Adi Check Test - Standards Check

Standards Check Tests regularly cause a feeling of doom and dread among instructors. The simple truth is that a check test is just a driving lesson.

If you were told by your Supervising examiner that your instruction was not up to standard I would strongly recommend that you seek some training before your next check test.

 Driving Instructor Training have instructors on the ORDIT register (Official Register of Driving Instructor Trainers) who specialise in this type of work.


We have the knowledge and experience to accurately assess your performance and not only ensure that you pass your next check test but also raise your grade.

Training can take the format of role play or an observed lesson; in this case you will receive a full debrief and a written report.

The amount of training you will need depends upon several factors, these can only be correctly determined after the first session.

Check test preparation and advice can be for either the ADI check test or the Fleet Register check test.

We have helped many ADI’s to change their grade


Training is priced at £40 per hour and is usually in 2 hour sessions.

So many inexperienced instructors fall foul of the SE on their first check because they fail to appreciate the skills needed for an excellent grade . . . even more worryingly, a high percentage of experienced ADI's are failing to make the grade by giving sub standard instruction and for treating it as a part 3 test, which it is not.

What happens at the standards check

A Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency examiner will watch you give a normal driving lesson to your pupil.

The examiner will look for evidence that you meet the national standards for driver and rider training.

What you’ll be marked on

You’ll be marked on 17 areas of competence that are grouped into 3 categories:

  • lesson planning
  • risk management
  • teaching and learning skills

The 17 areas of competence are listed in the ADI standards check report form, which the examiner will fill in during your check.

You’ll get a score from 0 to 3 for each of the 17 competencies, which are added up to work out your grade.

After you give the lesson, the examiner will discuss your performance and give you your grade. This will take about 15 minutes.

You can take your trainer or mentor with you, but they can’t take part in the lesson.
