The MSA GB PDI Guide - Revised June 201731-08-2017  
The MSA GB PDI Guide provides help for those who want to become ADIs.

It is not intended to be a substitute for instructor training or for the information contained in the DSA folder "Your Road to Becoming an Approved Driving Instructor" which the MSA recommends all PDIs read.

The guide gives details of three sections of the ADI examinations and explains the qualification system. It gives help and advice on the test of theoretical knowledge and hazard perception skills and suggests strategies to help candidates to prepare for the test and advice on how to work through the examinations in a tried and tested way including the first simple rule for tackling any examination. The guide includes a number of helpful tips for preparing for the ADI Part 2 examination. Including pointing out some of the common errors candidates make like driving in the manner of a learner driver, when the supervisor is looking for a drive worthy of an experienced driver who has a high level of technical skill.

Advice on the Part 3 test of instructional ability includes briefings and highlights the difference between instructional and directional briefings. Examples are given of the way examiners set up pre set tests and how they describe what is required. The guide concludes with a list of commonly used acronyms. One new member told MSA head office: "This guide answered all the questions I had been dying to ask my ADI trainer but was frightened he would think I was an idiot if I did."
