Get a criminal record check if you’re applying to become an approved driving instructor (ADI) for the first time.

You can’t use one you have already - you must get a new one.

Start now on the Online Disclosures service

Before you start

You’ll need to use the:

  • organisation PIN 105205
  • secret word axis
  • organisation name DVSA - PDI (PO)

Check if you can become a driving instructor before you apply.

Proving your identity

When you’ve finished the online application, you must give proof of your identity.

You can do this at a Post Office offering the ‘CRB and ID verification service’.

You’ll need to take a printed page from your online application with barcodes on it and 3 original forms of ID (not copies). These can be:

  • your passport
  • your driving licence
  • a utility bill that’s less than 3 months old
  • a bank statement that’s less than 3 months old

The service costs £6.

There’s a different process to get your criminal record check if you’re applying to become an ADI in Northern Ireland.
