To pass you must get at least 57 from an available 75.

Part 3 – Instructional Ability – the hard bit!
This is a hard test to pass, but with the correct training it is straightforward.
This has recently changed (12/17) to a Standards Check similar to that which qualified ADI’s currently and routinely have to do. The examiner simply sits in the back and watches you take a lesson. Its 1 hour long, this is with a real pupil, there is no role play. You will be graded at the end of the test in the same way the Standards check is usually graded.
Typically it takes between 35 and 45 hours of training with lots of private practice to achieve a 1st time pass.
Unless otherwise agreed, the 1 to 1 training is based mainly in Northampton, although the test can be taken in Luton, Bletchly, Kettering or Northampton. You would normally use our training vehicle for the training and Test.
