Bill Mossop ADI

"Trying to find the most suitable driving instructor training company quickly developed into a minefield of people asking me to sign contracts and sign cheques! I’m really happy that I chose GreenLight who offered me ‘one to one’ training on their ‘pay as you learn’ course. The exams were not easy but with my trainer’s encouragement I was successful. GreenLight are a very professional company who I found very genuine in their quest to help me qualify – couldn’t have done it without them."

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) state that if you want to become an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) you must .....

  • hold a full British or Northern Ireland unrestricted car driving licence;
  • have held it for a total of at least 4 out of the past 6 years prior to entering the Register after qualifying, but:
  • a foreign driving licence, an automatic car driving licence or a provisional licence held after passing the driving test, all count towards the 4 years;
  • not have been disqualified from driving at any time in the 4 years prior to being entered in the Register;
  • be a fit and proper person to have your name entered in the Register. All convictions, including motoring offences still in force (i.e. not ‘spent’ under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974) will be taken into account when we assess your suitability to be entered in the Register; and
  • pass the Register qualifying exam.

In addition you should be aware that you cannot accompany a person to drive unless you have held a full U.K. driving licence for three years and must be aged 21 or more. A foreign full licence will count towards this three year period but it must be a foreign licence that is accepted under the ‘exchange’ scheme. For more details of the exchange system you should read Section 4 of the D.V.L.A. pamphlet D100 “What you need to know about driving licences” available at most post offices.
