To become an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) you will need to pass three tests. Surepass guides and supports you through each of these tests, ensuring that you go into each test feeling confident and able to pass.

We will cover the entire syllabus and provide you with a written assessment each day. With continued practice in your own car and our expert guidance, you will be amazed at just how quickly your driving skills will improve.
