Manage your approved driving instructor (ADI) registration
Renew or update your registration
You’re responsible for keeping your approved driving instructor (ADI) registration up to date.
You must renew your registration every 4 years.
You can renew your registration in the month it expires. If your registration has already run out, you can re-register within 12 months of the expiry date.
If your ADI registration ran out more than 12 months ago, you need to reapply to become a driving instructor.
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
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.
Change of name or contact details
You must update your ADI registration within 7 days if you change your name or address.
