The Driving Instructors Handbook – This book covers everything you need to know when it comes to being an ADI. ‘An up-to-date copy of The Driving Instructor’s Handbook is as essential for a fully qualified instructor as it is for those seeking to pass the ADI qualifying Examinations.’  – John Lepine, MBE, General Manager, The Motor Schools Association. RRP £19.99

Free ADI Theory App

As well as providing all of the free ADI training aids above we have also designed an app especially for our driving instructor trainees. Use this 4 Wheelz app to test your knowledge of the Highway Code whilst you’re on the go or have a spare few minutes in your day. Through the app you can also test your instructional techniques to ensure you are as prepared as you can be for those all-important tests.


There’s a large bank of questions within the app, which means you can sit a mock theory test, as you will for part one of your ADI test – it even features a clock which counts down to really add the pressure. Test your knowledge and find out whether you are making the grade and identify problem areas in which you need extra support from your trainer.


Improve your chances of passing the Theory Test by studying anywhere with this useful app!

  • Easy to use
  • Over 200 questions
  • Countdown timer

  • Selection of top tips

In Car Video Training

As well as the above reading materials, DVD ROM and theory test app we also record each of your in car training sessions. This is a proven method used by our trainers to help you progress with your driving and instructional ability. Watching your training sessions back gives you the chance to review your performance and highlight your good points, but also areas that need attention. Take a look at some examples of our in car video training for our ADI part 3 training.

The below example is from a part 3 role play exam, which covers a range of subjects that will be included in the exam.

‘An excellent training school helped me in all aspects of the training, to pass all parts of the course first time.



Mr P Saunders ADI


‘My trainer made all my part 1 and 2 enjoyable and with his help I managed to pass both exams. As I have been driving for 6 years I had many bad habits to get rid of to get up to standard to pass. The teaching is clear, excellent and very importantly I looked forward to each lesson. I strongly recommend 4 wheelz and look forward to working with them. Friendly staff as well .’
