The object of this test is to assess the quality of your instruction and your ability to pass your knowledge on to pupils.

*From 2nd October 2017 the format of the test will change.

The DVSA will moving to a competence-based assessment.

You will be assessed over a single one-hour lesson on the 3 main competencies of:

You'll also be assessed on an additional 17 sub-competencies.

There'll be no more role play by a DVSA examiner - trainee instructors must provide a 'real' pupil. This could be a friend, family member or colleague if you're not teaching any learners.

The lesson will have to reflect the learning goals and needs of your pupil.

"Just like to say thanks alot for all your help, support and guidance...
I would never have done it without you.
I have passed your details on to a few people in my area who are interested in becoming an ADI.
I passed on my second attempt on the 19th February 2014 and that was all due to your excellent support and guidance.
I will definately be in touch for my Check test training."
