Approved driving instructor (ADI) standards check

1. Overview

The ADI standards check assesses your ability to teach pupils.

You have to take at least one ADI standards check during each 4-year period that you’re registered as an ADI.

You have to take a standards check even if you don’t have a car or aren’t working as an ADI.

You can only take standards checks in English or Welsh.

When to take your standards check

You’ll get a letter from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency asking you to go for your standards check. It will say when and where to go.

There is no additional fee for a standards check.

You can be removed from the ADI register if you don’t go to your standards check.

There are different rules for taking a standards check in Northern Ireland.
