The DVLA director of personnel, Avril Beynon, said, "We are particularly proud, not only to be the first government agency to offer Institute of Management programmes to our staff, but also of the commitment from our staff in wanting to develop themselves.

DVLA chief executive, Clive Bennett, who presented the awards said, "I'd like to congratulate the staff members involved for their dedication to this programme and for spending a considerable amount of their own time, balancing work and home commitments, to achieve this milestone 'first' for any government agency.
