Only ADIs and trainee licence-holders can teach to drive for payment. They must display a badge on the windscreen during lessons. An ADI displays a green badge on the windscreen, and a trainee driving instructor displays a pink badge.
You must have a provisional driving licence when you’re learning to drive.
If you practise your driving with friends and relatives (without paying them) they must:
- be over 21
- have had their driving licence for 3 years
- be qualified to drive the type of vehicle you want to learn in
You can be fined up to £1,000 and get 3 to 6 penalty points on your provisional licence if you drive without the right supervision.
