Driver Instructor Training
Being a driving instructor can be a very rewarding career. To be a successful driving instructor, you will need to have the right personal skills as well as the technical teaching skills.
The training can be spread out over a period of time if you have work commitments or done over a shorter time if you wish to qualify as soon as possible.
To become a driving instructor you must have held a driving licence for at least 4 of the past 6 years and undergo a Disclosure and Debarring Service check.
You can then move onto the qualification process which consists of 3 exams:
- Part 1 - Theory & Hazard Perception Test
- Part 2 - Driving Test
- Part 3 - Instructional Ability Test
Part 1 Training
The training programme gives you everything you need to pass the Part 1 test. All of the DVSA's recommended publications will be provided to you as part of your package.
Most of the learning for this stage is done by distance learning but you will be in regular contact with your trainer by phone or email so if you ever have a question we can answer it straight away.
Part 2 Training
All Part 2 training is conducted on a one-to-one basis. You will receive a minimum of 18 hours of in car tuition prior to your driving test.
Part 3 Training
All Part 3 training is conducted on a one-to-one basis. You will receive a minumum of 40 hours in car training taking you through every aspect of teaching someone to drive.
