1. Overview

Your approved driving instructor (ADI) registration can be suspended if the ADI registrar thinks you pose a significant threat to public safety.

The ADI registrar can suspend you if they’re considering:

  • taking you off the ADI register
  • removing your trainee driving instructor licence
  • refusing to extend your registration or trainee licence

You can’t get paid for giving driving lessons if you’re suspended.

Claiming compensation

You can claim compensation if you’ve been suspended but are not then taken off the register.

There are different rules for your ADI registration in Northern Ireland.
