Manage your approved driving instructor (ADI) registration

1. Renew or update your registration

You’re responsible for keeping your approved driving instructor (ADI) registration up to date.

You must display your registration in the passenger-side edge of the front windscreen of your car when you give driving lessons.

You can be prosecuted for using an invalid ADI badge or one that’s not yours.

Renew your registration

  1. Get a criminal records check. You must do this before you renew your registration - it normally takes around 3 months but can sometimes take longer.

  2. Renew your ADI registration. You must do this every 4 years.

Change of name or contact details

You must update your ADI registration within 7 days if you change your name or address.
