What does GoRoadie consider Approved Driving Instructors?

Within the UK, Approved Driving Instructor (or ADI) is term for a trainer who is teaching car driving. The trainer (the ADI) has been tested and registered by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). UK law requires driving instructors be thus qualified before they can charge for their services. On GoRoadie we consider that someone with a Green Badge.

As with UK Law for driving instructors to be placed on the Register of Approved Driving Instructors, the instructor also has to fulfil the following criteria:

Approved Driving Instructor Green Badge Logo

  • Have held it for a total of at least four out of the past six years prior to entering the Register after qualifying
  • Not have been disqualified from driving at any time in the four years prior to being entered in the Register
  • Be a “fit and proper” person; all convictions are taken into account when entering your name on the register, and enhanced level criminal record check is required
  • Pass two qualifying practical examinations within two years of passing the theory examination
