It is very satisfying taking on a complete novice, and then going on a journey with them to help them acquire the confidence and skills to support them with gaining their full driving licence. A driving licence is the first step towards independence for most people and helping someone to gain their licence may actually help them get that dream job!

We provide you with online and one-to-one training to help with your Driving Instructor Training in Southampton.

Part 2 – ADI Driving Test

Is a test of your driving ability. The test lasts for approx.1 hour and includes the following:

-Eye test
-Full range of Manoeuvres
-Driving on a variety of roads including motorways.

Our training will offer between 10-15 hours to cover all these areas, starting with an assessment drive to access your current standard of driving. We will then be able to focus on the areas highlighted by the assessment drive, and the training will be tailored to individual needs.

Part 3 – ADI Instructional Ability Test

This is a test of your ability to instruct pupils. The test lasts approx. 1 hour and during the test the examiner will assume the role of the pupil. The test will assess the value of the instruction you give & your ability to pass on knowledge.

We offer 40 hours of in-car training and will help you to train using the knowledge gained in part 2, you will also be able to sit in on live lessons to watch teaching styles.
