ADI area | Driving instructor theory test

 

ADI part One, the first training module to becoming a driving instructor

 

The part one is designed to give you the theory behind driving, and requires you to have a higher standard of knowledge than the learner's theory test. Preparing for your theory test will help you understand what your pupils will be going through as they prepare for their test.

Preparation for the Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) part 1 test can some times take the longest because much of the course is home study and it relies on you buckling down and reading. To help with your preparation there are 6 books which the DVSA recommend you read, and there's also lots of internet sites and mobile apps to help with study and practice. 

Here's an overview of the Part 1 training

 

Part 1:

The approved driving instructor (ADI) part 1 test 

Multiple-choice questions: You have 1 hour and 30 minutes to answer 100 multiple-choice questions.

Before the test starts you’ll get:

  • instructions on how the test works
  • the chance to do some practice questions to get used to the screens

 

How the test works

There are 25 questions in each of these 4 categories:

  • road procedure
  • traffic signs and signals, car control, pedestrians and mechanical knowledge
  • driving test, disabilities, and the law
  • publications and instructional techniques

A question and several possible answers appear on a screen. You have to select the right answer.

Leaving a question

You can ‘flag’ questions that you want to come back to later.

Changing your answers

You can go back to any question to review and change your answer at any point.

 

When you’ve finished

You can finish the multiple-choice questions part when you’ve answered all of the questions. You don’t have to use the full 1 hour and 30 minutes.

You can have a break of up to 3 minutes before the hazard perception test starts.

Before you start the hazard perception test, you’ll be shown a video about how it works.

You’ll then watch 14 video clips. The clips:

  • feature everyday road scenes
  • contain at least one ‘developing hazard’ - but one of the clips features 2 developing hazards

You get points for spotting the developing hazards as soon as they start to happen.

What a ‘developing hazard’ is

A developing hazard is something that would cause you to take action, like changing speed or direction.

 

Example: A car is parked at the side of the road and isn’t doing anything. It wouldn’t cause you to take action, so it’s not a developing hazard.

When you get closer, the car’s right-hand indicator starts to flash and it starts to move away. You’d need to slow down, so it’s now a developing hazard.

 

How the scoring works

You can score up to 5 points for each developing hazard.

To get a high score, click the mouse as soon as you see the hazard starting to develop.

You don’t lose points if you click and get it wrong. However, you won’t score anything if you click continuously or in a pattern.

You only get one attempt at each clip. You can’t review or change your responses.

 

Pass mark and test result

You’ll get the result at the test centre after taking the test. You must pass both parts to pass the test.

To pass the multiple-choice part, you must get both:

You’ll fail if you get an overall score of 85 or higher, but don’t score high enough in each of the 4 categories.

To pass the hazard perception part, you need to score at least 57 points out of 75.

 

If you pass

You’ll get a pass certificate letter if you pass the test. You’ll need this when you book and take your approved driving instructor (ADI) part 2 test.

Your pass certificate number lasts for 2 years. You must qualify as an ADIin that time, otherwise you’ll have to start the application process again.

 

If you fail

You’ll get a letter at the test centre. It’ll tell you which parts you didn’t score enough points on so you know what to practise.

You must book and take the full test again.

You have to wait at least 3 working days before taking your test again.

This is how we help you with our part one training course

We supply you with our own unique part one study pack, plus give you a three hour introduction to the course with an Elite trainer who will help you develop a training plan to build your knowledge, and time frame TO prepare for the Theory test.

 

We will also supply you with books, hazard perception DVDs, and online theory that will accompany our online training system.

Because we plan ahead, while you're studying for the part one DVSA test we will take you out for a driving assessment and give you a complete detailed report with an explanation of where you can immediately start making progress. This will help bring the part one to life, and give you plenty of time to start practicing your driving techniques while you’re out in your own vehicle before you move on to part 2.
