ADI Training

Gsm Driving Academy has a separate division specialising in Driving Instructor Training. Our Trainers are top grade instructors who have worked with some of the elite companies in the industry. They have spent substantial amount of time studying other companies training methods to find weaknesses and flaws and have now put together a robust training regime which is tailored to each individual.

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) is an executive agency of the Department of Transport. The agency is responsible for conducting all theory and practical driving tests in Great Britain.

To become an ADI you need to pass the DSA ADI qualifying examination and to register you need to meet certain minimum legal requirements. You must:

  • Hold a full UK or EEA unrestricted car driving licence; (if you have points please call for more information)
  • Have held it for at least 4 years prior to entering the Register after qualifying;
  • Not have been disqualified from driving at any time in the 4 years prior to being entered in the Register;
  • Be a ‘fit and proper’ person to have your name entered in the Register.

All convictions, motoring or non-motoring still in force will be taken into account by the DSA before allowing you on the Register. You must ensure you can read a number plate in good daylight at the distance of 27.5 metres or 26.5 metres depending on the width of the lettering (with glasses if normally worn for driving) as this will be checked on Part 2 of the qualifying examination.

On the normal driving test you need only read a number plate at 20.5 metres or 20 metres depending on the width of the lettering.

The ADI Qualifying Examination

Once you have passed Part 1 you are required to undertake and pass the two remaining parts within two years. You are permitted an unlimited number of attempts at Part 1. However, for Part 2 and Part 3 you are only allowed three attempts at each test.

Should you fail a third attempt at Part 2 or Part 3 you would have to restart qualification again after 2 years had elapsed from your Part 1 pass date.

Waiting time for Part 1 is minimal; however, you will need to wait 6 to 8 weeks for either a Part 2 or Part 3 test appointment. This is why intensive training for Part 2 and 3 is unsuitable and why it is better to spread out the training over several weeks on a part-time basis with lots of practice in between.

Complete Training Costs are £1999. (half price from BSM & Instructor College) Pay as you go available at £30 an hour. Call our trainer today on 07716 060 070 to book an interview and take your first step towards a rewarding career as a DSA certified Driving Instructor.
