The 12 lessons in the Key Driver Training (KDT) programme are designed to:
help you prepare for the practical driving test.
cover some of the most important skills and behaviours (driving habits) that a learner driver must have.
guide your progress; and
highlight the contribution the Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) and Sponsor (person who accompanies you while you are practising) make to this process.
BDTAS have also developed a separate Key Learner Driver Training (KLDT) syllabus. It sets out the ‘best practice’ that you and your ADI should follow so that you can develop the full range of knowledge, skills, and behaviours that a safe and responsible driver needs to acquire. While you are learning to drive you should cover all these skills over time. In addition, the KEY DRIVER TRAINING (KDT) programme focuses on all the particularly crucial driving skills.

It is designed to avoid high risk of harm to learner drivers and other road users by checking and, if necessary, correcting the driver’s:
Each lesson should be covered in one hour. Your ADI should choose a route for your lesson that gives you the most opportunity to have relevant practice and demonstration.
At the end of each lesson you should have achieved certain ‘outcomes’. These are statements that will either be:
accurate descriptions of your competence at the end of a lesson; or
can be used by your ADI as reference points for advice to you or your Sponsor about the areas of your driving where you need more practice and what you should focus on.
