Trainee Driving Instructor Licence

Taking the stress out of running your school

Once you have passed your ADI part 2 test you have the option of working under the trainee licence scheme. (you must not give driving lessons for reward unless you have the appropriate licence).

The trainee licence allows you to:

  • gain experience teaching real learners in preparation for your ADI part 3 test
  • get paid for your lessons
  • lasts for 6 months

In order to apply for the trainee licence you must:

  • have undertaken 40 hours of ADI training from a qualified Instructor. These hours cannot be more than 6 months old and must be recorded and signed on the ADI 21T declaration form
  • have passed your ADI Part 1 test in the last 2 years
  • have passed your ADI Part 2 test

Once you have your trainee badge you have 2 further options regarding training before you take your Part 3 exam.

Extra training - you MUST undergo at least a further 20 hours of training which is signed off by your trainer on the ADI 21AT declaration form.

Supervision training - you are supervised by your trainer for 20% of all the lessons that you give. You must keep a record of all the lessons you give and the hours that your are supervised. These hours are logged on to the ADI 21S declaration form.
