The Process - 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 before you can move onto the next. Qualification must be within two years of passing the first exam. Our job is to prepare you for all 3 exams by giving you a high standard of training.
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 Test: Driving Ability. This is a driving test and lasts for about 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 reverse around a corner and reverse park your vehicle. There is also an independent driving part to this test which generally lasts approximately 10 minutes.
Part 3 Test: Instructional Ability. 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 is split into 2 parts with each part being 30 minutes long, Phase 1 and Phase 2.
It's important to note that the Part 3 test is changing as of the 02nd October. The assessment and marking criteria will change so it aligns itself with the current Standards Check. Our training and support packages have already catered for these changes.
