  • A full UK or European Union/European Economic Area unrestricted car driving license, held for at least 4 years.
  • To have not been disqualified from driving at any time in the four years before you train
  • The ability to be able to read car number plates at a distance of 27.5 meters (90 feet)
  • To be a 'fit and proper' person, in the opinion of the DSA
Any motoring or non motoring convictions will be taken into account when you are assessed for the inclusion on the Register. You'll also need an enhanced Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) check.
To qualify as an ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) you must pass 3 Tests:
  • Part 1 – IT based theory test and hazard perception test.
  • Part 2 – A practical test of your driving ability.
  • Part 3 – A practical test of your ability to instruct.
You must pass the Part 1 test first, and then you have up to 2 years after that to pass Parts 2 and 3.
Part 1 – Theory

Working at your own pace, go through all the theory workbooks and manuals. There is also a hazard perception test in part 1, in which you'll need to identify hazards in video clips.

For your part 1 on average the amount of 1-to-1 hours with your BDS training instructor is 5.

The format is similar to the learner drivers' one that you have already taken, however this is to a much higher level. It is in two parts, the first part consists of 100 multiple questions and you need to answer 85% or more correctly. The second part of the test is the hazard perception, you will have to watch 14 video clips and identify all developing hazards in a satisfactory timescale with a score of 57 or more out of a possible 75. You must pass both parts of this exam at the same time to pass the test.
Part 2 – Driving Ability

This module consists of practical in car training sessions and this is designed to bring your driving ability up to DSA standard. This will be on a 1-to-1 basis with your instructor; this will be in preparation for a one hour practical test of driving ability.

The part 2 test is where you will demonstrate a high level of driving, anticipation and consideration of other road users. You can start this while you are preparing for part 1.

On average this is 10 hours.
Part 3 – Instructional Ability

This module consists of a minimum of 40 hours practical in car training sessions with your trainer. This is designed to develop your instructional technique and will give you all the tools to be able to teach your pupils to DSA standard.

This is where you will need to demonstrate your ability to instruct pupils at different stages in their training. This is assessed in two consecutive half hour sessions by the examiner, who acts as a pupil in a role play situation.

You must pass both half hour sessions to complete the part 3 test.

After passing all 3 parts of the DSA test, you'll be awarded a green badge indicating you are a fully qualified instructor.
