Guide to the ADI register

Automatic car instructors can only teach people to drive in an automatic car.
If you want to teach in a manual car you must pass the car driving test in a manual car and then wait 3 years.

If you have an automatic licence because you have a disability you may need to take an extra assessment. This is to prove that you can keep control of your car in an emergency and The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) will tell you if you need to do this.

If you have any motoring offences and other convictions your application can be refused if you have:

  • Been banned from driving
  • Have 6 or more penalty points
  • Been convicted of any non-motoring offences

The ADI Registrar will consider whether or not you’re suitable to become a driving instructor.
Your application is unlikely to be accepted if you’ve been:

  • Convicted of a sexual, violent, financial or drug-related crime
  • Banned from working with children
