    ADI Part 1 Training

    There are 4 sections on the first part of the theory test. Each  section has 25 questions so 100 questions in all. You will be able to  choose between 4 possible answers for each of the questions.  The test  will consist of hazard perception and multiple-choice questions and will  take about 1 hour and 45 minutes to complete. These will be based on:

    • All road procedure
    • Car control, pedestrians, signals and traffic signs and mechanical knowledge
    • The driving test, law and disabilities
    • Instructional techniques and publications

    You will then have to complete the second part of the test. This will  be the Hazard Perception. You will have to show that you can identify  what the hazards are that may arise when you are driving around. There will be 14 video clips that will be played to you on a  computer. They will all last for 1 minute. These will show a variety of  driving hazards, the kind of things that can happen every day on the  road. If you see a hazard on the test then you can click on the mouse to  indicate that you have seen it. The quicker you do this, the higher  your score will be. In 1 of the clips, you will see2 developing hazards. In the other 13, you will see 1 developing hazard.

     What is a developing hazard?  

    This is when something happens and you have to change your direction  or the speed you are driving at while you are driving on the roads. If you want to pass this test then you will have to score at least 57 out of 75. For each hazard you will get 5 points.

    What you will need 

    You will need to bring your driving licence with you on the day of  your training test.  If by any chance you still have a paper licence  then you must bring your passport too. If you bring any other type of  photo idea then this will not be accepted. The test will be cancelled  and you will have to pay for another test at a later date. It is a good  idea to look presentable and that your car does too. Adams Driver Trainer will do everything we can to see that you pass  these tests. We will give you the recommended material as well as over  the phone, email support and help from your personal trainer that has  been assigned to you. They will be up to date with all the latest  information you need for these exams supplying you with the necessary  videos on hazard awareness, CD’s and helpful books. You will have  one-to-one tuition with your instructor as well as any mock tests that  you need.

    ADI Part 2 Training

    Part 2: Driving Ability 

    On the day of the test you will have an eyesight test, you will be  asked questions about safety and you will have to show your driving  techniques. This will last for about an hour.

    The eyesight test:

    You will need to be able to read a number plate, with contact lenses or glasses. The distance will be: New number plates – 26.5 meters Old number plates – 27.5 meters You can attempt to pass the part 2 driving ability test up to 3  times. If you fail all 3 times then you cannot take this test again  until your theory test expires, this will be 2 years from the date you  passed. It is only then that you can start the whole process again if  you would still like to become a driving instructor. If you fail the  eyesight test, the exam will not continue and this will be counted into  the 3 attempts.

    Safety questions:

    On the test, there will be 5 safety questions. 3 of the questions  will be where you have to show them what you would do when you do a  safety check on the vehicle and the 2 other questions would be you  explaining how you would do these checks. So, you will be asked how you would carry out a check on both the  safety and the condition of 3 components of the car you are driving. You will then have to carry out a proper check on 2 more components from the list below:

    • Steering
    • Direction indicators
    • Brakes
    • Tyres
    • Reflectors
    • Audible warning device
    • Lights
    • The liquids used in the steering system, breaking system and the engine
    • The liquids that are used as a coolant, cleaner or a lubricant

    Driving Techniques

    After you have completed the safety questions you will then have to demonstrate:

    • How well you can handle the controls
    • The correct procedures for driving
    • That you are aware of the actions taken by other drivers
    • You must be able to judge distance, speed and timing
    • You must consider the safety of other road users
    • You must drive in an environmentally friendly manner

    You will drive on roads that will be busy and used by heavy vehicles.  There will be many different scenarios that you will encounter so you  must show that you are confident and understand exactly what is  happening around you. You must take control of situations and show you  have the ability to drive accordingly using the right driving  techniques. You will be asked to carry out different manoeuvres which will  include the 3 reversing manoeuvres that you learnt on your driving test. The car in which you use for the test must be provided by yourself.  It will need to be in a good condition and it will need to be:

    • Taxed and insured
    • A hatchback or salon car
    • All the seat belts must be in good working order
    • It will need to be a manual car
    • Right hand drive
    • The seat must be positioned correctly and must have a head restraint
    • It cannot have any L plates on the vehicle
    • It will need to have an adjustable rear view mirror for the examiner to use

    Adams Driver Trainer will only be too happy to supply you with a  dual controlled car while you are having your driving instructor  training and then for your ADI test.   .
