Responsibilities of an Approved Driving Instructor
An Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) has a very important role to fulfil. This goes beyond just teaching someone to drive a car in order to pass their driving test. I am responsible for teaching a life skill - instilling high standards of driving and behaviour into new drivers.
As an ADI, I will be expected to show:
- a high regard for all aspects of road safety
- a high standard of driving and instructional ability
- a professional approach to my customers
- a responsible attitude to my pupils and profession
- that I am a 'fit and proper' person
I provide one-to-one tuition and I do not normally allow passengers to sit in the back of the car during tuition, however if mum or dad or any driver that is going to supervise your private practice would like to sit in on a lesson they will be welcome by arrangement as it can benefit the pupil.
