Understanding the Training Process for Driving Instructors at NxtGen

The training program at NxtGen ADI consists of three distinct stages:

  1. Theory Stage: Trainees are required to correctly answer 85 out of 100 driving theory questions to progress to the next stage. All necessary training materials and theory books are provided.
  2. Practical Stage: Trainees must retake and pass their driving test with no more than six minor faults. This practical test lasts for 60 minutes. A minimum of 20 hours of driving tuition is required before taking the test to ensure top-notch driving skills.
  3. Teaching Stage: To begin teaching driving lessons to learner drivers, trainees must complete at least 40 hours of Part 3 training to obtain their PDI Driver Training Licence, which is valid for 6 months. After obtaining the PDI, an additional 20 hours of driving tuition is required before taking the Part 3 exam. This method allows trainees to earn income while they learn. The Part 3 exam lasts for 60 minutes, and trainees must bring a student along so that the DVSA Examiner can assess their teaching skills.
