Qualification needed to become a driving instructor

To legally operate as a driving instructor in the UK you are required to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) qualifying examination and hence the reason for the above course. The DVSA are the Government body who regulate driving instructors in the UK. But don’t worry if you are not academically minded the exams are very practically based. The driving instructor qualification process is in 3 parts:

Part 1 is a PC based multiple choice ADI theory and hazard perception test similar to the current test for learner drivers but you are required to answer 100 questions (not just 50) on a broader set of subjects and you need to score 57 as opposed to 44 on the hazard perception part.

Part 2 is a driving test, again similar to the current test for learner drivers but you are only allowed to make 6 minor faults (not up to 15 as on the L test). After passing Part 2 and completing the necessary training you can start your job as a driving instructor on what is called a Trainee Licence.

Part 3 is an instructional ability test, the examiner will watch you give a driving lesson to a real learner and depending upon what they see will determine if you pass this third and final part of the qualification process.

Earn while you learn on a Trainee Licence

After only a few months you could be operating as a driving instructor on a Trainee Licence with 2nd2None Driving School. This option is even more important to have following the introduction of the New Part 3 Test at the start of 2018. Only a genuine, well established and reputable driving school like 2nd2None Driving School can be trusted to provide the required on-the-job training you will need to succeed – don’t waste money on one of the many phoney driving schools who are just trying to sell you an instructor training course with little chance of success or career prospects thereafter.

Get more for your money

You will receive a minimum of 70 hours of one to one in car training with your dedicated instructor trainer with ongoing support from our customer service team. In most cases, 70 hours of training is more than your average training provider will give you, but we want to make sure you succeed and not just for you to qualify but also to become a great teacher as well. 

There is also the opportunity to earn while you learn with our funded trainee licence, so you don't need to delay getting your new career underway. Please ask our customer service team for more details on the trainee licence scheme.

With our driving school you will find that our support doesn't stop once you have qualified as a driving instructor. Our support team will help you become established in your local area and work with you every step of the way to develop your career as a fully qualified driving instructor. 

Business Development

One of the biggest grips driving instructors have is the lack of business support and training they receive from their training provider. This can leave them scratching their heads when it comes to running their business and doing things like accounting. 

We provide all our trainees with one to one business training based at our Dorset offices once you have completed your required 40 hours of Part 3 training.

Sue Squires

I have recently passed my Part 3, the final part of my ADI exam. Steve Steele was my trainer and I cannot recommend him highly enough. He has an affable, easy going nature, but a very professional approach. We swiftly, but thoroughly covered all the PST’s. He made sure that I fully understood what was required and gave me useful tips along the way. He took the mystery out of this exam and supported me throughout. He is an excellent trainer. Thank you Steve!

Wezley Evans

Professional company Great training and looked after very well, good communications and qualified within months of starting. Looking forward to working along side the team.

I chose 2nd2None Driving School for my training as I felt confident after talking to them and reading online reviews that I would achieve my goals.

James Brimicombe

  Hi everyone, my name is James and I am training towards my PDI in the Exeter area. I had previously worked in retail for which I found the hours anti social and the workload stressful. Whilst looking for new employment I was recommended by a friend to try 2nd 2none. After my initial meet and greet with James and Holly I soon realised that this company has it's workforce in mind and strives to keep them informed and happy. Changing a well paid and successful career was a worry but my two trainers; Nigel Paice and Steve Steele are both competent and knowledgeable. The training was laid back, direct and informative. If I can replicate their style in any way I will be well on the way to a great career, I cant thank them enough. 

Lorraine Rydon

With the help of my trainers Stuart and Steve, I today passed my part 3 qualifying exam and became a fully fledged ADI. My trainers showed absolute professionalism and patients in providing me with a structured and tailored program of training, together we achieved this result. I can not recommend 2nd2None enough, their trainers and the office staff were great. Thank you so much.

Why Did You Choose This Driving School For Your Instructor Training?

The options were vast,and I felt welcomed immediately. I was introduced to the training team, where they clearly set out my training program together with my options of further employment,which provided me with confidence.
