Automatic Driving Instructor Training

What does an automatic car offer?

As there is no clutch pedal, an automatic car may be easier to drive – especially on more congested city roads – and if you are having difficulties managing the gears in a manual car, you may find that taking automatic driving lessons is a faster route to your licence. Some people just prefer automatic transmissions for city driving as busy traffic means more frequent gear changes for manual drivers

Automatic Instructor Training Course

Train to become a driving instructor in an automatic car

It is important to have an understanding of what is required when thinking of becoming a driving instructor.

The first thing you will need to do is to apply to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) to become an ADI. To do this you will need to inform them of your current driving licence and any offences.

You must have held a full licence for at least 3 years.

You must be over 21.

Your application can be refused if you have:

  • been banned from driving
  • 5 or more penalty points
  • been convicted of any non-motoring offences

You will also need to have a Criminal record check or CRB check.

Your application is unlikely to be accepted if you’ve been:

  • convicted of a sexual, violent, financial or drug-related crime
  • banned from working with children

This consists of a two-part test. The first is multiple choice. The second part is hazard perception.

You are expected to have a far more thorough understanding of the areas covered than that of a learner to be able to teach and this is why the ADI theory test is more in depth than the standard test.

We can provide you with all your study material required along with valuable advice from one of our ADI trainers regarding the theory test.

This is where you will need to prove that your driving is of standard to be able to understand the level a pupils needs to achieve to pass their own test.

This test again is a more comprehensive test to that of the standard learner test as you have to show you can not only drive a car with a full understanding of all the rules and regulations of the highway code but that you can also predict and react to situations that may prove hazardous when teaching.

Prior to taking Part two, you should have had approximately 12-15 hours of one student only practical lessons to prove that you are not just at the standard of passing but to a standard of true understanding and competency.

This is the final and hardest part of the ADI testing program. In this part you must prove that not only can you teach to a high standard but that you also can adapt a lesson to suit changing circumstances as well as comprehend and explain risk assessment throughout your whole lesson.

We recommend the best way of doing this is to apply for a PDI (Probationary Driving Instructor) certificate (known as a pink badge). Whilst you are practicing, this will give you the ability to Earn While You Learn. You can then start having paying students whilst you perfect your teaching technique. You must pass your part three within 6 months and will have to have a further 20 hours instruction.

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

  • lesson planning
  • risk management
  • teaching and learning strategies

You must score at least a minimum of 31 out of 51 to pass. Once passed you can then be registered to obtain your Approved Driving Instructor Certificate.

All our lessons are on a one student per lesson basis.
