The benefits of taking driving lessons with an approved driving instructor (ADI)

what is an approved driving instructor and why should I get a driving instructor who is approved by the DVSA?

Here is a comprehensive guide to the benefits of taking driving lessons with a driving instructor who has been approved by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA):

  1. Qualification and experience: Approved driving instructors (ADIs) have passed a series of tests to demonstrate their knowledge and skills as driving instructors. This means they are qualified and experienced in teaching people to drive.

  2. Professionalism: ADIs are required to follow a code of conduct set by the DVSA, which includes behaving professionally, treating students with respect, and not accepting any form of payment or reward for referring students to other ADIs.

  3. Regulation: The DVSA regularly checks that ADIs are meeting the required standards and can take action if they are not. This means that you can have confidence that you are receiving high-quality driving lessons from a reputable instructor.

  4. Safety: ADIs are trained to teach safe driving habits and to identify and address any issues that may affect a student’s ability to drive safely. Taking lessons with an ADI can help ensure that you are learning to drive safely and responsibly.

  5. Pass rate: ADIs have a higher pass rate for their students than non-ADI instructors. This means that by choosing an ADI, you may have a better chance of passing your driving test on your first try.

  6. Continued support: Many ADIs offer ongoing support and guidance to their students, even after the driving test has been passed. This can be particularly helpful for new drivers who may have questions or need additional support as they continue to develop their driving skills.
