These practice quizzes help you to prepare for the Theory Part 1 section of your Approved Driving Instructor qualification. There are three parts in total.

Part 1: Theory

The first part consists of multiple choice questions which you can practice above, and a hazard perception test. The overall pass mark is 85% (i.e. you will be asked 100 questions and you need to get at least 85 correct), but you must achieve a minimum mark of 80% in each of the four sections. We suggest you work your way through the sections individually so that you know you can answer all the questions correctly.

The hazard perception test has a minimum pass mark of 57 out of 75. You must pass both parts to qualify.

Part 2: Driving ability

You will be assessed on your driving ability including separate assessments of your eyesight and your driving technique. You must pass both parts of the test in the same attempt. We suggest you train with the Institute of Advanced Motorists or a similar organisation to improve your driving technique on the roads. You are only allowed to make a maximum of six minor driving faults during the test.

Parts 3: Instructional ability

Part 3 assesses your ability to pass on your knowledge to your pupils. The examiner will play the role of a pupil and you will be asked to give practical instruction. The examiner will play the part of a fairly new driver, then a pupil who is about ready to take a test, and finally a pupil who is a qualified driver that wants further training.
