ADI Driving exams Testimonials
“5 & 5 over the moon. Thanks Graham for all you taught me. David was trained by 1st 4.”David Holness ADI

” I found Graham on the internet for a rescue package part 3 ADI.
He has extensive knowledge of driver training. He was very helpful for my part 3 ADI test. I wish I had found him for the training rather than a rescue package. He has an ability to pinpoint problems and address them and helped me to succeed”
– Michael Abdey – MA Driving School


To become a Driving Instructor you will be required to pass 3 exams commonly known as Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

Part 1 theory test is for potential driving instructors and is a multiple choice test of theoretical knowledge and will also include a computer based hazard perception test. All resource materials and workbooks necessary to pass this test can be supplied.

Part 2 driving test for driving instructors is one of the driving exams and is known as the test of driving ability it is conducted on a variety of roads encompassing most traffic conditions. It includes 4 manoeuvres and an emergency stop and lasts at least one hour.

Part 3

The new Standards Check has replaced the old part 3 role play exam in December 2017. Your exam will now consist of you giving a lesson for an hour with a DVSA examiner watching you from the back seat giving a driving lesson to either a learner driver or full license holder. You will need to be fully prepared for this exam and have training that is up to date modern and matches the DVSA National Standards. It is essential that you choose your training wisely and it is recommended by the DVSA that you use a Grade A ORDIT registered trainer. Do not waste your money by buying cheap poor quality training full of empty promises.

Each exam has to be taken separately starting at part 1. You can have as many attempts at part 1 as you wish, but once you have passed part 1 you have two years to complete part 2 and 3 and are only allowed three attempts at each. If you were to fail the 3rd attempt at either the part 2 or 3 exam, you will have to wait two years from the date you originally passed part 1 before you could try again. Part 1 would then have to be retaken.
