ADI - Approved Driving Instructor

New laws have been drawn up under the Road Traffic Act 1968 which, for the first time, regulate driving instructors in Ireland.

On 1 May 2009, it became an offence for a professional instructor to teach someone to drive unless the instructor is on the RSA’s Register of Approved Driving Instructors.

These regulations guarantee and standardise the quality and skills of instructors across the country. It is a crucial part of our efforts to make the roads safer. The quality of driving instruction in Ireland directly affects road safety so it’s vital that every instructor meets a minimum standard.

The regulatory system has three elements:

A three-part ADI exam consisting of driver theory, driving practice and an ‘ability-to-instruct’ test.
Tax clearance (tax clearance certificate must be produced as proof of tax compliance).
Garda vetting (to safeguard younger learner-drivers).
