THE ADI THEORY TEST (PART 1)
This is a multiple-choice test using a touch-screen computer. There are 100 questions on all aspects of driving which are divided into four categories and you must attain a minimum mark in each category.
The exam also includes a Hazard Perception test. The Hazard Perception test is the same as that taken by learner drivers, though does require a higher level of aptitude.
The test may be taken at any of the DSA´s 158 theory test centres, so there is one in every major town or city in the country.
This part of the course takes the form of distance learning training where we will concentrate fully on both elements of the test. All materials used are official DSA publications and their recommendations, including the complete DSA question bank, books, DVD and computer software.
You will be personally and professionally guided throughout, to ensure that you get off to the best possible start.
All materials provided are yours to keep. Further support, should you need it, is only a phone call away.
THE TEST OF DRIVING ABILITY (PART 2)
This is a practical one-hour test of your driving ability that covers all types of road and traffic conditions.
You must be able to demonstrate a high degree of technical skill, anticipation and awareness, as well as undertaking a number of manoeuvres, and completing an eyesight test. The test may be taken at a DSA regional driving test centre.
All training will be carried out in one of our training vehicles. The amount of training required varies from person to person, and this is tailored to suit each individual. These training sessions are designed to develop your existing experience and will help to make you a safe driver for life, not simply to pass the test.
THE TEST OF INSTRUCTIONAL ABILITY (PART 3)
Once again this is a practical test which lasts for one hour. The examiner, using role-play and acting the part of a pupil, will ask you to teach him/her at a particular standard.
There are 10 pre-set tests that the examiner can choose from. You will be expected to spot any mistakes, explain the reasons behind them, and suggest remedial action in order to prevent recurrence. The examiner will be looking for you to be friendly, patient, knowledgeable and understanding.
As with the Part 2 test, this one is also conducted at a DSA regional driving test centre. This test is by far the most involved of the three tests. You will be introduced to lesson plans, instructional techniques and DSA recommended material that will prove invaluable throughout your training with us.
Again this training will be carried out in one of our training vehicles, accurately recreating the test itself, so there will be no hidden surprises.
Part 3 training in particular is a very specialist skill. Rest assured that when you train with Adams Driver Training, your trainer will be among the best in the country and the training itself will be tailored to your individual needs.
