In order to train you must:

Have had a full UK licence for at least 3 years
Have no more than 5 points on your licence
Not been banned from driving within the last 4 years
Be a ‘fit and proper’ person (in the opinion of DVSA)
You must pass a DBS (Enhanced Level Disclosure and Barring Service) check – formally known as a CRB Check

 

The training

The training course has 3 parts and you need to pass 3 tests in order to become a fully qualified and Approved Driving Instructor.

Important – All exams are conducted by the DVSA (Driver Vehicle Standards Agency)

 

Training Part 1 – ADI Theory

This test is in 2 parts – Multiple Choice and Hazard Perception.
You need to have passed both parts before moving onto Part 2
You can sit this part as many time as it take you to pass.
We will provide you with all the materials that you require for Part 1.
We will provide you with support for home study.
Upon successfully passing this part you have 2 years to complete Parts 2 & 3.

 

Training Part 2 – ADI Driving

You must have passed part 1 before you can sit the Part 2 test.
While learning part 1 you will be learning Part 2 at the same time.
This part is made up of your driving skills at an advanced stage.
Your driving is 60 – 70 minutes long.
Most PDIs require around 20 hours to successfully pass this part.
You are only allowed 3 attempts for Part 2.

 

Training Part 3 – Instructional Ability

The new test will use the SC1 form to assess your ability as a trainer. Instead of the examiner acting as a pupil in a role play scenario, the candidate will be expected to provide their own pupil. This can be anyone up to and including a PDI (Trainee Instructor) who has NOT taken their Part 2 test. Full licence holder, new driver or novice, the candidate will then be expected to deliver a relevant, adaptive and structured lesson while being observed by the Senior Examiner (SE).

The driver is expected to demonstrate understanding, be aware of and agree to the ‘job share’ between trainer and trainee, as well as demonstrate learning taking place. The Trainer is required to adapt the lesson to keep it relevant and suited to the ability level of the trainee.

Upon successfully passing Part 3 you can then apply for your ADI badge.
Also you will be offered an opportunity to join our school which will provide full support and pupil supply.
