• The object of the ADI part 3 test is to assess the quality of your driving instruction and your ability to pass your knowledge on to pupils. The ADI part 3 test is in two parts, each of which lasts about half an hour. You must pass both parts of the ADI part 3 on the same test

    You will be asked to demonstrate your knowledge and ability by giving practical driving instruction to the examiner who will first take on the role of a pupil who is a beginner, or a learner driver with limited driving knowledge, and then a pupil who is about test standard. The ADI part 3 examiner will explain everything to you at the time

    ADI part 3 Insurance

    Your insurance must cover, for the time during which the examiner is driving, any liability that the examiner may have for all third party and damage risks and for liability to any passenger, including any official passenger. Your ADI part 3 insurance should cover any Driving Standards Agency (DSA) examiner. The insurance cover should not name a specific examiner as the driver because we cannot guarantee that a particular examiner will conduct the ADI part 3 test

    The DSA cannot accept responsibility for risks on your ADI part 3 not covered by insurance, including the loss of any no-claims bonus or the cost of repairing any minor damage. If either the car itself or the insurance does not meet with these requirements, the test will not be conducted and the fee will be forfeited.

    The DSA is aware that insurance companies sometimes ask for information about examiners. It is the Agency’s policy for data protection and security reasons not to disclose personal information about examiners. However, in exceptional circumstances, the ADI part 3 examiner will provide you with their name and confirm that they are over 25 years old on the morning of the test, but no further personal details will be made available

    The exercises on the ADI part 3

    For each of the two roles on your ADI part 3 the examiner will choose one of the exercises given below as the basis of the instruction:

    • safety precautions on entering the car and explanation of the controls

    • moving off and making normal stops

    • reversing and reversing into limited openings to the right or left

    • turning the vehicle round in the road to face the opposite direction, using forward and reverse gears

    • parking close to the kerb, using forward and reverse gears

    • how to make an emergency stop and practical instruction in the use of mirrors

    • approaching and turning corners

    • judgement of speed, making progress and general road positioning

    • dealing with road junctions

    • dealing with crossroads

    • dealing with pedestrian crossings and giving correct signals in a clear and unmistakable manner

    • overtaking, meeting and crossing the path of other road users, allowing adequate clearance

    The instruction you give should be tailored to the time available and to the standard of the ‘pupil’ being role-played by the examiner. You will probably find it helpful to establish the depth of the ‘pupil’s’ knowledge in each ADI part 3 phase, by asking questions and observing the ‘pupil’s’ performance as you would with a real pupil you had not taught before

    How will I be assessed on my ADI part 3?

    In assessing your performance on the ADI part 3, the examiner will take into account:

    • the method, clarity, adequacy and correctness of instruction given

    • the observation, analysis and correction of faults committed by the pupil

    • your general manner

    You will be expected to maintain control of the driving lesson, be patient and tactful and give encouragement to the ‘pupil’ at all times. What is assessed is the relevance of the instruction for the ability of the pupil and to the particular conditions on the road on the day of the ADI part 3 test. Don't get too bogged down trying to fix faults "the correct technichal way" as long as you get the point across and the SE understands what you mean you are doing your job as a driving instructor (at least in getting your point across)

    Registering as an Approved Driving Instructor

    After you pass the ADI Part 3 test you can apply to join the Register. You cannot give paid instruction unless you are registered, unless you still have a valid trainee licence.

    You must apply within your one year of passing your ADI Part 3 test or your qualification will become invalid and you would have to apply to start the qualifying process again.

    The way to understanding the ADI Part 3

    Let me show you how to clear away the clutter and confusion so you can go into your
    ADI part 3 with confidence

    It's not simply the technical stuff that a driving instructor should 'get your head around', in fact I believe that 'getting your head' around how you should think and approach the ADI part 3 is actually far more important

    Far too many driving instructors are led to believe that the ADI part 3 is extremely difficult, I suggest to you that if you are given the correct technical information and shown how to prepare your mind as to how NOT difficult the ADI part 3 test is by good driving instruction and positive methods right from the start, you would go into the ADI part 3 with a 'normal and healthy' level of anxiety instead of a blow your mind stressfull and miserable time on the run up to the ADI part 3 test

    I often hear from P.D.I's that the briefing MUST be VERY important on the ADI part 3 test.

    I say this, the briefing has a place in driving instruction but do you actually believe that the S.E. is more concerned about your briefing than your control and driving instruction/guidance of the driving lesson while the vehicle is on the move?

    Think about it, the S.E. and any sensible parent for example would be far more concerned that you get thier young son or daughter back home safely and happy after a driving lesson during which they learned good and safe driving practices

    Chill out a little as far as the ADI part 3 briefings go, be yourself and explain to the pupil/S.E. what the driving lesson objectives are and try to get the main points of the subject across

    A good way to think about a ADI part 3 briefing is 'how would i do this?' then simply pass on that knowledge to them, forget the word for word acting classes, remember you're a trainee driving instructor not an actor :)
