About the exam you need to pass
ADI and Trainee BadgesBefore you can operate as a driving instructor in the UK you have to undertake a CRB check, be accepted onto the ADI Register and pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) qualifying exam. The qualifying exam is made up of three parts; A theory (Part 1) and driving test (Part 2) similar to the current tests for learner drivers and a practical test of your ability to instruct (Part 3) where the examiner expects you to give them a driving lesson as he or she plays the role of a learner driver.
