Approved Driving Instructor Driving Assessor

Salary £31,074 pro rata

Part Time – 22.5 hours per week

An opportunity has arisen for an Approved Driving Instructor to join our specialist Driving Assessment team based in Southampton.

Wessex DriveAbility is one of 20 Mobility Centres in the UK accredited to undertake medical ‘fitness to drive’ assessments on behalf of the DVLA, Hampshire Police and self-referred clients. Wessex DriveAbility also carries out specialist adaptation assessments to enable drivers with medical conditions to return to driving using adapted driving controls. All assessments are carried out in our own fleet of standard and adapted modern, dual-controlled vehicles.

Working both independently and with specialist Occupational Therapists, this role requires empathetic people skills, a high standard of written and oral communication skills and excellent driving appraisal ability.

Applicants should be experienced ADIs with a minimum of 3 years’ post-qualification experience. You should also have recent experience of teaching in a dual-braked vehicle.

No previous experience of fitness to drive assessments is necessary as a full induction package and training will be offered. A significant part of the daily work requires accurate, detailed reports to be produced within a set time-scale, therefore a high standard of written English is required together with a good knowledge of Microsoft Word and general IT skills.

Work will predominantly be in our Southampton Centre, however travel to outreach locations in Ferndown, Basingstoke, Newbury, Salisbury and the Isle of Wight will sometimes be necessary. Travel to outreaches is undertaken in work time and full expenses will be paid.

In addition to an attractive salary, a generous paid holiday allowance and pension scheme is offered.
