Choosing a Driving Instructor
To learn to drive,
or to pass the Irish Driving Test.
Since the 1st May 2009 all Irish driving instructors must be registered and approved by the Road Safety Authority before they can give driving lessons for reward.
To be approved each candidate must :-
- Be tax compliant
- Show that he/she is a person of good repute
- Pass a test of knowledge of driving theory
- Pass an extended driving test, and
- Pass an instructional ability test
And once registered an ADI will be check-tested every two years to ensure that the prescribed standard is maintained.
