How to renew your ADI registration
Renewing your Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) registration is now even quicker and easier than ever before. By allowing the DSA permission to use your photocard driving licence photo for your approved driving instructor (ADI) certificate, you now don’t need to send anything through the post and your application can be fully completed online.

How to renew if you don’t have a photocard licence
If you don’t have a photocard licence, or don’t want the DSA to use your photocard licence photo, you’ll have to send a recent passport sized photo to DSA. You’ll also have to print out your application form and send it with your photo.
If you want to exchange your paper driving licence for a photocard, please visit the Direct Gov website.
How to renew your registration
Your registration as an ADI lasts for four years. Before it runs out, you can apply for registration for another four-years, but you’ll need to ensure you get a criminal record disclosure before you apply for renewal.
You can find out more in DSA’s guide to renewing your ADI registration.
