Become an Approved Driving Instructor

Being an approved driving instructor (ADI) can be a very rewarding career: you’ll help people to learn an important skill for life.

The job involves working with all sorts of people, so you’ll need good people skills as well as patience and understanding, a thorough understanding of the theory and practice of driving, an ability to teach, awareness of changes in the regulations for driving tests, as well as driving instruction and a sense in business. 

Learner drivers often want to fit in their lessons around school and work, so you may have to work unsociable hours to fit in with their needs.

Skills and Knowledge Needed

  • Knowledge of teaching and the ability to design courses
  • Customer service skills
  • The ability to come up with new ways of doing things
  • Leadership skills
  • Excellent verbal communication skills
  • The ability to work on your own
  • Patience and the ability to remain calm in stressful situations
  • To be thorough and pay attention to detail
  • Being able to use a computer terminal or hand-held device may be beneficial for this job

"Having completed my PDI training with Kylie, I can only express how brilliant at instructor training she is. Kylie genuinely cares, and her support throughout the whole process is fantastic. She explains every subject with great, easy to understand detail. There is never a silly question. She is always there when you need her. I completed my training and qualified as an ADI. I would recommend Kylie as a trainer to anyone wanting to train as an instructor."
