How do I become a driving instructor?

 

Training as a fully qualified driving instructor isn’t an easy process. However, as long as you’re prepared to work hard and  dedicate the time and apply yourself to the training you have a great chance of passing.

 

There are 3 exams you need to take and pass each one within 3 attempts. You also have 2 years to complete all 3 exams from the date you pass the first exam

 

Part 1 – Theory and Hazard Perception Test

ADI part 1 is similar to the learner driver theory test, however, as a more experienced driver you will be tested on more subjects.

 

Part 2 – Test of Driving Ability

ADI part 2 is again, similar to the learner driver practical driving test, however as an experienced driver you will be expected to have a greater knowledge and understanding.

 

Part 3 – Test of Instructional Ability

ADI part 3 will test your instructional ability and teaching skills. For this part of the test you will be observed by an examiner as you train a pupil.

You can pass all 3 exams in as little as 3 months, however, typically trainees take between 6 months – 12 months if they have an existing job and are doing their training in between.
