To become an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) you must be over 21 years of age and have held a full clean driving licence for 4 years. An ADI is not allowed to receive more than 6 penalty points on his/her licence. An accumulation of 6 or more penalty points will result in his/her name being removed from the ADI register, thus loosing their licence to give tuition for payment. REMEMBER, IT IS AN ARRESTABLE OFFENCE TO GIVE DRIVING TUITION ON PUBLIC ROADS FOR MONEY OR MONIES WORTH WITHOUT A VALID ADI CERTFICATE OR A VALID TRAINEE LICENCE.
To qualify as an ADI you will be required to pass three tests. Part one is an ADI theory test, Part two is a test of your driving ability and Part three is a test of your instructional ability. Candidates for all ADI qualifying tests are required to present either:
- both parts of a current style, two part driving licence (photocard and paper counterpart); or
- licence in another form together with a current passport
Candidates for the part 3 test also have the option of producing their trainee licence instead of a passport to accompany a non-photocard licence. Failure to produce photo ID will result in the test not being conducted.
IN ADDITION TO THIS, FROM 12 MARCH 2007 ANYONE APPLYING TO BECOME AN ADI WILL NEED A CRIMINAL RECORD DISCLOSURE. THIS IS TO INCREASE THE SAFETY OF VULNERABLE LEARNER DRIVERS, PARTICULARLY TEENAGERS.
