Choosing your driving instructor

At 2nd2None driving school we also train driving instructors known as PDIs, these trainee driving instructors as part of their training are allowed to teach real pupils for reward while they prepare for their final exam.

Please be assured these trainee driving instructors have received more than 50 hours of training from our team of qualified driving instructors ADIs before being allowed to teach real pupils for reward. Please do speak to our team if you have any concerns. 


What is a Trainee Driving Instructor?

Partially trained driving instructors are refered to as Potential Driving Instructors or PDIs for short.

PDIs have to pass the ADI theory and ADI driving ability test and complete no less than 40 hours of training before being allowed to teach real pupils for reward and in preparation for them to take their final Part 3 exam, the instructional ability test.

PDIs will display a Pink triangle Trainee Badge in their car


What is an ADI Driving Instructor?

Qualified driving instructors are referred to as Approved Driving Instructors or ADIs for short.

ADIs will have passed the Part 3 exam the instructional ability test and are therfore more likely to have more teaching experience and have been doing the job longer than a PDI. Many of our ADIs will also hold further qualifications in driving instruction.

ADIs will display a Green ADI Badge in their car.

We have both ADIs and PDIs here at 2nd2None Driving School. We train many of our own PDIs and therfore we charge the same price for both ADIs & PDIs. If you do not want a PDI for your driving lessons, please make our staff aware when you book your lessons.
