DVSA Approved Driving Instructor in WorcesterThinking of becoming a driving instructor?

You will need to pass the ADI 1, ADI 2, and ADI Part 3 Examinations followed by a Standards Check (usually) within 6 to 9 months of qualifying.

XT Driving can provide independent training on all elements of the test.

 

The ADI Part One is the theory test examination. 

This is an extended version of the learner theory test.


The ADI Part Two Driving Ability Exam

The ADI Part 2 is a 60 minute test of your driving ability, which takes place on all road types, all manoeuvres, and the emergency stop need to be demonstrated. Learning to do these manoeuvres correctly to the DVSA requirements forms the very basis of the following examination (Part 3 Instructional Technique). A high standard of competence is expected.

You are allowed only 3 attempts at this examination, after which you will have to wait until two years from pass date of your Part 1 theory exam to resit.

The national pass rate for this year is 56%.

The ADI Part 3 – Instructional Ability Exam

This is a test of your instructional ability, where you will be asked to demonstrate two levels of instruction in one of 10 pre-set tests (PSTs).

The National Pass rate for this examination is 34% – Again previous years statistics can be seen here

Interestingly even the DVSA own youtube video shown below does not show a successful candidate!

 

 

The list of PSTs and the marking sheet is available here: PST Marking Sheets

You are allowed only 3 attempts at this examination, after which you will have to wait until two years from pass date of your Part 1 theory exam to resit so it is vital that you receive correct training for this examination.

The exam is changing the format to align with the DVSA Standards Check and role play will no longer form part of the test.

You will need to provide a driver.  

This will take place from 2nd of October 2017.  You will then no longer need to undertake a SC within 6 to 9 months of passing.
