Details about the Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) qualification process are available in the ADI starter pack which is available to buy from the Driving Standards Agency (DSA). To order the ADI starter pack you should contact DSA’s ADI branch on 0870 121 4202 .

Multiple choice

The driving theory test has two parts, part one is a multiple choice test of 100 questions and part two is a hazard perception test of 14 video clips in which you will have to identify 15 developing hazards. To prepare for both parts of the theory test we recommend that all candidates, regardless of driving experience, use the resource material available.

To prepare for the multiple choice part of the theory test, there are books known as the source material. The book titles are set out in the ADI starter pack. The complete set of theory test questions and answers is also available in book format from ADI section.

Hazard perception

DSA has developed a modular, multi-media training resource for the hazard perception test. This resource adopts a structured approach to defining hazards, looking for clues, the ‘mirror-signal-manoeuvre’ routine, scanning and planning, prioritising, cutting down the risks and responding to hazards. The DVD also has a number of interactive example hazard perception video clips. This training resource is available in DVD and VHS video format and is called ‘The official guide to hazard perception’, this was formally known as ‘RoadSense’.

All of these products are available to buy from most high street book shops,
