HOW TO BECOME A DRIVING INSTRUCTOR

To be able to teach driving and become an approved driving instructor, you will need to take a three part training session.

ADI PART ONE – THEORY TRAINING AND HAZARD PERCEPTION FOR ADI’S

The Phase 1 to becoming a Driving Instructor covers theory and hazard perception training.

We have designed a thorough program that will aid you to work through all the relevant learning material at your own pace. Extensive training is given in house and online in order to maximise your knowledge which therefore ensures you are ready for the test, as well as improve any areas we feel that requires additional mentoring.

The test consists of 4 way multiple choice test, you need to get 85% to pass. Phase 1 of the ADI tests your knowledge of driving theory, rules and regulations and driver training and hazard perception test. By using our professionally designed ADI training course, you can be sure you have all the topics covered and build your skills through a stable foundation.

ADI PART TWO – ADI’S DRIVING ABILITY

With the theory and hazard perception knowledge from the Phase 1 of your ADI Training completed, you will now put it into action during the in-car training sessions of Phase 2 of your ADI Training.

The phase 2 of the ADI training focuses on your driving ability. Our team of expert instructors will guide you over a series of practical driving sessions custom tailored to meet and exceed the standard set by the DVSA. Towards the completion of your phase 2 training sessions, we will arrange your ADI Part 3 training program.

EARNING WHILST LEARNING

After completing the phase two of your ADI training and passing the qualifying examination – the driving ability assessment, you can apply for a trainee licence (PDI or The Pink Badge) to help you prepare for the Phase 3 of the ADI Training. By having a trainee licence, you can give driving instruction with pay, but you the licence only be valid for six months and should not be an alternative to being a full pledge ADI. Additionally, to qualify; you must complete 40 hours of the Phase 3 training.

ADI PART THREE – ADI’S DRIVING ABILITY

Phase 3 of the ADI Training involves both theory training and practical work, which will aid you in developing your teaching ability in general. You will undergo multiple training sessions from our trainers. In order to fine tune your knowledge and understanding in driving and teaching you will need to participate in a series of coaching ranging from realistic role play to road safety awareness.

Following the Phase 2 ADI training, we will provide you with the necessary 40 hours of training to entitle you to apply to the DVSA for a pink badge. You will have the choice to apply for a trainee licence if you want or continue straight through to your Phase 3 test. Our training officers will aid you in choosing which option suits you best.

Passing the Phase 3 of the ADI Training test will automatically elevate you to an ADI status – a fully Approved Driving Instructor! All your hard work, perseverance and commitment have paid off and you can proudly say you have completed a life changing journey.

TESTIMONIALS

I joined SmartLearner as a Trainee Instructor 6 years ago and never looked back. Never short of work friendly team with a real focus on customer service.

- KEVIN

I had a bad experience with a national driving school, only interested in taking my payment. So wanted to move to a company that cared about its instructors. SmartLearner certainly has the instructor interest at heart.

- TETE

I passed my test years ago, but hadn’t driven since and needed some refresher lessons. The instructor at smartlearners was very patient and encouraging and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. Thanks to SmartLearners I’m now back on the road. I couldn’t recommend smartlearners more highly!

- XAIN

The Service provided by Smartlearners was excellent, from booking my first driving lesson to being on the road. The instructors was patient, polite and punctual, with communication skills being exemplary throughout my driving skills.

- WAID

Thanks to smartlearners for helping me pass my driving test. The facilities offered by the school were good with clean cars, mod con driving apps, responsive booking service”. “The service provided by the school was brilliant from booking my first lesson to passing. The instructor put me at ease by being patient. I would recommend the school to others as they use modern technology to teach

Drivers can be hit with £100 fine for headlight failures this winter, as cars 'cannot see you'.

In severe cases, road users could also be hit with a temporary driving ban.

Make sure your headlights are working before starting a journey. You can check these by looking at the reflection in windows, or asking a family member or neighbour etc.

You may feel fine to drive the morning after a fun night out but, it is important to know if alcohol is still in your system. As this puts not only yourself at risk but other road users and pedestrians too. 🍺
