Choosing an instructor;

DSA in Great Britain and DVA in Northern Ireland approve instructors, who are then able to teach learner drivers in return for payment. These instructors have their standards checked regularly.

Approved driving instructors (AdIs) must;

  • Pass a series of difficult examinations
  • Reach a high standard of instruction
  • Be registered with the DSA Or DVA
  • Display an ADI’s certificate while giving professional driving instruction (except in Northern Island)

These professional driving instructors will give you guidance on;

  • Your practical skills
  • How to study and practise
  • When you’re ready for your tests
  • Further training after your practical test under the Pass Plus scheme (not applicable in Northern Island)
