Re: guide me to become an instrutor

Quality time with the family, That is how I sold the idea to my wife. To make a reasonable income I work 8am - 8pm Monday to Friday + Sat am. And she asks who I am when I walk in the door. Because I still got calls to make, accounts to balance and cpd to worry about. But do I love the job, You bet I do  lol

Re: guide me to become an instrutor

Hi

The best thing you can do is order a copy of the ADI starter pack from the DSA.  This will answer all your questions regarding the qualification process. To order a copy (which costs £5) telephone the DSA on 0870 121 4202.

Good luck

Re: guide me to become an instrutor

Firstly I'd like to welcome you both to the site!

mr-bud

There are many ways to go about, training to become a driving instructor, it's just a case of finding the right one for you!

The way I think I'd do things if I had to do it again is; obtain a copy of the ADI14 or ADI starter pack, which is available via the DSA or from various on-line suppliers and costs around £5.

On top of this if you get yourself a software package for the theory test you should be able to cover everything and pas the exam without having to spend  a fortune on training, you will need other books as well.

These items are available through our own shop! use the link below to access it.

http://www.iseekhere.com/drivingshop/index.html

You can also purchase a part 1 study pack for around £60 which contains all of the books you're likely to need, a copy of the ADI14 is included in this pack. The link below will take you through to Desk top driving!

http://www.desktopdriving.com/index.php … l=main.php

In total there are 3 exams which you have to pass to become an ADI

Part 1 costs £50
Parts 2 & 3 cost £62

Part 1 is the theory and hazrd perception tests which you may have read about on here.

Basically the theory test consists of 100 multiple choice questions, which are split into 4 bands.
Band 1: Road proceedures
Band 2: Traffic signs and signals, car control,pedestrians, mechanicle knowledge
Band 3: Driving tests, disabilities and law
Band 4: Publications and instructional techniques

The pass mark for this part of the test is 85%, but you must attain a minimum of 20% in each band to pass.

During the hazard perception part of the test, you'll be shown 14 interactive video clips, within these 14 clips there are 15 developing hazards for you to identify. For each developing hazard you identify, you'll score upto 5 points depending on when you react to the situation (click the mouse).

The pass mark for this part of the test is 59 out of 75, and you have to pass both the theory and hazard perception at the same time.

Part 2 is a practicle driving test which lasts for 1 hour, and covers all types of roads including motorways. At the start of this test your eyesight will also be tested, in the same way as it was when you took your L-Test, but the distance at which you need to read a number plate is greater (27.5m on the old style number plates & 27m on the new style number plates)

During the test you'll be asked to perform a number of manouvers.

The manouvers are
Turn in the road
Left hand corner reverse
Right hand corner reverse
Reverse park (paralell/bay)
Emergency stop

You'll also be asked 5 questions in the show me tell me catergory of the driving test.

To pass the driving test you must have no more than 6 minor faults in total.

You are allowed 3 attempts at this test, if you don't pass within the 3 attempts, you'll then need to wait untill 2 years, from your part 1 pass date, to start the qualifying process again.

Part 3 is a test ofyour ability to instruct.

This test is split into 2 phases, each phase lasts 30 minutes total test time is about 1 hour.

During the test the supervising examiner will take on the role of 2 different pupils. Phase 1; they'll play a pupil at the begginer or part trained stage & in phase 2 they'll play a pupil who is around test standard.

You need to pass both parts of this exam on the same day, and again you have 3 attempts at it.

Part 1 can be prepared for by a self study pack
Part 2 most decent ADIs would be able to help you get through this exam
Part 3 you really need a specialist trainer for this part of the exam. Go on recommendation don't be fooled by all the glossy adds, when it comes to choosing a trainer!

The amount you earn will depend on the hours your prepared to put in, what some people consider to be a decent income others would disagree with. I personally work Tuesday to saturday, don't start before 9am and I'm usually finished by 6 pm at the latest. And I make what I call a comfortable living.

As far as job satisfactions concerned, I've never done anything that is so rewarding. wink
