatement will incur a fee of £250.


If AVS status remains lapsed for 5 years or more, both the theory and practical exams will have to be retaken and all conditions met before AVS can be reinstated. Advice should be sought from the Education Committee.
