About ADI Part 3

ADI Part 3 Test of Teaching Ability

After passing the ADI Part 2 test, candidates can move onto Part 3, and just like Part 2, they are only allowed 3 attempts to pass. Unsuccessful candidates must wait until 2 years after the date of passing ADI Part 1 before they can reapply and begin the whole process again.

Part 3 takes approximately one hour and will assess the potential driving instructor on 17 competencies, which are broken down into 3 core areas of instruction:

  • lesson planning
  • risk management
  • teaching and learning strategie

The test car is arranged by the candidate and must fit a list of requirements such as tax, insurance, MOT, L plates, rear seat belts etc. Failure to meet the criteria will result in the test being cancelled.

Updates to the ADI Part 3 Test now mean that the examiner will sit in the back of the car and assess, while the potential driving instructor gives a driving lesson to a pupil.

The pupil is arranged by the candidate and can be at any level of driving ability (although they are NOT allowed to be a qualified driving instructor or another candidate preparing for Part 3).

At the end of ADI Part 3, the examiner will go back into the test centre to work out the final marks, and fill out the paperwork. Candidates then wait until the examiner calls them to the office to hear the results and some feedback about the driving lesson that was given.

ADI Part 3 is the most difficult test in the process of becoming a qualified, approved driving instructor. Many trainees struggle and can be confused by what is expected of them in order to pass the test.

Because candidates are only allowed 3 attempts at this test, failure on the initial attempt can lead to added pressure on subsequent tests, which can have a negative effect during a test situation.

Not being adequately prepared for the ADI Part 3 is the main reason that potential driving instructors fail on their first attempt. In order to pass, trainees must be absolutely clear on on how to teach any type of lesson, and confident that they can carry it out.

Finding good quality ADI Part 3 training done by an experienced instructor trainer is essential, and it ensures the traineee has the confidence to pass ADI Part 3, and go on to be a successful driving instructor.
