Want to be a Driving Instructor?

To Join any ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) Course you need to have held a driving licence for at least 3 ½ years before you commence training and be over 21. You’ll need to be able to read a number plate from 27.5m/90ft.

You will also need a commitment to learning and a desire to work with others, as being a driving instructor is very much a people job. That means keeping calm, maintaining authority and generating trust.

The ADI exams are in three parts:

1. Computer-based theory and hazard perception test
2. Practical driving test
3. Practical test of teaching ability

You must pass each part before the next exam can be taken and qualification must be within two years of passing the first part.

Natasha Simper of Britannia Driving School: “The Britannia Driving School course has been specially prepared by our experience and highly qualified instructor trainers. The emphasis is on making candidates an excellent driving instructor, not simply good enough to pass. Britannia Driving School trained ADI’s, are recognised as some of the best in the industry ”
