Re: Dumb question

ADI has sat and passed all 3 exams required

whereas a PDI has sat and passed parts 1 and 2, but is working towards the 3rd.

So basically ~ ADI, has all the qualification already.

Re: Dumb question

yes

they are both licenced to teach for money, both are legal to (PDI's once been signed off 40 hours is it). I am not funtain of knowledge, I only know what have picked up from others! Jut giving a quick answer. But in essense ~ both have a minimum of 3 and half years +    of driving experience, and have been taught, how to teach!

Re: Dumb question

Just to add to what others have said...you can tell the difference between a fully qualified driving instructor (ADI) and a licensed trainee instructor (PDI), as an ADI will display a green octagonal licence in the windscreen of their vehicle when giving paid tuition whereas a PDI has a pink triangular licence..

PDI (trainee) licences are only granted by the DSA for a period of 6 months except in exceptional circumtances, so if the PDI does not manage to pass the third and final part of their qualifying exams within that 6 month period, they are no longer allowed to give driving instruction in return for money or monies worth.

You can see the ADI and PDI licences and read a bit more on the subject at the following link; Will The Instructor Be Fully Qualified Or A Trainee? - ADI or PDI...what's the difference and what do you get for your money?
