ADI Part 3 explained in simple terms

ADI Part 3 Instructional Ability Test – what is involved

The ADI Part 3 had been developed close to the following description. Therefore the style of training was changed, and now the test is going to be like this. Please Look at this link.

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

The test is in two parts, each of which lasts about half an hour. Consequently, you must pass both parts of the driving examination at the same time.

During your ADI Part 3 training, we will provide you with a study pack for you to learn at home, which includes a DVD and a workbook. We will also provide you with a minimum of 40 hours in-car tuition with an experienced ORDIT REGISTERED instructor trainer. He will ensure that you are ready to take your test and become an Approved Driving Instructor.
First of all, you will be asked to demonstrate your knowledge and ability by giving practical driving instruction to the examiner. He will first take on the role of a pupil who is a beginner, or a learner driver with limited driving knowledge. Finally as a student who is about test standard.

The examiner will explain everything to you at the time.

The exercises

For each of the two roles the examiner will choose one of the exercises given below as the basis of the instruction:

  • safety precautions on entering the car and explanation of the controls moving off and making routine stops
  • reversing and reversing into limited openings to the right or left
  • turning the vehicle in the road to face the opposite direction, using forward and reverse gears
  • parking close to the kerb, using forward and reverse gears
  • how to make an emergency stop and practical instruction in the use of mirrors
  • approaching and turning corners
  • the judgement of speed, making progress and general road positioning
  • dealing with road junctions
  •  being able to deal with Crossroads
  • dealing with pedestrian crossings and giving correct signals in a clear and unmistakable manner

ADI Part 3 marking sheetThe instruction you give should be relevant to the time available and the standard of the ‘pupil’ being role-played by the examiner.

You will probably find it helpful to establish the depth of the ‘pupil’s’ knowledge in each phase. By asking questions and observing the ‘pupil’s’ performance as you would with any pupil you had not taught before.

How will I be assessed on the test?

In evaluating your performance, the examiner will take into account:

  • the method, clarity, adequacy and correctness of instruction given
  • the observation, analysis and correction of faults committed by the pupil
  • your general manner

You will be expected to maintain control of the lesson while being patient, tactful and give encouragement to the ‘pupil’ at all times.
