Stage 1 Theory Test Training
Stage 1 of the ISM Driving Instructor Training Programme focuses on theoretical aspects of driving, including theory, rules of the road, rules and regulations, ricability, pedagogics, customer focus etc, and is conducted on a 1:1 basis. Prior to this training course, you will have received your Home Study pack which should be studied thoroughly beforehand.
This Classroom Training day is usually scheduled a few weeks before your Stage 1 exam, after your home study is completed. We also provide Stage 1 Training Manuals to you which your Tutor will work through during your Theory Training day. We will provide you with Mock-Exams to ensure you have full knowledge of each section that you'll be expected to know in your Stage 1 exam.
ISM currently provide this specialized training in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway and Waterford.
About the Course
Stage 1 of your training will teach you about the theory and hazard perception elements of the course. You’ll be helped to get to grips with these subjects by our advanced learning materials and expert tuition from your ISM trainer. We also provide all the training materials that you need, including the latest books, DVDs and CD-ROM-based learning aids. The learning materials include mock tests and other exercises to prepare you for the Stage 1 exam, so that there are no surprises on the day. We make sure that classroom training has a practical focus to complement the on-road trainings and during the day you’ll be able to discuss any issues that arise out of your training and ask questions.
Topics covered include an in-depth analysis of the Rules of the Road, including:
- Explanation on and illustration of each manoeuvre required on the driving test.
- Full details of all legal requirements in the area of provisional licence classes, test applications and procedures.

ADI Driver Theory Stage 1 Exam
Your first exam is a multiple-choice theory test. It contains one hundred questions on all aspects of driving and the rules of the road. You need to gain an overall pass mark, answering 85 of 100 questions correctly, but as a potential instructor you will be expected to achieve a much higher standard!
A map has such small print, it's impossible to safely read it while driving. If you are needing to find a specific address, write out the basic directions in large writing and short sentences, before you drive there. If you must read the directions (not the map) while on the road, do it where you are stopped.
