DVSA 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 16 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 (see below for details).
Part 3 is an instructional ability test, which dramatically changed on the 1st January 2018. As a result the examiner now requires to 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 LDC. 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 LDC 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.
With LDC you can also qualify without this Trainee Licence thus enabling you to keep your current job until you pass if you so wish. Please note all our Trainee Licence positions are reserved for those people who train exclusively with us.
DVSA ORDIT Approved Driving Instructor Training
The DVSA (i.e. the awarding and examining body) recommend you should only take training to become a driving instructor from organisations and trainers who are on the Official Register of Driving Instructor Training (ORDIT) such as LDC. ORDIT represents the absolute minimum qualification your trainer should have if you want any chance of passing the above ADI examination. But equally as important is the quality of the support, resources and training programme provided by the ORDIT accredit training centre itself.
Winners of the first industry award for Training School of the Year
The award was presented by Gareth Llewellyn the CEO of the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) to Paul and Gemma McArdle of LDC driving schools at the Driving Instructors Association (DIA) annual conference. This driving school industry award was recently introduced and LDC were the very first recipients which just goes to show the incredible reputation LDC has built up over the last 30 years. There are other non-industry awards provided by car magazines and the like but they have little sway within our industry.
The award recognises the outstanding quality of the training we provide and the driving school franchise we offer as voted by their members (over 12,000 independent driving instructors) and verified by an expert panel with the DIA. So if you are looking for the most certain way to become a driving instructor and have a prosperous new career you will love, then look no further.
