Instructor Training Part 3

Ultimate Guide to Excelling in the ADI Part 3 Test with GP Instructor Training

Mastering the ADI Part 3 Test: A Key Step in Your Driving Instructor Journey

The ADI Part 3 Test, overseen by a DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) examiner, is a pivotal assessment in your career as a driving instructor. This test, focusing on a client-centered driving lesson lasting about an hour, is crucial for evaluating your adherence to the national standards for driver and rider training.

Choosing the Ideal Pupil for Your ADI Part 3 Test

For the ADI Part 3 Test, eligible pupils range from beginners to full license holders. However, currently approved driving instructors (ADIs) or those preparing for the ADI Part 3 test themselves are not eligible to participate. While trainers or mentors can accompany you, their direct involvement in the lesson is not permitted.

Essential Evaluation Criteria in the ADI Part 3 Test

Your performance in the ADI Part 3 test will be assessed across 17 vital competencies, categorized into three main areas:

  1. Lesson Planning
  2. Risk Management
  3. Teaching and Learning Strategies

These competencies are graded on a scale from 0 to 3, with your cumulative score determining your overall qualification and grade, as outlined in the ADI Part 3 test report form.

Interpreting Your ADI Part 3 Test Outcomes

After your lesson, the DVSA examiner will analyze your performance and provide you with your test results:

  • 0-30: Fail – Reflects inadequate performance for ADI registration.
  • 31-42: Grade B – Indicates satisfactory performance, making you eligible for ADI registration.
  • 43-51: Grade A – Denotes a high level of instruction, qualifying for ADI registration.

Scenarios for automatic failure include scoring below 8 in ‘risk management’ or having the lesson terminated by the examiner due to safety risks.
