Part 3 - Driving Instructor Training with 4front Driving School

What happens during the test A Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency examiner will watch you give a client-centred driving lesson lasting about an hour to one of your pupils. The examiner will look for evidence that you meet the national standard for driver and rider training. Your pupil Your pupil can be a learner or a full licence holder. They can’t be an approved driving instructor (ADI) or someone else who is preparing to take the ADI part 3 test. You can take your trainer or mentor with you, but they can’t take part in the lesson. What you’ll be marked on You’ll be marked on 17 areas of competence that are grouped into 3 categories:

  • lesson planning

  • risk management

  • teaching and learning strategies

The 17 areas of competence are listed in the ADI part 3 test report form, which the examiner will fill in at the end of your test. You’ll get a score from 0 to 3 for each of the 17 competencies, which are added up to work out if you’ve passed the test, and what your grade will be. Want to know more?
