What is The ADI Standards Check?

ADI 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.

However it is nothing to be concerned about - The DVSA are simply checking that you are upholding the standards expected for driving instructors rather than just sit there, take the students money and then pay no attention to what they're doing.

What happens at the ADI CHECK TEST?

What happens at the ADI CHECK TEST

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.

So What will you be marked on?



ADI Standards Check Test Marking

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.
