About the book

Now in its 19th edition, The Driving Instructor's Handbook is widely recognized in the UK driver training industry as the authoritative reference guide for both trainee and qualified instructors and is listed by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) as recommend reading for the Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) exams. This best-selling text covers every aspect of the profession, from the role itself, to the characteristics needed to do the job effectively through the preparation for the three ADI exams (theory and hazard perception, driving ability and instructional ability). It also includes detailed guidance on issues such as licences, training, teaching and coaching skills and road traffic law.

This latest edition now also covers practice questions for the ADI part 1 exam, detailed information on driver training, structuring the lesson, dealing with disabilities and impairments and continuing professional development (CPD). The Handbook is essential reading for anyone involved in the training of drivers and instructors at all levels, and will ensure that new drivers are better able to cope with the increasing demands made on them.
