Green badge, what does it mean



In order to teach people to drive and receive payment instructors must be registered with the DSA (Driving Standards Agency) and hold a pink trainee licence (PDI) or a green fully qualified licence (ADI). It has been recently reported by the AA that around one in every eight driving instructors currently offering driving tuition through bigger schools are PDI's (trainee driving instructors). All PDI's need to train in order to pass the DSA part 3 instruction test. PDI's train with learner drivers whilst their schools are charging pupils the same as fully qualified instructors. When booking your driving lessons, make sure the instructor is an ADI. The badge should be displayed on the left hand side of the windscreen.
