Preparing for and booking your ADI practical test

Preparing for and booking your ADI practical test

Part 2 of the test to qualify as an approved driving instructor (ADI) is a practical test to show that your own driving is of a suitable standard.

You must pass ADI part 1 before you can book the Part 2 test, and you shouldn’t book it until your instructor says you’re ready.

You’ll need to take your practical test within two years of passing your theory test – otherwise your theory test pass certificate will expire.

The practical driving test costs £111: for full details of the ADI test costs, visit GOV.UK.

Taking lessons with a driving instructor trainer should prepare you for your practical test. There is also a list of recommended resources on our Becoming an approved driving instructor page.

For more information and help with practical skills, and a checklist of what you should know and be able to do, visit the ADI Knowledge Centre.

It’s best to book your test using the official site, GOV.UK. If you use an unofficial site, you might pay more than you need to or you may not get a booking at all.

You can find your nearest test centre at GOV.UK.

You can also use GOV.UK if you need to change the test date or centre or cancel your test.
