22-year-old Paul Hodgson from Whiteley has now become one of just 13 qualified Approved Driving Instructors (ADI) currently aged 21 or 22 in the country.
To become an ADI you have to be 21 or older and should have had a full licence for at least three years to supervise a learner driver. In addition, Paul had to complete 52 hours of training with an instructor and complete three tests.
The first, similar to the normal driving theory test, consists of 100 questions. The second is a driving exam but with the threshold being lowered to allow for just six minors or less. Then, Paul took a driving instructor on two mock lessons where the instructor first pretended to be a new driver and then a driver who has passed.
The standards set by the DSA but Paul says that he looks forward to his driving lessons and says he is ready to teach anyone. He says he enjoys teaching and has been interested in driving for a long time.
