Test of Ability to Instruct DVSA ADI Part 3

The Test of Ability to Instruct, DVSA ADI Part 3, is a practical test of your ability to teach.

The test last for approximately 1 hour, during which time you are conducting a driving lesson, with a real client, whilst the examiner sits in the back of the car, observing and assessing the lesson that you deliver.

The client is selected by you in advance of the test, and for the best preparation you will have delivered lessons to this client previously, that way you will have continuity with the lesson being delivered, you will already know the client’s ability, and what topics they have already learnt, you will also know how they respond in different circumstances, and how they learn best.

The client that you are teaching can be anyone apart from an ADI, or someone training to be an ADI that has already passed DVSA ADI Part 2.

In the majority of cases your client will probably be a provisional driving licence holder, preparing for a L driving test; but it could also be a full licence holder undergoing some form of refresher driver training or driver development.

The examiner will be assessing your teaching ability, not just that any information that you give is factually correct.

The examiner will be considering questions relating to 17 different competencies and giving a mark from zero to three in relation to each question.

0 - no evidence of competence

1 - a few elements of competence demonstrated

2 - competence demonstrated in most elements

3 - competence demonstrated in all elements

The questions that the examiner is considering are:

Lesson Planning

Did the trainer identify the pupil's learning goals and needs?

Was the agreed lesson structure appropriate for the pupil's experience and ability?

Were the practice areas suitable?

Was the lesson plan adapted, when appropriate, to help the pupil work towards their learning goals?

Risk Management

Did the trainer ensure that the pupil fully understood how the responsibility for risk would be shared?

Were directions and instructions given to the pupil clear and given in good time?

Was the trainer aware of the surroundings and the pupil's actions?

Was any verbal or physical intervention by the trainer timely and appropriate?

Was sufficient feedback given to help the pupil understand any potentially safety critical incidents?

Teaching and learning strategies

Was the teaching style suited to the pupil’s learning style and current ability?

Was the pupil encouraged to analyse problems and take responsibility for their learning?

Were opportunities and examples used to clarify learning outcomes?

Was the technical information given comprehensive, appropriate and accurate?

Was the pupil given appropriate and timely feedback during the session?

Were the pupil’s queries followed up and answered?

Did the trainer maintain an appropriate, non-discriminatory manner throughout the session?

At the end of the session - was the pupil encouraged to reflect on their own performance

By marking these 17 competencies from 0 to 3 at the end of the lesson the examiner will have a mark out of 51

A score of 0 to 30 is a Fail

Described as:

Unsatisfactory Performance

A score of 31 to 42 is a Grade B

Described as:

Sufficient competence demonstrated to permit entry to the  Register of Approved Driving Instructors

A score of 43 to 51 is a Grade A

Described as:

A high overall standard of instruction demonstrated
