Approved driving instructor (ADI) part 2 test

1. Booking your test

You can book your approved driving instructor (ADI) part 2 test when you’ve passed your ADI part 1 test.

It’s the second of 3 tests you have to pass to qualify as an ADI. It’s a test of your driving ability.

The ADI part 2 test works differently in Northern Ireland.

To pass the test you must be able to:

  • drive safely in different road and traffic conditions
  • show that you know The Highway Code by the way you drive

The national standard for driving cars tells you everything you must be able to do to pass the test.

You can find driving instructor training if you need help to prepare for the test.

Only take your test when you can do everything without instruction.

Change or check your test details

You can change the date of your test after you’ve booked.

You can check the details if you’ve lost the email confirmation you were sent when you booked your test.

Rebook your test

Rebook your ADI part 2 test if you failed your first or second attempt at the test and want to resit it. You have to choose a date at least 10 working days away.

You can’t rebook the test if you fail it a third time.
