Approved driving instructor (ADI) part 2 (driving ability) test
Understanding your approved driving instructor (ADI) part 2 test result, including what was assessed, what sorts of things counted as faults, and how to improve in each area.
About your driving test result
To pass your driving ability test, you needed to make:
- no more than 6 driving faults (sometimes called ‘minors’)
- no serious or dangerous faults (sometimes called ‘majors’)
If you passed
- get a registered trainer (if you do not already have one)
- get a trainee driving instructor licence to help you get experience teaching pupils
When your trainer says you’re ready, you can book your ADI part 3 test.
If you do not pass
The examiner will tell you what faults you made.
You can take the test again if you fail at either your first or second attempt.
You have to pay again to book another test. If you fail the ADI part 2 test 3 times, you will have to retake and pass the ADI part 1 test again. You will have to wait 2 years from the date you first passed the ADI part 1 test, to retake the ADI part 1 test.
Find a registered trainer (if you do not already have one) to help you prepare for your retest.
