The Training Process from the Beginning:

First thing is to apply for your disclosure.

Secondly once your disclosure certificate has arrived you complete your registration process to apply for your Personal Reference Number which will eventually become your ADI number once you fully qualify.

Once you have obtained your Personal Reference Number you can book your first driving instructor test.

To train up to become a driving instructor you must pass 3 tests:

Become an ADI

Part 1 - A Theory Question and Hazard Perception Test.

Preparation is via self study with a DVSA Driving Instructor Theory CD Rom and Hazard Perception CD Rom.

Part 2 - An Advanced Driving Test.

Preparation is via in car training assessments and remedial action to build up both your on road driving skills and mental preparation.

Part 3 - A Test of Instructional Ability.

Preparation is via in car training instructional techniques and use of a Trainee Licence to teach pupils.

Once you have passed all 3 tests you are now know as a Fully Qualified Approved Driving Instructor or ADI for short.
