Driving Instructor Training
If you’re looking for a new career as a Driving Instructor, then Angie from Belt Up Driving School can help. I currently have a 100% first time pass rate for Part 3 of the training process. My bespoke training packages are tailored around you. I can also guarantee you that my training is second to none and all of my students have passed their exams and are now enjoying their new career with a Belt Up Driving School Franchise. I am an ORDIT registered training provider and passionate about my work.
To become a qualified driving instructor, you first have to pass three exams. These are known as Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
Once you’ve passed your Part 2, the ADI driving test, and completed 40 hours of your Part 3 training, you can apply for a Pink Trainee Licence. This has the extra benefit of you earning a salary while you’re preparing for your final exam, the Part 3, and allows you to practice with pupils, being far more realistic.
Part 1 - Theory and Hazard Perception
This is a computer based test which consists of 100 multiple choice questions. There are 4 categories and you need to score a minimum of 20 out of 25 in each category, the categories are:
Traffic signs and signals
Car control, pedestrians and mechanical knowledge
Driving test, disabilities, and the law
Publications and instructional techniques
Hazard Perception Test – You will be shown 14 video clips, each containing at least one developing hazard. You need to identify the hazards as they develop. You need to get a minimum of 57 out of a maximum 75 marks to pass.
Part 2 - Driving Skills
This is a driving test and lasts for approximately 1 hour. You must be able to demonstrate a high level of driving ability, anticipation and consideration of other road users, expert car handling and control, correct road procedure and driving in an environmentally friendly manner.
You will also complete a set of manoeuvres such as parallel park and reverse park your vehicle into a parking bay. There is also an independent driving part to this test which generally lasts approximately 20 minutes whereby you could be expected to follow a sat nav.
Part 3 - Instructional Techniques
This test is to assess the quality of your instruction and your ability to pass your knowledge on to your pupils. The test lasts for 1 hour and you have to deliver a real lesson to one of your clients in a client centred way. An examiner will sit in the back of this lesson and assess your skills and ability. You will be assessed on the following:
Teaching and learning strategies
To pass, you must score a minimum of 31 out of 51. There are 17 sub-competencies and you will get a score from 0 to 3 for each competency and to achieve a pass you must score a minimum of 31 out of 51.
No qualifications or previous experience necessary.
You must have held a driving licence for at least 3 years prior to you applying to become an ADI. You must not have more than 6 points on your licence.
You have to be able to read a number plate (new style) from 26.5 metres, glasses or contacts are allowed. You have to complete a CRB/DBS check.
You will sit the 3 exams at your local ADI test centre. Part 1 is a computer based Theory and Hazard Perception Test. The Part 2 is a test of your driving ability and the Part 3 is a test of Instructional Ability.
You must pass each exam in order to move onto the next. Qualification must be within two years of passing the first exam.
