Finding an instructor

Be confident about getting the best driving education you can by using an RSA approved driving instructor (ADI). There are more than 1,500 ADIs across the country – they are your passport to a long and safe driving career.

 

The Road Safety Authority and the ADI Stakeholders Forum have jointly developed the ADI Voluntary Code of Practice to help  Driving Instructors provide an excellent level of customer service to their clients. The document sets out standards within which learner drivers can reasonably expect their driving instructors to operate.

 

All ADIs who have signed up to the ADI Voluntary Code of Practice will have The Quality approved mark displayed on their address page.

  


 

Some RSA Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) provide driving tuition for students that are deaf or hard of hearing (DOHOH) and for students with restricted mobility who may require the use of vehicle adaptations as part of their driver training. Please find the list of ADIs who provide this here
