If you are paying someone to teach you to drive, they must be registered with the Driver & Vehicle Agency (DVA). Only Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) can charge money for teaching you to drive.
How to confirm that an ADI is registered
Ask to see their licence which they should carry at all times. In the case of ADIs and Potential Driving Instructors (PDIs) (who will be issued with a trainee licence to instruct under the supervision of an ADI), their licence may be displayed on the windscreen of their car.
ADI qualifying process
DVA is responsible for maintaining and checking the standards of all ADIs . In order to qualify, ADIs must:
Have held a full driving licence for at least four years
Pass a much tougher theory test than the one learner drivers take
Pass a strict driving test
Pass a test of their teaching ability
Be of good character
Reach and keep up a high standard of instruction
The standard of tuition given by the ADI is regularly checked by a supervising examiner from the DVA.
