Driving Instructor Training Kit: Part 2

Course aim

  • Prepare you to take the ADI Part 2 Driving Ability Test.
  • Give you the skills, knowledge and understanding to become an Advanced Driver on our busy roads.

By completing this online course you’ll be ready to get in-car with your trainer to hone your practical driving skills.

Your roadmap to passing the Part 2 test

  1. Complete this Part 2 online training course and get out in your own car to practice your new skills
  2. Find a local trainer for expert guidance and support
  3. Pass a mock test with your trainer (use your car)
  4. Take the exam in your car.

How long will it take?

  • This online Part 2 course will take you around 10 hours to complete.
  • We recommend you take at least 10 hours of practical in-car training with either an ORDIT trainer or a Grade A ADI
  • Only take the Part 2 test when both you and your trainer feel confident you can pass. (you only have 3 attempts at Part 2)

You only have 3 attempts to pass the Part 2 exam otherwise you’ll have to wait 2 years* before you are allowed to start the process all over again.

* 2 years from the date you passed the Part 1 exam

How can I find a trainer?

Which car should I use for my Part 2 test?

We strongly recommend you use your own vehicle for the Part 2 test. You will be familiar with this vehicle and will be spending many hours practicing your driving skills in it, so it makes perfect sense to use this vehicle on the big day.

  • Make sure the vehicle you intend to use on the test meets the DVSA’s rules.
  • You’ll just need to provide an interior mirror for the examiner to use. Remember, no L plates!

Essential reading for Part 2:

  • Driving the Essential Skills - DVSA
  • The Highway Code - DVSA
  • Know Your Traffic Signs - DVSA
  • Roadcraft: The Police Drivers Handbook.
