Approved driving instructor (ADI) part 1 test

6. If you have reading difficulties

You should tell the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) if you have dyslexia or other reading difficulties when you book your test. You can then ask for:

  • an English voiceover
  • extra time to take the multiple-choice part of the test

Proof of your reading difficulty

You must send proof of your reading difficulty to the DVSA if you need more than the normal time. The proof could be a letter from:

  • a teacher or other education professional
  • a doctor or other medical professional

The DVSA will consider proof from someone independent who knows about your reading ability if you can’t get proof from one of these people, eg an employer.
