Tools for ADIs

The RSA provides a range of useful tools and the ADI Information Pack  for approved driving instructors (ADIs).

ADI resources

Taking a learner driver and bringing them up to test standard requires patience, skill and expert knowledge of the Rules of the Road. But it’s all worth it when your former student tells you that they’ve got their test!

Being able to assess a student’s progress during a lesson, and from one lesson to the next, is essential if they are to make rapid and sustained progress towards becoming a proficient driver.

It is also important that the learner driver is thoroughly prepared for the test. Download the RSA Guidelines to Driving Test Procedures (PDF) to give to your students. They must also be familiar with the rules regarding Driving Test Vehicle Standards(PDF).

Voluntary Code of Practice

The Road Safety Authority and the ADI Stakeholders Forum have jointly developed this Voluntary Code of Practice to help Instructors provide an excellent level of customer service to their clients.  The Voluntary Code of Practice(PDF) is not intended to be exhaustive, or prescriptive, but merely attempts to raise awareness of the expectations that the RSA, your colleague ADI’s and your customers may have of you.  The code may be up-dated from time to time and the very latest version will always be available from t his page.

ADI’s are invited to sign up to the ADI Voluntary Code of Practice. All ADI’s who sign up to the Voluntary Code of Practice will have the quality approved Q-Mark added to their ADI web address on the RSA website.

If you wish to sign up please fill in the ADI Voluntary Code of Practice form and sign it and return to the Driver Education section at:
