The purpose of this section is to guide you through the process of becoming a Driving Instructor.

 In order to be an Instructor you must:

  • Be over the age of 21.
  • Have held a full licence car for at least 3 1/2 years.
  • Never been disqualified.
  • Have received no points in the last 5 years.
  • Have no criminal convictions.
  • Be able to pass a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

The official guide to this process is The ADI 14 Guide

The first thing you will need to do is pass a DBS for Driving Instructors

Having read the guide and passed the DBS check, your next step will be to start the process Becoming a Driving Instructor

To become an ADI you must pass three tests:

No. 1. Driving knowledge. Part 1

You can take as long as you want for this. There is no clock. Once you have passed this you then have two years in which to qualify.

No. 2. Driving ability Part 2

This is a one hour test driving to a high standard with no more than 6 driver faults. The clock has been ticking since you passed the Part 1. You now have three attempts in which to pass. Professional training will help a lot.

No. 3. Teaching ability Part 3

This is a one hour test with a real pupil. You are still on the clock and have three attempts in with which to pass. It is very unlikely that you will be able to pass without some professional help.


When everything's said and done: if you want it and put the effort in you should be okay. At driving-pro we have a top team of trainers who will work hard for your success. There are no guarantees but when was the last time someone cried tears of joy and jumped up and down with delight for the work that you have done.
