Managing your EDT students

Your ADI role in EDT

Your role as an ADI is to provide timely advice and guidance to the learner to ensure positive outcomes. The EDT programme does not cover the full set of skills needed by a competent driver. To become a competent driver, you should advise a learner to:

  • prepare for each EDT session
  • undertake supervised practice between sessions
  • take extra driving instruction if they need it

Further guidance is available to you through your local ADI Examiner.


Managing EDT in the EDT Portal

You must upload completed EDT sessions to the EDT portal.

In the EDT portal you will be able to:

  • upload session records
  • view completed sessions
  • manage logbooks
  • order logbooks

Using the MyEDT portal, your learners will be able to login and view their own EDT records.

Staying Qualified

Every 2 years you must:

  • renew your registration with the RSA
  • pass a check test

You must complete both as soon as possible after you are notified by the RSA. You risk being removed from the ADI Register if your re-registration is late.
