Instructor Training Part 3

Instructor Training Part 3

The 3rd and final part of the qualifying tests is the Ability to Teach test.

As previously stated, you can do this in 1 of 2 ways. Straight in or via the PDI (Pink Licence) route.

You can apply for a trainee licence if you:

  • Have passed your ADI part 1 test in the last 2 years
  • Have passed the ADI part 2 test
  • Have had at least 40 hours of training from our qualified ADI in providing driving
  • instruction, recorded on the ADI 21T declaration form
  • Are eligible to take the ADI part 3 test
  • Training
    To get the Pink licence you MUST carry out 40 hours of structured instruction – Once you have this licence, we will help you get the pupils so you can practice and get ready for the Part 3 test.

    We are here to help and support and guide you throughout the whole process – from that initial application to us to getting your ADI Badge.

    If you fail the ADI part 3 test or you don’t book it in time
    If you fail the test, you must undertake an additional 5 hours of training.

    You have 3 attempts to pass the test and if you fail your third and final attempt then you will need to wait 2 years from the date that you passed the Part1 test and start the whole process again starting with a new DBS check.

    If you don’t book the test within 3 months of getting your licence, you must take 5 hours of extra training before you book the test.
    Each time you do 5 hours of extra training, record it on a new instructor training declaration form.

    There are some rules for using your trainee licence
    You must:

  • Be a ‘fit and proper’ person
  • Get the required amount of supervision or extra training while your licence is still valid
  • You are not allowed to advertise your services.
  • Displaying your licence
    You must display your trainee licence on the nearside edge of the front windscreen of your car while you give driving lessons.

    Changing your driving school
    Should you wish to join us, under your PDI licence, you must apply for a new licence, there is no cost attached to this. We will assist, organise and submit all the required paperwork and carry out all of the administration when you change schools whilst on a trainee licence. In the meantime you can continue conducting driving lessons until your new licence arrives.

    You should send your old licence to DVSA as soon as you get the new one.
