About the book

Now in its 20th edition, The Driving Instructor's Handbook is widely recognized in the 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 and covers all 2016/17 changes to the ADI examinations and standards checks.
