Our ADI part 1 - theory Course

At DTC we believe that if you are going to teach a subject you need to be a "Subject Matter Expert" or SME. The Part 1 Theory Course is the first part of this subject matter. Our research shows that over 80% of drivers have not read a copy of the Highway Code since they passed their driving test. So this course is designed to refresh your knowledge and also teach you all the subject in order to pass the DSA ADI Part 1 test. DSA pass rates for this test is currently 49%.

  • After you have attended our comprehensive course, your ADI Part 1 Theory Test will be booked. You are given 3 weeks after the course to study the course material and carry out mock tests before attending the test. We are confident that with our course and your private study, under our guidance, will be enough for you to pass this test first time.

What is the ADI theory test like?

The theory test is made up of two parts; 100 multiple choice questions and the hazard perception part. The multiple choice part is delivered using a touch screen computer and mouse and the hazard perception part records your responses through the use of a computer mouse button. You need to pass both parts to pass the theory test. If you pass one part and fail the other you will fail the whole test, and you will need to take both parts again

For the hazard perception test there are no separate versions for different vehicles, each vehicle category takes the same test, however the pass mark is different for different categories of tests.
