A driving school will be needed in order to sponsor you plus a minimum of 40 hours of ADI Part 3 training will need to have been completed of which at least 10 hours must be in-car training. A trainee driving instructor licence can then be applied for. If your application is successful, your licence should arrive within 2 to 3 weeks.
This licence will enable you to become a Potential Driving Instructor (PDI) and you are entitled to legally be paid for driving instruction. The trainee licence is valid for a maximum of 6 months and currently costs £140.00.
Generally only one trainee licence is permitted per individual although in certain circumstances a second can be granted. For an example, if your Part 3 test has been cancelled by the DVSA and your trainee licence expires before the date the DVSA has arranged your new Part 3 test, then a second trainee licence would likely be granted if applied for.
To obtain your trainee licence, you must be sponsored and work with an established driving school such as Cambridge Driving School. The school must have a fully qualified driving instructor (ADI) for each trainee sponsored. As a trainee licence holder, it is required that you receive an additional 20 hours of Part 3 training. 5 of these hours must be practical in-car training. This additional training must be conducted within the first 3 months of the trainee licence or if sooner, prior to taking the Part 3 test.
It is not essential to have a trainee licence for Part 3 preparation. The experience and skills gained whilst on a trainee licence however can be for some a significant advantage. Your trainer will discuss with you the benefits that you as an individual may gain from a trainee licence and if it is deemed appropriate in your particular case.
Condition that a trainee licence is granted by the DVSA are:
Once you have met these conditions and apply for your trainee licence, you will be presented with 2 options. These options need to be considered carefully as the chosen option cannot be changed once your application has been received.

Along with your trainee driving instructor licence application, form ADI 3L (MD) must be submitted. Form: Application for trainee licence: Declaration of Manager / Owner, this must be signed by the manager or owner of the driving school.
A minimum of 40 hours of Part 3 training must have been completed (with at least 10 hours practical in-car training) within 6 months of the trainee driving instructor licence application. To certify you have received this training, DVSA form ADI 21T must be submitted. Form: Instructor Training Declaration ADI 21T is for your ADI trainer to sign.
