Frequently Asked Questions

To become an ADI In Corby and across the UK you need the following:

  • For at least 3 and a half years out of the last 6 years you need to have held a full UK or EU driving license
  • To be able to read a standard number plate from 90 feet away, you can use glasses if they are required
  • To have less than 6 points on your current license
  • To have no convictions on record in the 10 years that would prevent you from being allowed on the Driving Instructors Register
  • To enjoy working with people and being in social settings

It can take anywhere from 3 months to a year to become a fully qualified driving instructor, depending on your work and family commitments. The average time for most people is around 9-12 months.

There are 3 exams you will need to complete and pass to become a qualified ADI:

  • Part 1 – Theory Test (100 questions and a 14 clip hazard perception test)
  • Part 2 – Advanced Driving Test (Advanced one hour driving test)
  • Part 3 – Teaching Ability Test (An observed in-car driving lesson)

The fastest way to start your new career as an ADI is to enroll in an intensive learning course, allowing you to pass your part 1 and part 2 tests as soon as possible and then taking your 40 hours of part 3 training. After this you can then start giving paid instruction on a trainee licence issued by the DVSA. You must independently apply for your trainee license.

It’s important to find the right instructor training course for you, one that can fit around your current commitments and lifestyle. Not all ADI training courses are the same, so research before you commit to a course. Once you have booked your course you should be supported through the process by your training provider, but here is a quick breakdown of the process:

  • Apply for a DBS Check
  • Once received, apply to the DVSA register, you must do both of these before you are able to book any further tests
  • Take the ADI Part 1 Theory Test
  • Take an ADI Part 2 Advanced Driving Test
  • Take up a six months trainee license (this is optional)
  • Take an ADI Part 3 Teaching Ability Test

The majority of driving instructors in the UK are self employed either working solely for themselves, or under a franchise. There are a small amount of driving instructors that are employed by driving schools but they are the minority.
